The VTC (Valve Technology Console) is a fully modular in-line multitrack mixer that offers all the benefits of the compact 8 buss / multiple tape output format but with the supreme advantage of TL Audio's critically acclaimed valve circuitry - which forms an integral part of the channel, monitor, group and master section signal paths.

Control room B can record 24 tracks simultaneously to either Protools 11 or ADAT tape. The VTC consol can also return two individual headphones sends to up to 16 musicians.
