The Trident 80B is a 2 channel rack-mountable version of the legendary Series 80B console designed by Trident Studios in the late 1970's.
Comprising two independent channels, each with a microphone/line amplifier and four band equalizer, it is designed to process incoming signals from a microphone or line level instrument and output to a recording device, such as a digital audio workstation or analogue multi-track tape recorder.
It incorporates an exact replica of the mic preamp and equaliser design that gave the original console its unique sound. These consoles have been used to record just about every major artist in the past three decades, including Elton John, Dire Straits, David Bowie, Rod Stewart and Stevie Wonder to name but a few. More recently they have been used to record artists such as Radiohead and Pavarotti.
The Trident Audio Developments Series 80B rack unit therefore brings with it a historic pedigree and is offered at a price that is now affordable to the smaller studios and home recordists.
