Half-rack mic preamp with ultra-high quality ADCs.
The Audient Mico is a compact, feature-packed twin mic preamp with built-in ultra-high quality ADCs, making it an ideal front-end for desktop users. The front-end design is Audient's renowned balanced discrete Class A design which is also used in the ASP008 and the ASP8024 mixing consoles, guaranteeing outstanding sonic transparency and detail.
Mico preamp also features one channel of the unique HMX harmonic sculpting technology from the Audient Black Pre making the creation of vintage-style character and complexity as simple as turning one knob. For recording a single source with twin mics or mic plus digital input, the Variphase control on Mico's second channel allows precise phase alignment (or creative mis-alignment) of the two signal paths.
Audient Company History
While British-based Audient is fairly new on the scene (1998), the company's founders have quite a respectable pedigree. Co-founder David Dearden has worked with David Manley (original owner of Manley Laboratories), Eddie Offord (Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Yes), and was involved in building a custom console and private studio for John Lennon for his Imagine sessions, followed by studios for George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Gus Dudgeon (producer, Elton John, David Bowie), and Chris Squire of Yes. After three years with MCI and two years with Soundcraft, David Dearden and Gareth Davies (also from Soundcraft) formed DDA (Dearden Davies Associates), a maker of high-quality analog consoles. When DDA became part of the Klark Teknik Group, he also designed the Midas XL200 live sound console and did the initial concept and design of the Midas H1000 console. In 1997 he rejoined with Gareth Davies to form Audient, whose products are typified by high performance, intelligent ergonomics, and transparent sound quality. Notable users of Audient gear include Pete Townshend's Eel Pie Studio, England's Royal Academy of Music, and Abbey Road Studios.
