But when you want punchy, vintage tonal character, that's where Cranborne's Mojo circuit comes in. Pump it up with Mojo. When vintage British tonal character is required, rather than using a transformer and having to live with its drawbacks, Cranborne developed their Mojo circuit. This control lets you dial in your choice of two discrete analog saturation types - Thump (transformer emulation) and Cream (tube emulation) - which can turn the Camden EC1 into the warmest, fattest, and most characterful preamp in your studio. And it's all at the twist of a knob.
Mojo can be smooth and subtle, punchy and in-your-face, or completely out of the circuit. With the Cranborne Audio Camden EC1, the choice is yours. With the Mojo circuit bypassed, Camden EC1 is one of the cleanest, most linear, transparent, and natural-sounding preamps we've put to the test at Sweetwater. Featuring a custom transformer-less front-end topology with 68.5dB of gain, the Camden EC1 achieves amazing low-noise and low-distortion specs.It also raises the bar for frequency and phase linearity: ±0.7dB frequency response from 1Hz-1000kHz at 35dB gain and less than four degrees of phase shift (20Hz-20kHz, 63dB gain). The Camden EC1's tailored input impedance and headroom for Mic, Line, and hi-Z sources give you punchy, full-range line recording with +26.5dBu of input headroom, as well as vibrant, authentic-sounding DI instruments. Spec'd with Cranborne's innovative C. System, the EC1 does away with excess cable spaghetti, delivering a cost-effective, low-maintenance, plug-and-play solution by transmitting balanced analog audio over shielded Cat 5 Ethernet cable directly to/from a Cranborne 500R8 or a 500ADAT 500 Series rack.
