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

The Daking Mic Pre One is a free-standing single-channel preamplifier that uses the same circuitry found in Daking’s 4-channel Mic-Pre IV, a favorite among top producers and engineers such as Butch Vig (Nirvana, Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins), David Pensado (Mary J Blige, Beyonce, Brian McKnight), and both Chris and Tom Lord-Alge (who haven’t they mixed?). Built in the tradition of the great console manufacturers such as Neve and API, Daking preamps feature bulletproof construction and marvelous sound, reminiscent of the coveted classic pres. While sharing the gain structure and Class A, fully discrete transistor circuitry design of the popular Daking Mic Pre IV, the Mic Pre One adds a unique variable high-pass filter and comes in a freestanding ‘DI-style’ steel enclosure, ensuring both durability and immunity from noise. Mic Pre One features switchable phase, 20dB mic input pad and +48V phantom power, plus a selectable 1/4″ front panel Hi-Z instrument input, all utilizing relays with gold bi-furcated contacts. Two large knurled aluminum knobs control the variable high-pass filter (0-200Hz) and continuously variable input gain between 25dB and 70dB. A 20-seClass A amplifier, all-discrete solid state design Jensen transformer-isolated mic input Variable high-pass filter (0-200Hz) 20dB pad Inputs for mic, line, and instrument-level signals Front-panel Hi-Z instrument input Phase reversal switch +48V phantom power Full-width 20-segment, bi-color LED meter Balanced XLR output and 1/4″ line output External power supply for noise-free operation and longer component live Rohs Compliant
