HMX - MOSFET Drive We know that plenty of engineers love the sound of tubes/valves and if you're one of them, then you're going to love HMX.Travel back in time with ASP800's very own custom harmonic distortion control. Similar to vintage valve preamplifier designs of the 1960s, HMX provides a sweet, thick tone that will sound incredible on anything from drums to electric guitars. Try it on bass synth, or 808 too! By using discrete MOSFET technology, HMX produces asymmetrical harmonic distortion giving you the option to add richness and body to the pristine tone of the Audient mic preamp, D.
Take control of your sound and bring your audio to life, 1960's style.
