Overstayer Modular Channel 8755DM
The 8755D is a stereo channel with filters, eq, compression, and harmonics stages throughout, with sophisticated routing and a series/parallel mixer matrix. High quality components and circuitry are used throughout. Though the unit can get extreme, the design aesthetic is that of a console in that it is capable of handling and maintaining the fidelity of a full mix through the unit. The Modular Channel, and analog gear in general have a bit of chaos in them, which is why we love them and build them! Being a stereo unit, we trim for better than 1dB matching through a wide range of settings, but deviations are inevitable in certain circumstances (high filter resonance for instance). Generally these are more apparent visually on a meter than audibly. The Modular Channel is as much an instrument as a classic channel. It has several gain stages that are collectively capable of massive amounts of gain. High and low frequency instability and noise are possible especially at high gain settings, so be aware to keep headphone and speaker levels in check at all times.
Overstayer M-A-S 12826
The Overstayer M-A-S gives you the harmonic character and peak rounding of classic recording and mixing chains in a simple, highly controllable rack-mount unit.

The limiting nature of the M-A-S stages rounds and bends peaks resulting in increased apparent volume, without the timing artifacts associated with compression. Its integrated pushbutton High and Low EQ presets, High Pass Filter and Emphasis circuits help further shape the harmonic content of source material.

Use it on the individual tracks for cumulative benefits. The M-A-S can add consistency as peaks and harsh transients get smoothed and absorbed into the performance, making balancing tracks in the mix easier, and lessening the need for bus limiting down the line. Used on a full mix, the added harmonic content can energize, and add cohesiveness and detail. The Mix control allows the character to be balanced to taste.

Bring harmonics and tone to your bass, synths, drum machines and samplers with the integrated front panel high impedance input.
