Focusrite announces the return of the Red Series mic preamp with the Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre, a module for the popular 'Lunchbox' format.

Featuring the same circuit topology and components, the Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre offers the performance of the original Focusrite Red microphone preamplifier in the popular 500-series format. It includes a Lundahl LL1538 input transformer, and a custom Carnhill output transformer, just as in the original design.

The Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre has switchable phantom power, polarity invert, and an easy-to-read illuminated VU meter, along with a stepped gain structure (with a Grayhill gold-plated military-grade switch) in 6dB steps ranging from -6 to +60dB.

Key Features:

  • A mono mic preamp that uses the same circuit design and components as the original Red mic pre - the Red 1 in the 500-series 'Lunchbox' format
  • The same Lundahl LL1538 input transformer and custom Carnhill output transformer as the original Focusrite Red 1 and Red 8 microphone preamps
  • Grayhill gold-plated military-grade gain switch
  • Gain range of 66dB 
  • Backlit VU meter with switchable calibration

 

The Focusrite Red 1 500 Series will ship worldwide in April at a $999.99 price. More details on global.focusrite.com.
