flock audio 8 channel cx level

Flock Audio is shipping its CX, a line level boosting module with eight channels of transparent level boost for microphones, instruments and other analog devices. The compact booster unit, available either stand-alone or rackmount, brings all of these devices up to the +4 line level standard and provides increased control and interconnectivity with Flock’s PATCH-series patchbays as well as other live and studio applications.

Here’s a video of its features:

The CX offers a conversion-free, sonically transparent level boost for each channel that can bring any microphone or instrument up to line level. Users can then create, store, and quickly recall presets for any of these devices and seamlessly integrate them into an existing PATCH workflow via PATCH APP or PATCH APP DX. CX can also operate outside of the PATCH ecosystem with the CX STANDALONE APP, allowing it to be utilized anywhere that line level boosting for analog devices is required.
