A-Designs P-1 500 Series Mic Pre Module
The A-Designs P-1 500 Series Mic Pre Module has the highest fidelity of all the A-Designs Audio 500 preamps. It’s based on the company’s popular Pacifica preamp, and gives you exceptional sound quality with the classic vibe of some of the great vintage preamps. Featuring a DI, 48V phantom power, 20db pad, and phase buttons, and a gain control, the P-1 excels at adding just the right tonal “colour” to the input signal, and flatters any microphone. If you want to add a touch of vintage tone to your console, or just want to improve the range of your studio’s tonal capability, plug in the A Designs P-1 preamp module.
While not an exact replica, it sounds as close to Pacifica as is possible for its smaller size. It has a big low end, slightly forward midrange, and extended highs. If you’re a fan of Quad Eight or API, you’ll love the A-Designs Audio P-1.
The P-1 shines on vocals, instruments, room mics, piano, and on instruments with sharp transients, such as drums and various percussion instruments. And if you’re building a lunchbox with drum recording in mind, a pair of P-1s is a superb choice for overheads when you want to capture the entire kit along with the sizzle of the cymbals.
The main features of the A-Designs P-1 500 Series Mic Pre Module include:
- 48-volt phantom power
- 20dB pad
- Phase switch
- Custom-wound transformers
- Thumb screws for easy install and un-install
- Cast aluminum rotary gain control knob
