Switchable impedance on mic input, 1200ohm or 300ohm and phantom power with LED indicator. A flexible front panel DI instrument input for additional sound sources.
Make fine gain adjustments and overload the main gain stage for more character. The MP73a is a 500 Series vintage-style one channel microphone, line, and instrument preamplifier.
The signal path uses only discrete components like resistors, capacitors and transistors. The microphone and line input and the line output are transformer balanced, using two different transformers, each one optimized for its purpose. Great for guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, and other instruments. The circuit used in the MP73a is similar to the preamp section in the classic 1073 module with a corresponding sound character that is warm, punchy, sweet and musical. These classic characteristics have been heard on countless recordings through the years and has a vibe and tone that works very well on most sources and in most genres.
The essence of this sound (that you neve-r thought you could afford) , is now available at a surprisingly low cost, making it available to nearly everyone. Vintage Style electronics, no integrated circuits in the signal path.
Transformer balanced, fully floating output. Enough microphone gain to handle passive ribbon microphones with quiet sound sources. Total gain range from -15 to +80 dB. Switchable impedance on microphone input, 1200 or 300 ohms. Switchable phantom power with a LED indicator.
A flexible front panel instrument input for additional sound sources. Make fine gain adjustments and overload the main gain stage(s) for more character. Selectable AIR equalizer adds a small boost above 10 kHz. Selectable 600 ohm Output Termination at the back of the module. Compatible with 500 series rack formats.
