Microphone Preamplifier

Microphone Preamplifier

The PowerPre™ is a high performance microphone preamplifier designed for use with any 500 series modular rack, featuring 100% discrete components for optimal signal transfer and a Hammond output transformer for a smooth and warm tone.

  • Hand selected 100% discrete electronics
  • Hammond broadcast transformer output
  • AccuState low-noise input circuit
  • 3-position Vox control for added air or punch

Quiet operation with added character

The PowerPre is designed for clean low-noise operation, with an AccuState input stage what automatically optimizes signal-to-noise at all levels with up to 55dB of gain available. A Hammond broadcast transformer on the output provides vintage warmth and a classic smooth tone, and a Vox switch allows you to add extra character to the signal: The Breath setting adds high frequency air that can accentuate a vocal track or add harmonic content to an acoustic guitar, while the Punch setting adds body when recording electric guitar or it can be used to fatten up bass tracks.

PowerPre Applications

The Basic Setup

The PowerPre fits any 500 series rack. In its most basic setup, you connect a mic to the PowerPre and send the XLR out to the recording system. Single dial control makes recording easy and efficient.

The Mic Channel

Use the PowerPre as the front end to drive an EQ and compressor to create the ultimate channel strip. Simple cascade one module into the next and send the final output to your recorder.

Tracking Instruments

The PowerPre is not just for mics! If you have a Workhorse, you can also use it as the front end when recording instruments or tracking a bass direct. Simply plug into the Omniport and you are set to go.
