The Trident 88 is a classically styled, in-line, eight-buss analog console and an advancement in lineage of the revered Series 80 mixing desks. 40 Channel with 8 Bus.
Designed with manufacturability in mind, the 88 is artfully constructed for ease of use and workhorse reliability. Available in stock configurations of 8, 16, 24, 32 and 40 channels, the model 88 is sized to fit the modern, high end facility - whether private, institutional, or professional.
Along with the pleasingly familiar routing and feel of a classic Trident desk, are modern refinements that serve to improve functionality, workflow and performance specifications. For example, integration with outboard processors and mic pre's, such as 500 format, is provided simply and elegantly by means of an exclusive, switchable input, which bypasses the channel preamp circuitry and allows for insertion of external signal sources directly to the channel equalizer.
Being a Trident, the equalization is of course, wonderful and on the 88 - it is also plentiful, on the channel, monitor, effects returns and group sections.
In the area of customizability, the 88 has options for vu metering, transformer I/O, automation, short loading and channel configurations exceeding forty inputs.
Features found throughout the 88 make for a straightforward and powerful package, but paramount to all else is The Sound. Among the many styles, preferences and methods of recording exists the expectation that a board must have the ability to be pushed hard and sound big. This is a hallmark of the series 80 consoles and the 88 carries that tradition forward.
Bottom line: The Trident 88 was created with all of this in mind so that you can use it to make great sounding tracks.
