P-Control: adjustable Phase Controller
Designed to correct audio signal phase issues, the P-Control provides an elegant and high quality transparent solution to improve recordings when combining audio from two similar signal sources. With a extensive front panel control and switchable transformer balanced isolation, the P-Control puts you in control of audio phase manipulation. Audio phase inconsistencies arise in all manner of day-to-day recording environments. This is especially true when combining two signals to capture that elusive fat recorded sound. Audio signal from two sources can become incoherent and even cancel each other out if phase issues get out of hand.
The P-Control can be inserted in-line or via the insert bus using balanced XLR cables. The phase of connected audio source material can be manipulated by up to 180 degrees with the simple adjustment of the front panels large format rotary encoder. Bypass, Low-cut filter, and phase reverse switches are provided along with output level adjustment and VU metering.
Applying phase correction to guitar and bass tracks, drums, or any other signal feed is simple with the P-Control. Find the sweet spot with ease, and enlarge your instruments recorded tracks.
The unit is housed in a stylish extruded aluminium external chassis that can be rack-mounted using SM Pro Audio’s Q-Rack rack-mount adaptor.
