Universal Audio 2-610
The Universal Audio 2-610 is a dual channel mic preamp. It is an analog based unit and is rackable - it will take up two rack spaces. It has a built in 1/4 inch input in the front for direct input use and it also has XLR connectors in the back. It also has built in EQ for each channel.


The configuration of the preamp is easy to follow, even though there are a few different things going on in each channel. On each of the preamps you have a gain knob, a switch to choose between mic, line, or hi-z input, a leveling knob and two preset EQ knobs, with the ability to add gain or attenuate six different frequencies. It also has a phaser switch. The manual is pretty complete, but this should be easy enough to set up and use that most won't need to use it.


The sound quality of this the Universal Audio 2-610 is clean and has a full body sound to it. It won't color your sound and will portray an accurate sound from your microphones. It is easy to get a quick good sound from this, and you can further shape your sound with EQ that has smart frequency choices and is clean as well. The 2-610 contains two high quality preamps, and is definitley backed up by the sound.


I've been using the Universal Audio 2-610 mic preamp for about a year. It is always great to have a dual channel external mic preamp that will give you a different sound than that of your board or audio interface. Universal Audio is one of the best when it comes to making outboard preamplifiers and compressor and the 2-610 fits right in with that. Since these are top notch in terms of how well they are built, it isn't the cheapest set of preamps on the market. This being said, for the professional that is looking for top quality, this is probably worth the price. The Universal Audio 2-610 is a pair of great sounding preamps with a lot of versatility to them.

Universal Audio 2-610
Pramp analog lamps, 2 channels.
XLR connection between high + impdance to connect a live instrument
Low Shelf EQ High Shelf with 3 + frquences charnires selectable per band.


Config trs simple. It RULES gain of (5 notched positions) according to the solicitation of lamps that DSIR and adjust the output level accordingly.


His remarkable typ lamp. Simple circuit trs, trs so little noise. In my opinion we should not expect miracles from the pseudo EQ but can s'avrer useful extra if needed. Otherwise, flat is good trs.


I use it for 5 years on vocal, drums (overhead), bass, but it made for electric guitar that I prfre systmatiquement and uses. Lack may be a bit low.

I also use a Focusrite ISA428 Analog / transistor. Although it is more prcis sr prcis the UA 2-612, but everyone does his job perfectly.

I would do without the choice problem. I would add a good compressor UREI 1176 on the buttocks, or the equivalent AU stro.

Report qualitprix right to me.

Universal Audio 2-610
Double lamp DI preamp
2 shelves with lo and hi frequency Crantbr />
Microphone input and Line 4 Di

Switching the front by switch selection practice, as any cable can be retracted and the rear of the stuff on the front easily before attacking a chian Processing ... not even need a patch very top!


First we give the source with its output impedance, but says AU kom "If it sounds good well c"
no need to delve into the specifications of your device but if have done vs a + c

Then there is the gain and output level are two different knob

if you push the gain and it is colored + down on the output level
if you want less color gain is reduced
but watch c still far from being transparent even kan, I did not find difference flagrente.
not cutting down damage

the shelves are 50 100 and 200 for bass and 4.5 7 and 10 for acute


The shelves are not bad but drink responsibly.

This preamp colors especially mediums, medium and low.

the bass is shallower than Avalon and Cristalle less acute but are not aggressive ...

microphone position: I tried several micro: the verdict is his best friend U87
TLM 103 bocou even if I like this mic, do not marry because of his well-trs acute and C414 is not bad because the premp gives him a boost in the medium and more serious

Online + 4 I find the use is a barely perceptible c mieu byzarre it is output jack and attack by the DI input

on the other hand in DI, ca color cow: electric guitar crunch or distortion c very well, (such pedalier ...)
bass and acoustic guitar through
synthetic bass synth pad anlague c monster
rnb big lead, organ a little dirty it rocks

chord piano bof
Snare well
mix battery is not bad but vintage c
mix in gnral must try ... but I avoid gnral

in fact all the stuff elctro, recent pass in color and ca c terrible
all acoustic instrumentals, c how I feel after subjective c

this is not the preamp goes everywhere but on the fact c ca top


1 year
bin kan ca c does well
let's say I took time to find the right microphone to go with him and me! since I told him al a U87 I like it
I tried a 737 VP at Avalon, and the U87 sounds not in it !!!!! by against the TLM 103 is superb with, as the microphone is what 50% of its other Moitiers c which gives the preamp!

however ca'll be nice to have the two colors because the AU bocou and has a very vintage with medium and low mids very marqubr />
G long used a classic valve TL Audio C1 ke I thought too transparent but when I made my recoute I just marrone!

before finding the right microphone gt not super happy but cost me ca 1800 e opportunities for a U87 and since it's going bocoup mieu ... !

I do not know if I do it again this choice today because there are so many products, but double the price of preamp and it sounds like I have not found.

can be of the Drawmer 1960 (g I love the 1961!) but what I listen c its not the same at all

TUB g TECh not try any but it does not fawn DI
Avalon does not fit any

So I keep my UA:!

2 mono tube preamp ...


30000 There's no options: one connects everything and we try .... and the big sound coming very soon!

comes with a DVD but in English!

but there's really no need to delve into the record ... it's simple and effective ...


I love this preamp, its been 7 months that I use and spend everything in! tlm 103 coupled with a voice and take all their warmth and breadth!

I use it even for my pass mix (not all but most!) instead of one bouncer repassse everything in!


I use it for 7 months.

what I like most is its simplicity and warmth!

what I like least is ... well I love it!

yes I had a Joemeek (one Q) then I tried the Avalon ..

Although sour c 2000 euros not cheap but it is well worth it!!

no problem ... I sell mine since I shut down the studio to the stage but I will take it for registration!
