The Tree Audio Roots Gen II is an eight-channel valve and hybrid recording console based on an all valve channel strip design, balanced inserts 4 aux sends and 4 500 series slots.
The Tree Audio Roots Gen II has all tube EQ and limiter, mic pre with line in, filter and metering. The EQ section uses a Baxandall type curve with controls over low and high bands fro quick shaping of the sound, while the limiter uses an optical design with a simple knob to control the amount. A three-way toggle switch is used to engage the limiter as well as activating the side-chain 6dB/oct 250Hz high-pass filter.
The Mic preamp provides up to 60dB of gain and is complemented with a direct output trim. A selectable high-pass offers a choice of three frequencies, 80Hz, 125Hz and 250Hz while an input transformer impedance select lets you find the best impedance to match your microphone or even provide different tonalities.
At the top can be found four aux sends with the option to set each pair as Pre or Post (or Off) These can be made to send to the 500 Series section where a 500 series mixbus compressor or other modules can be added.
The Roots II also uses a fully regulated tube linear power supply.
