AM1 – our state-of-the-art pure analog mixing console – does not only stand for superb sound quality but also for elaborate functionality. The essence of AM1 Insert- and Stereo-stages has been extracted and then supplemented to form a unique stand-alone unit. IM1 has been designed for setting up a high end analog signal chain in conjunction with other analog equipment.
Dedicated level BOOST, DRY/WET Ratio control, MID/SIDE stereo conversion, individual I/O MONITORING.
Impedance Select switch (Z) on Insert Return.
Classical circuitry based on MID/SIDE stereo technique, adapted to real-world applications
Compatibility to standard 500 frames (1-slot breakout panel providing stereo insert I/Os included). Special rear panel covering all connectors when operated in Zähl Rack.
"I've waited nearly a year for this! The Zaehl IM1 is taken from the very heart of their magnificent AM1 console. It has stereo base control with constant mid option, a return for mid/side processing with wet/dry, meaning I can put any one of my hardware units as an insert with wet/dry/mid/side function, plus manipulate the image with the stereo base control! I am in audio nerd heaven. It looks like such a simple box, but under the hood is endless creativity. Very happy right now!"
