Summit Audio ECS-410 Everest Flagship Channel Strip
The Summit Audio ECS-410 Everest Configurable Tube Channel Strip takes 4 of the most intense, flavorful audio processing blocks and fuses them into 1 master channel strip. A distinctly different four-section analog processor and mic preamp, the ECS-410 Everest is ideal for tracking, recording, and processing. With its own fully balanced IO, each section is completely independent or can be internally routed together via TouchPatch, a unique and amazingly intuitive routing section.
Mz-2 Mic & Inst. Preamp
The Mz-2 is a spectacular sounding microphone and instrument preamplifier with the ability to switch between tube and solid-state input stages.
DC-1 Dual Mode Dynamics
The Dc-1 module is an ultra low noise dynamics control section with switchable Classic “soft knee” smooth compression or Tight mode, which provides a much higher compression ratio.
Fe-1 Passive EQ
The Fe-1 Passive Equalizer offers up three bands of smooth Summit passive tube EQ with fixed frequency select knobs with six settings each.
Db2 Drive Bus/Output
The Db2 Drive Bus has multiple gain stages for overdriving in either vacuum tube or discrete transistor mode, allowing for all sorts of tonal variation from ultra clean to overdrive.
All for one, one for all
Everest is a state of the art channel strip comprised of four completely independent modules, each with its own fully balanced input and output, and the ability to effortlessly route and reroute each module internally entirely in the analog domain.
TouchPatch and go
With the TouchPatch routing system you’re in control of your signal path quickly and efficiently. With just the push of a button, you can easily route any combination of the ECS-410 internal modules.
Take the direct route
Each section has its own I/O (and in some cases, multiple I/O), so each one can be wired into your patch bay for individual use. Any section not routed internally is ready to be used on its own as if it were a completely independent piece of gear….and all six of Everest’s outputs are always on and available, allowing for all sorts of creative routing and patching options..
Really well built
The Summit Audio design philosophy considers the entire package when it comes to crafting gear. We pay special attention to the details of construction and have included many refinements over the years so units are durable enough to handle the rigors of the road.
