[Musikmesse] Fidelice Quad Pre
The Fidelice Quad Pre includes 0 to 72dB of gain in dB steps, phase reverse, 48V phantom power, a variable HPF, 10 point LED metering and the new multi-position silk control.
Unlike the previous Silk mode found in the Portico Series mic pre’s, the updated Silk control features four distinct settings to provide varying degrees of warmth and presence. Channels 1 & 2 may also be used as an M-S input, or summed with channels 3 & 4(1+3, 2+4) by using the M / S, Sum switch, according to Rupert Neve.
In addition to a mic pre, each channel of the Fidelis quad pre is equipped with a front mounted DI with variable gain. Once in DI mode, the silk control alters the voicing and input impedance according to which of the four modes is selected.
Multiple Remote Control Options
Every control parameter on the Quad Pre, has a dedicated knob or switch, to ensure ease of use when the operated manually. To allow for seamless transitions from remote to manual operation, each knob has LEDs that indicate turn direction when knobs don’t match stored settings, and the control reverts to manual as soon as the knob passes over the stored setting.
The Fidelis Quad Pre features Rupert Neve Designsdigital conversion technology.
