The Millennia STT-1 Origin is an in depth channel strip that is billed as a "recording system."  The unit contains a four band EQ, compressor, and de-esser.  This is an analog piece of gear that has both XLR and 1/4 inch connections as well as a variety of other options.  This is indeed in rack mountable form and will take up two rack spaces.


The configuration of the Millennia STT-1 Origin definitely has a whole lot going on, but is definitely welcome considering how versatile this unit is.  The basic parameters are easy to locate and most of them will be recognizable for those who have experience with channel strip like.  While it would take too long to go through all of the different sections and parameters available on the STT-1, one feature that sticks out to me is the rare ability to control both tube gain and solid state gain on the mic pre, which allows for getting some interesting sounds.  I haven't seen the manual for this, but would definitely recommend having it around as this is a detailed piece of gear.


The sound quality of the Millennia STT-1 Origin absolutely top notch through and through.  Everything on this channels trip has full bodied sound and I can't say that I've found an application where I wouldn't want to at least try this channel strip if I had access to it.  The mic pre is definitely of top tier quality as is the EQ, compressor, and de-esser.  All of the features have some in depth parameters, some of which are unique and some of which will be very familiar to experienced users.  Overall, this is a great sounding unit and in terms of sound quality I have no complaints whatsoever.


While I wish I had the Millennia STT-1 Origin more at my disposal, when I have been able to use it in the recording studio it has been an absolute pleasure.  However, this is defiintely an expensive piece of equipment and is probably only accessible for professionals.  Having said that, I do think that if you are a home studio looking for a channel strip to get an overall better tone and are willing to make an investment, that the Millennia STT-1 Origin is a great way to go...
