The Ark8 is fully modular, each channel has been split up in separate modules / sections.
Different versions of each of the channel section modules are available.
While the Ark8 has been designed as inline console, the Ark8 also offers stereo input channels and split-console functionality.

Each input channel is made up of different sections:
* VU meter section
* Upper section which holds input and routing modules
* Middle section which can hold our multi EQ modules, or 500 / 51x modules
* Lower section which holds sends and faders

This is overview of the modules, with links to product page of each module.
Modules are available with Silver or Black faceplate.

VU Meters
Top Input Channel

Each 8 channel bucket has its own VU meters, which can read Mic/Line input, DAW input or Direct Output.
All VU meters are fitted with LED’s, (no meter light bulbs blowing out in the midst of production).
The LED intensity is controlled through the
Global Lights Dim control on the master section.
Turn it up if you work in a bright room, turn it down if you work in a darkened room.

IP115
Upper Input Channel

The IP115 inline input / routing module is an alternative to the IP111
They are very similar, but the Mic input of the IP111 has been replaced by a Group input on the IP115.

IP211
Middle Input Channel

The IP211 is designed to add colour to your signal.
It has 4 EQ sections, which can be combined on the same signal path or can be used independent from each other on either the small fader or large fader signal path.
