Description

The Radial PowerPre is a high performance microphone preamplifier designed to be used with the Radial Workhorse and other 500 series modular racks. It features 100% discrete components to deliver up to 70dB of gain and employs a ‘vintage’ Hammond broadcast output transformer for warmth and exceptionally smooth tone.

  • Hand selected 100% discrete electronics
  • Hammond broadcast transformer output
  • AccuState™ low-noise input circuit
  • 3-position Vox control for added air or punch

The design begins with a front mounted XLR for instant connectivity plus a recessed 48V phantom power switch for safety. Unlike most mic preamps that require careful gain adjustment to avoid troublesome noise, the Power Pre is equipped with the newly developed AccuState™ input stage that automatically optimizes signal-to-noise at all levels and is supported with a full 10 segment LED for accurate signal monitoring..

To add extra character; a 3-position Vox control lets you set the PowerPre to ‘breath’ for added high frequency air such as when accentuating a vocal track or adding harmonic content to an acoustic guitar. The ‘punch’ setting adds body when recording electric guitar or can be used to fatten a voice. When set to linear, the PowerPre delivers a truly natural rendering for orchestral recording that will suit the requirements of the most demanding purist. This is augmented with a gentle high-pass filter that helps control low end resonance when layering instruments.

Ultra quiet, low noise and an exceptionally warm sounding… The PowerPre makes spectacular audio easy.
