Details Specifications

FELiX is the brand new, studio quality 2 channel blending
acoustic instrument   and mic preamp, designed for working musicians,
engineers, sound   companies or venues looking for the highest quality
solution for   amplifying stringed instruments. FELiX is built into a
roadworthy   (beer-resistant) floor unit chassis of anodized aluminum
and steel, portable   enough to leave the rack at home but bring studio
quality to the stage.   With the same stunning audio performance and
legendary reliability as   Grace Design’s pro audio range, FELiX brings
open, musical and nuanced   preamplification to any performance
situation. A powerful eq section allows simple and intuitive tone
shaping for even   the most unruly of instruments. Each channel’s
variable high  pass   filter cuts 12dB per octave from 20Hz to 1kHz, and
can also be set as a   notch filter for chasing down problem feedback
or rumble areas.   Parametric mid range controls cover from 70Hz all the
way to 8KHz. While   fixed low and high controls are carefully voiced
for musical shading of   bass and treble. Controls are simple and clearly marked on a bright
panel, making them   easy to read and tweak on a dark stage. Footswitch
functions include a   mute / tune switch for muting all outputs except
the dedicated tuner   out, a boost switch which activates a variable
boost circuit, and   finally, an A/B mode switch for when FELiX is in
A/B mode (which simply   toggles between the two different channels). FELiX brings the kitchen sink approach to I/O. Inputs
 include a 48V XLR mic input and two instrument inputs. Two independent
  transformer isolated DI outputs can be sourced from either the mix or
  the individual channel. This allows you to send the front of house a
mix   or each channel independently. A dedicated, level controlled
amplifier   output can be sourced from the mix or channel 2. A dedicated
tuner   output stays active when all the other outputs are muted. A
side panel   mounted 1/8” mini jack headphone amplifier is there for
practicing,   private noodling during boring soundchecks, or
scrutinizing dubious eq   decisions. A TRS insert is included for adding
effects, and finally, a   remote footswitch jack is included if FELiX
is going to spend his life   in a rack or up off the floor. Guitar, bass, fiddle, mandolin, cello, dare we say  
banjo, that weird 3 string gourd thing - FELiX is your instrument’s new
 best friend. Flexible, reliable, a good listener and  eager to make
you   sound better, he is also your new best friend. Designed and built by Grace Designs in sunny Lyons, CO, USA.
