Pristine Sound with Switchable Vintage Tones
The Phonic Celeus Tube Analog Mixer is a compact 3 channel mixer with pristine analogue performance, low noise mic pre-amplifier and solid circuitry all in a robust enclosure.
With the 41 segment level mixer you can accurately measure output for a clean sound that is suitable for recording and live performance.
Also featuring an independent 12AU7 tube, the Celeus Tube allows you to choose between the crystal-clear analog sound of transistor outputs and the natural, vintage sound of the vacuum tube. The unique and exciting feature is primarily used for adding depth and warmth to your audio; offering a natural sound that, many argue, cannot be reproduced using digital technology.
Multiple Playback and Input Options
The Phonic Celeus has versatile inputs and media playing options; including a dedicated headphones jack, combo input jack, +48V phantom power and much more.
Each of the input channels is equipped with independent 3-band EQs which provide you with the ability to tailor the sound and ensure optimum audio quality.
The Celeus Tube Mixer also has built-in Bluetooth connectivity for wirelessly streaming audio from your smartphone or device, so you can integrate backing tracks and samples into the mix.
With USB connectivity for recording/playback, the Phonic Celeus can store your main mix directly onto a USB flash drive, as well as play stored digital audio files that can be integrated into your mix. The USB Recorder’s source signal is taken directly from each individual input channel. When playing audio, the signal will pass through the TAPE IN/USB PLAY control. The Celeus Tube supports playback of WMA and MP3 files with bit rates of up to 320 kbit/s. The Celeus USB player module also features approximately 70MB of onboard storage to use for playback. That may sound small but that could mean up to 60 minutes of music at 128 Kbps, or a few hours of speech at 40 Kbps. To upload files to the onboard storage, you will need a USB-A to USB-A cable. Connect the USB connector on the face of the Celeus to your computer and it will be recognized as a USB storage device. Simply copy your files to the Celeus Tube. Files on onboard storage will only be available when a USB flash drive is not connected.
Plug’n’Play USB Connectivity
The Phonic Celeus Tube is also Windows & Mac compatible - providing a stereo signal to and from a computer for recording and playback. By simply connecting the USB cable provided along with your Celeus to the device and your personal computer or laptop, you are able to send DVD quality (16-bit stereo, with a 48 kHz sampling rate) signal to and from your mixer. By doing this, you are actually turning your Celeus Tube into a highly useful plug’n’play soundcard for your computer. The USB sends an audio stream of the Main Left and Right(record out) signal of your mixer to the computer. You can use almost any dedicated Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software to record the signal from the Celeus mixer. You can also set the mixer as your default audio device.
