The Auteur MKII is a two channel preamp that features high-speed input stages that capture lots of detail and nuance, and transformer-coupled output stages that impart a nice touch of vintage vibe. It also features phantom power, phase, and a 10dB pad. It’s housed in a 1U, ½ rack chassis, and can be linked together with a second ½ rack unit by using the included connector plate.
The Auteur MKII has a revamped gain stage that results in higher gain, lower noise, lower distortion, and a more extended frequency response than the original design. Use it on drums for rotund results. Throw it on vocals for a silky polish. Hear guitars soar like never before. No matter what you use it on, the Auteur MKII will do the job like a pro!
POWER: flip switch up to turn preamp on, flip switch down to turn preamp off
48V: engage to turn phantom power on, disengage to turn phantom power off
GAIN: clockwise rotation yields an increase in output signal amplitude, counterclockwise rotation yields a decrease in output signal amplitude
PHASE (Ø): engage to adjust input signal polarity by 180°, disengage to leave input signal polarity unchanged
PAD: engage to reduce input signal amplitude by 10dBu, disengage to leave input signal amplitude unchanged
Well, where would you get 4 channels of mic pre in 1HU of 19″ for net 900€?
These guys sound surprisingly powerful and round, with extremely tight end, not overly bright, I find them like made for additional drum mics, such as toms, romm mics, the given FX 57 between SN and BD, or BD distant mic, several others come to mind.
Great and extremely affordable choice to complement your drums recoding setup.
Add to these 2 Sunsets for BD in and SN out, plus for instance 2 Tonelux MP5a’s for Overheads and you got yourself a killer drum recording setup at unbeatable price.
