Daking Mic Pre One 500: Geoff Daking, a designer of audio gear in the tradition of the greats; Neve, API, and Trident, has turned his considerable expertise on both sides of the control-room glass into a premier line of preamps, compressors, and custom consoles used by engineers and producers the likes of Joe Chiccarelli and Butch Vig. His latest creation is the Mic Pre One 500, a modular 500-series* preamp based on his popular Mic Pre One. The Mic Pre One 500 features switchable phase, 20dB mic input pad, +48V phantom power, and a selectable 1/4″ line/Hi-Z instrument input.Like the Mic-Pre One, the Mic Pre 500 shares the gain structure and Class A, fully-discrete transistor circuitry design of Daking’s popular Mic Pre IV. The front panel controls include a variable high-pass filter (with a range of 10-200Hz @ 12db per octave) as well as continuously variable input gain. It also includes an eight-segment tri-color LED meter with simultaneous VU and Peak. In addition, because the home recordist faces challenges that the professional studio owner does not, the Mic-Pre One 500 features a powerful continuously variable high-pass filter with a range of 10-200Hz @ 12db per octaveThe Mic Pre One 500 gives you both the punchy and exciting sound of its prime inspiration, the Trident A Range console (considered to be the best sounding console for rock by Daking himself, and numerous platinum producers), and the convenience of a 500-series module, which gives you the ability to add more great Daking channels as your budget allows.*Note: In order to operate, 500-series units require a VPR**-compliant power suppy, or “lunchbox” such as the Radial Workhorse (#H74107), A Designs Audio 500HR Rackmount Frame (#241582), or Empirical Labs EL 500 (#H72812).** What is the VPR Alliance?Initiated by API Audio, the VPR Alliance is a program of standardization and consistency guidelines for manufacturers wishing to make product70dB gain8-segment, tri-color meter with VU and peak indicationsSwitchable polarity20dB pad with constant reflected impedanceSwitchable +48V phantom powerDirect 1/4″ instrument input on the front panel
