This is a pitit tube preamp with XLR connectors and jacks. Pitit this box, we find a big potentiometer "GAIN", used for controlling amplification of the signal at the entrance. It ranges from 26-60 dB.
Then an LED display for setting the level, an LED Power recalling that the MIC100 is on. 20 dB over a touch pad is an attenuator to reduce the signal level (to remove a troublesome distortion).
A switch that activates +48 V phantom power to XLR (phantom power is required to operate condenser microphones).
PHASE REVERSE switch used to rotate the phase of the input signal 180 degrees. The phase inverter is useful for both mic and line signals. When using multiple microphones and cancellations in certain frequencies, enable the phase inverter.
A key limiter (to avoid!)
A OUTPUT control to adjust the output level of the MIC100 between -00 and +10 dB. When fully counterclockwise, no signal comes out of the MIC100. The more you turn the knob to the right, the higher the output level is important.
(Here, I have copied the user manual)

UTILIZATION

It is very easy to setup and the manual is well presented, which allows not to Gour.

SOUND QUALITY

I use it now to my bass. I and the branch: the bass output jack to the input jack of the MIC100. The MIC100 is connected by an output jack to a small mixer. This mixer when it is connected to my sound card with a RCA / mini-jack. This helps raise the level of my bassounette delivering a big sound very clean and very hot, what Cakewalk Sonar 2.0 XL appreciated. I have no breath and a very pretty color due to the lamp.

OVERALL OPINION

This is still a gift (Christmas 2003), for the moment, I only use it for my bass. I would to tell you what happens with my microphone singing. It is very useful, however you must disconnect the power connector to turn it off, which is boring but good. I would reiterate that choice, it is safe.
