Aphex has announced two new additions to its 500 Series module line, the CX 500 and Project 500.
The new CX 500 is based on the Aphex CX-1 compressor/gate unit – one of the first 500 Series modules from the early 80s. It provides the company’s patented EasyRider compressor and logic-assisted gate, a Jensen output transformer, and multi-function meter for gain reduction, gating and output level.
The new Project 500 is a module-sized version of Aphex’s Project Channel rack unit. A full channel strip, it includes a Class A mic preamp, optical compressor, and dual-band semi parametric EQ. This full-featured channel strip will be aggressively priced to be part of complete solutions with 500 Series racks.
“These new 500 Series modules are based on our legendary designs,” says Aphex chairman David Wiener, “but we’ve added modern features – and more affordability – to make the CX 500 and Project 500 home run products.”
