Arturia V76-Pre - Electronic Delivery

Plug-in recreation the V76 tube preamp - the sound that defined 60s pop music
MFR# 1090-56

Product Description

Loved by the engineers and technicians at Abbey Road, and incorporated into their iconic REDD mixing consoles, the V76 coveted for that “White Album” sound, every major studio in the world wanted a piece of the action, and tens of thousands of Telefunken preamps were created to meet the demand. These days, due to scarcity and cost, it’s practically impossible for most musicians and producers to pick up one of these legendary preamps. In the same way Arturia built its reputation on recreating legendary, rare synths and keyboards through advanced modeling, they have decided to use their TAE technology to give everyone the chance to experience that legendary V76 sound with the Arturia V76-Pre. By studying its sound and design, right down to the subtleties of each electronic component, they have created a virtual preamp that brings quintessential vintage tone to a whole new generation of musicians.

Vintage sound with today’s technology

Simply put, preamps were originally created to make signals louder. They would take a low-powered audio signal - from a microphone or instrument, for example - and amplify them so that they were the strong enough for mixing, while minimizing any added noise. North West German Radio were early pioneers of this technology, creating high quality preamps for broadcasting. Enhancing NWGR’s design, Telefunken produced the V72, which later evolved into the studio-focused V76, and became a staple in studios around the world.

Fast forward 70 years, and the pro audio industry has changed a little. Superbly transparent, low noise, affordable preamps are included in almost every audio interface. However, the subtle tonal shift that vintage preamps gave to the audio they treated, especially vacuum-tube designs like the V76, are missing today.

Arturia wanted to give you the best of both worlds: the ability to color the sound of your modern recorded audio and virtual instruments with the iconic tone of classic studio gear.

Cracking the code

Pro audio equipment doesn’t become legendary without a story to tell. To say the legacy of the Telefunken V series preamp is huge would be an understatement. Its rich tone and huge creative potential made it an integral part of Abbey Road’s setup at arguably the most pivotal point in their history. Despite being known as the go-to microphone preamp for radio broadcast and studio use, and first-choice mastering amplifier, working V76 units are hard to come by. Fortunately for us, Arturia were able to start and end our quest for ultimate tube-tone in France.

At Question De Son, a highly-esteemed recording studio in Paris’ 10th arrondissement, Arturia were able to study an original, sequential pair of V76/80 preamps. Models 4754 had 4755 have been in active service for 70 years, and made the perfect subjects for our study.

They didn’t just want to create a carbon copy, but rather give you the best elements of Telefunken’s sonic signature. For example, made the gain controls continuous for more precise control, removed the seldom-used “broadcast utility” 3 kHz low-pass switch, and refined the boost and cut range of the V612 EQ, giving you studio tools that are more usable for the modern musician.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of Arturia’s research, modeling, and development teams, you too can include the tone of the fabled V76 preamp and V612 equalizer into your DAW setup.
