Single-channel high-end mic pre with world-class EQ inspired by the Trident A Range.
Geoff Daking's famous "A Range"-inspired EQ has four individual EQ bands and five stepped frequencies per band with frequencies specially chosen for effective results. This is thought to be some of the best EQ available for tracking, mixing or mastering. It features continuously variable EQ boost or cut of 15dB; 25Hz High Pass 6 db/octave filter for getting rid of the low-end rumble that ruins tracks; and a 12dB per octave low-pass filter at 15kHz, which helps get rid of extreme top end edginess. Separate overall output level control makes up gain lost in extensive EQ cuts. Built to last and provide top-notch performance, all relay switching features gold bifurcated contacts for long life and steel construction for strength and noise immunity. An outboard in-line universal power supply provides remote power in order to keep the noise floor low.
Truly astounding in its ability to reveal vocal detail and character when used with a large-diaphragm condenser, the Mic-Pre/EQ also provides exceptional clarity while maintaining warmth. It imparts a beautiful high-end sheen with none of the harshness associated with certain modern designs. It has all the character of the classic preamps on which it is based, but without the unreliable behavior, plus more richness, detail, and sparkle.
Notable users of Daking preamps and compressors: Includes Grammy winners Joe Chicarelli (Tori Amos, Counting Crows, U2) and Ted Perlman (Chicago, Bob Dylan, Elton John), Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage) Steve Albini (Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Cheap Trick), Russ Long (Wilco, Dolly Parton, Sixpence None the Richer), and master mixers Chris and Tom Lord-Alge (everybody else from James Brown to the Rolling Stones).
