PRE-Q1A Cartec is a dual mic preamp, high quality transformers using input / output and incorporates an equalizer passive inductor, an attenuator and a summing symmetrical mono 2 channel with its own output XLR.
Selector "LINE" lets you use the PRE-Q1A also for tracking and mixing. You can use the equalizer and the potential saturation of transformer output signals enrichier already registered.
The equalizer, which allows the amplification in the bass and treble center frequencies selectable from 3 operates on a principle totally identical to the EQP-1A (Pultec type).
The output attenuator notched (type T-pad constant impedance) can saturate the machine while controlling the output level. This can actually play the harmonics without the next unit in the chain do not suffer (converter, for example). An auxiliary output can be used for the 2 channels addtionner (mixture of 2 microphones or guitars snare mics - above and below - in mono, for example) or to send one channel to another processor. This auxiliary output operates at the same time as the individual outputs 2 channels.

not need manual for when buying this kind of machine is that you normally can read directly on the bug
