Purple Audio PANTS is a four op-amp, differential mic preamp. Designed to work in standard “500″ racks.

The Pants uses a unique dual-bobbin input transformer from Cinemag unlike any other. The smooth Gain control helps you dial in the sound you want. If the output level is too high, you can ride the level down with the separate Level control. Pressing the “High” switch changes the feedback network to provide an insane 78dB of clean gain, a great match for very low output mics.

With different Gain, High mode switch, and Level settings the Pants can produce many different tones with the same amount of output level. The front panel DI goes through a FET buffer into the input transformer, adding an extra dimension to the sound of the preamp.

The DI load switch gives you two options, making it even easier to get the best direct tone for your instrument. Two LEDs clearly indicate signal level for the gain and output stages at a glance, turning green to indicate signal present, yellow for 10dB below clipping, and red for clipping. The Pants uses two KDJ3 opamps and two KDJ4

Un son dense et analogique

On a commandé ce préampli, il y a 1 mois. Ayant déjà 2 préamplis BIZ, je connais leur qualité. Mais cherchant des préamplis plus neutres que les BIZ qui ont une couleur et une présence très caractéristiques qu'on adore, et sur les conseils de Ramine, on est parti sur le BIZ pour l'enregistrement des instrments acoustiques. Il est parfait à l'utilisation et avec 78 dB de gain, on n'a aucun problème avec les micros à ruban. Le son est gros, plein et très dense. Tout simplement superbe pour des petits modules 500! Merci FPA :)

Black Box MM-1

Redefining what a preamp can do.
The Black Box Analog Design MM-1 Vacuum Tube Preamp is an entirely new approach to capturing audio. It is not based on any existing circuit but designed from the ground up, using the best parts and ignoring all of the standard ideas of how a preamp “should work”. The result is an incredibly versatile piece of gear that not only sounds amazing but shatters the idea of what a preamp can do!
