Transistor preamp XLR / Line / SPDIF 48v ...


Extremely simple to use, clear manual. Possibly concerned about the lack blank copy settings for leaf arrangement; nevertheless slipped into a jpeg file in question will do.


This preamp is just transparent: The sound is true, although dynamic and absolute clarity. I use a Neumann U87 and a FLEA 47 for vocals. Using the limiter device, you can optimize the gain without clipping. HDV setting adds harmonics but remains wary of such destructive adjustment setting; I prefer color afterwards if it is useful. For the EQ on Same voice: I prefer equalize voice with Alpha Channel as a plug-in return SPDIF in / out flat after a decision. For those familiar with SSL, the EQ is true to the brand reputation: it works on many things, it's more accurate, it does not stain.


I use it for 4 years. This is a rugged unsurprisingly, very professional. I also used to catch bass and guitar and it is also here that the Alpha Channel excels .. This is a very good investment for those who want to make home made clean.
