Overview

Every one of your mics will benefit from the PreSonus Eureka Pro Recording Channel. It is a high-quality single-channel recording front end with mic preamp, compression, EQ, phase inversion, rumble filter, and high-pass filter. The Class A transformer-coupled channel strip device features variable impedance and a saturation knob for tube saturation emulation. The full-featured compressor has variable threshold, attack, release, and gain makeup controls. Soft-knee compression mode and a hi-pass filter on the sidechain for frequency-dependent compression such as de-essing.

The audio transformer on the input stage offers a fully parametric 3-band EQ with overlapping bands and switchable staging for the EQ and compressor, enabling you to swap the order of the EQ and compression. Instrument, line, and microphone inputs as well as switchable gain reduction for the VU meter, dual outputs (TRS and XLR) that can be used simultaneously, and an optional digital output card capable of up to 24-bit 96kHz output on AES/EBU or S/PDIF. 48V phantom power unit with an 80Hz rumble filter, a 20dB pad, a phase inversion button, and balanced send and return jacks for inserting outboard gear.

Get That "Big Studio" Sound Without Breaking the Bank!!!!!.

By Fernandez Shaw

from Chicago Illinois

Comments about PreSonus Eureka Pro Recording Channel:

The Eureka channel strip may have a modest price, but don't let that fool you!. Upgrade to this guy, and you may never need another channel strip again!. Google the reviews on it-we're talking serious value hear!. Apart from a great signal path, the Eureka has variable input impedance, so you can match and tune it for all types of microphones and applications!. Use the "Saturate" feature to simulate tape-saturation effects-very cool!. You've also get a full-featured compressor and a parametric EQ!!!!!.

Sounds good to me

By Ur Favorite

from Baltimore,MD

Comments about PreSonus Eureka Pro Recording Channel:

honestly i never owned a standalone mic preamp to say what it should sound like but i must say it sounds way better than my fast track pro's preamp does. I dont use the eq or compression either i much rather do that through a daw.But i definitely feel its worth the purchase,it makes the vocals sound warmer in my personal opinion and you wont go broke paying for it either.GO FOR IT

Great for the price!

By Fscofield

from New York

Comments about PreSonus Eureka Pro Recording Channel:

Presonus finally got it right. Having owned a firepod that worked when it wanted too, I was a little skeptical about the Eureka.Im happily surprised.This is a nice little strip, very transparent if you want it to be and about the best bass DI Ive ever heard in this price range. Very nice on all guitars also as well as vocals. The only downside is the EQ, its not very usable due to a very small Q range. Oh, and like everything presonus, the knobs are too small, too close together and so reflective you cant read them without getting close. Make it a two rack space peice and give us some room!. Overall a great piece of gear though, im very happy with it!

Eureka!

By darren

from Undisclosed

Comments about PreSonus Eureka Pro Recording Channel:

This is a very nice channel strip that is worth the extra money if you're looking at strips in the lower price range. This is your tone your talking about. Your tone! Of course, if you're researching these you know what people are saying about how this sounds very nice. I would even prefer this to some of the more expensive units out there. I would prefer an Avalon, maybe, but that was way out of my range. Here's a few other things you should know about this. Periodically, Presonus offers the digital card free when you buy this. I got this, although it doesn't have the right digital connection for what I have right now, it will eventually be useful for me. It is easy to install. I also got a free AT 2020 mic with my deal, but that may not happen any more. The small knobs are arranged a little close together, which makes tweaking a little tough. If you can install this more at eye level than down by your knees it is easier to use. Plus it looks so nice you want everyone to see it. When I installed this between two efx units, they squeezed it in a way that made some of the knobs grind. Switching places fixed this- more likely a problem with the other units or my rack. The XLR is located in the back, so get a nice mic cable and leave it plugged in and accessable. With the push of a button you can switch the order of the compressor and EQ. Very cool. It's also good to have such a nice parametric EQ right in your channel strip. This does not have a tube, but has a simulated tube saturation knob. The bottom line is that just like when working with the real stuff, this will sound good on some material, but not everything. It's there if you need it.

A lot of value for the price

By Fuzzball

from Ida, MI

Comments about PreSonus Eureka Pro Recording Channel:

If you want a high quality studio tool at an affordable price this is the item for you. This unit has class A transformer coupled mic Preamps that do a very good job. The preamps are quiet and add a nice color to the sound. The EQ is usable but nothing spectacular. The compressor is also a very good tool to have in your studio. The compressors are good for vocals but them seemed to be better suited for bass guitar tracks. The unit is easy to use and it seems to be built well so it should not have any problems. Presonus has always been a good company in my opinion and they have always provided me with great customer support. I do not think you will be disappointed with this unit.

dont be fooled by the price

By John D.

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about PreSonus Eureka Pro Recording Channel:

This joint will blow you away! You will be surprised at how good it sounds. I dont have a lot of experience with other preamps but this one rocks. For the money it would be really hard to beat. I heard that some comparisons could be made with the joe meek preamps but I cant see how they can live up to the Eureka. The knobs are a little small if you have big fingers but you have lots of control over different parameters of the compressor and EQ. I'm sure if you had the money you could get something nicer but for the value this is an absolute A+.

Super clear, for a super deal

By Aukey

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about PreSonus Eureka Pro Recording Channel:

I was looking for a good clean mic pre in this price range. I tried many other brands, but not only does the eureka's mic pre sound better, it's a full channel strip. It also has a preamp bypass and compression bypass button, this is a really good feature. The a/d converters are really great quality and are worth the upgrade. The light and knobs are top quality and feel like they will last forever. I feel this is the best product for the price, and sounds much better then low quality tube pre amps.
