MP568C | Low Noise Studio Grade Reference Mic Preamp

The MP568C is the Studio Grade ultra low noise Microphone Preamplifier with Instrument Input and 2 Colour Slots.

The MP568C is a perfect choice for demanding professional recording applications. The circuitry is based on high performance BURR-BROWN components which can be found only in the most expensive studio recording equipment.  

Discrete Direct Input is suitable for wide range of instruments such as acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, synths and any other signal source.

The MP568C Active Infinity Impedance Direct Input is ideal for acoustic instruments like Double-bass, usually equipped with piezo pickups. No more thin sound! Low end will be reproduced down to lowest note!

The input stage will easily handle high level input signals. Thanks to this MP568C can be used to process line level signal with Colour Modules without the input PAD.

The logarithmic Gain control allows to accurately set the signal level fed to Colours or to record from the microphone with selected Colour Module.

Addition of Colour Modules increases the flexibility of the MP568C. Simply insert your favourite Colour Module and transform the MP568C in to fully functional Vintage Mic Preamp!

Suitable for Processing The Line Level Signals

The MP568C can easily handle the Line Level Signals!

Simply reduce the level from the source such as DAW Interface by -12dB or more and use the Mic Input as the Line Input.

The PAD function in any Mic Preamp is a simple resistor divider which will increase the noise flor level.

It was used in old recording equipment due to the lack of better technical solution.

In modern studio almost any interface has the output level knob which can be used to reduce the output level. Same can be done in any sound editing software.

2 Slots for Colour Modules | 2 Times More Creativity!

The MP568C has 2 slots for Colour Modules.

Perfect solution for recording vocals and instruments. Two slots can hold different Colour Modules which could be used to record different source without a need of replacing the colour for each take.

Both Colour Modules have separate Bypass switches providing hassle-free operation.

MP568 can also be very useful for post-processing. Ability to have 2 Colour Modules gives more flexibility for Recording and Tracking.

Each Colour Module has associated HUE LED providing easy identification of active Colour Modules.
