I bought mine that week. You must arrive at new settings of Threshold, Attack and Release that cause the desire sidechain modulation as well as proper mainchain compressor operation. I got big, fat and impressive results with the on acoustic guitars, bass direct and vocals.

I found the equalizer to be smooth and prefect for vocals but not quite as cranky as I sometimes want when recording certain musical instruments such as percussion or drums. Back To Home Page. Special spectral control including de-ess is available with the dual sweep mid EQ to side-chain switch.

When you push in the “EQ to SC” switch, the two mid-band sections get routed to the sidechain input of the compressor. As described, the preamp sounds crisp and crisp, assuming you have the right mic. Feedback Found an error or want to give us feedback about this page?

Discrete Class A, variable active and switched passive design. The Treble band’s frequency selection points are: We’re looking forward to hearing from you and aim to solve any problems as soon as we can.


As a company, we have one single objective: The equalizer is divided into two separate equalizers: The front panel, at first glance, may seem a little busy and complicated but all four processes are grouped in an ordered and logical way. No customer has written a text about this; or they have avwlon a text in a different language.

I used “high gain” for a “hotter” mic sound but then the adjustment of an exact, working level becomes touchy. Using a tube U mic, the was a tinge brighter 73sp some of the others. When I think of all the individual pieces of equipment that I would collect and patch together to simply record a vocal, the VT seems like a godsend indeed since it is a combination of 737dp tube pre-amplifier, tube opto-compressor, discrete Class A transistor four-band equalizer with side-chain routing ability and tube line level balanced output stage.

There are three separate inputs on the Balanced Class A 20k ohms, dB to 28dB.

I find that there is more of a “linear” feeling in setting an appropriate level. The high and low frequency bands provide the smooth characteristics of an all passive avaloon, while the dual mid bands include variable frequency and switched Q-width selection. There is a variable bass cut filter between the two pre-amp tubes. There is a “soft start,” 40 second time delay power up routine that is said to enhance tube life.


The four high quality tubes are configured as singled ended anode coupled followers.

Having three inputs available means you can immediately switch the between recording a direct guitar to recording a xvalon to processing an already recorded track with the EQ and compressor. The VT uses an all discrete, Class A transistor circuit in the four-band equalizer. The opto-compressor features two Class A triode tube sections.

The optical attenuator acts as a passive level controller. Thomann uses cookies to give you the best shopping experience. This is where you “make up” or “take away” level to achieve your final recording level to tape.

Avalon Afalon is at P. Avalon helps bend the learning curve by including a “Quick Set-Up Operating Guide” in the form of a full-size drawing of the front panel.
