Full set of Tierra's Flavour in-line microphone preamps including Truffle, Cocoa, Mint, Chilli, Vanilla, Pepper and Salt preamps
Tierra Audio Flavours Preamps are a collection of studio-quality microphone inline analog preamplifiers that will bring an extra dose of gain, texture and color to your vocals and instrument recordings, and live performances.
Thanks to the wide range of Flavours offered, you can enjoy different gain levels, from an enhanced and crystalline sound to different types and intensities of "sonic flavours" specially designed to bring a unique character, always without losing a drop of musicality. You will get warmer nuances and sounds, others sharper or hotter, others denser, others more saturated, others with more definition, more grain, or even more crunchy.
Simply plug in your favorite microphone and start singing or playing your instrument: You’ll be amazed at your "new sound!"
Like all Tierra products, the Flavours Preamps are handmade with tons of love in Madrid (Spain), with circuits and electronic components of the highest quality. They result from the joint effort of engineers, musicians, designers, and producers to provide a full range of "portable flavours" that will enrich and nuance the sound of your microphones.
They are ultra-compact and don’t need batteries or additional power cables, so you can use them comfortably not only at home or in the recording studio but also in the rehearsal room, in your live concerts, in your streaming and videoconference sessions, or working on your productions all over the city, or while traveling or on vacation.
Truffle features the most daring and exclusive sound in the Flavours Inline Mic Preamp series. It brings an abundant amount of saturation to the sound. From the beginning, you will hear a very evident but contained and musical distortion. Many of you will enjoy this new alternative for your voices, but also for your drums and percussions.
It’s not a flavour for everyone or with which to dress up all your recordings, but a pinch on the right voice or instrument will delight your audience.
Cocoa brings a thick, dense character to your sound, with less treble and with an interesting “de-esser” effect. It’s perfect for microphones used for podcasting, streaming and locutions. But, if you want to add a lot of colour in your music to your vocals, guitars, strings, drums… Cocoa will not leave you disappointed!
Mint offers a very fresh sound, rich in treble and with a slightly bright amplification. Perfect for enhancing your darker voices, instruments or microphones, such as the Shure SM7B and most ribbon microphones.
Chilli is Tierra's most wild flavour and, without a doubt, the crispy and sharpest. It's very suitable for vocals, because can bring an amazing energy and a lot of presence. Also, many acoustic guitarists, drummers and percussionists will want to carry one under their arm at all times.
Vanilla brings a more creamy and controlled sound that will delight all lovers of warm vocals. Also its very suitable for full-bodied choirs, and the recording of string instruments with a moderately thick sound, from guitars to violins, cellos, basses, and even ukuleles.
Pepper brings a very defined sound, with a pinch of compression, slightly spicy but without getting hard distortion at the highest levels of signal, as is the case with Chili, its big brother.
Its fast response to transients and its excellent level of gain will help you get a better sound in voices of many different pitches and achieve recordings of guitars and percussion instruments with a definition that will not leave you indifferent.
The compression effect it provides is perfect for live vocals in musical styles such as rock, and heavy, and its infinite variations.
When the flavour you already have in a dish is 100% what you are looking for, but you would like to enhance it, what do you use? A pinch of salt, exactly! Salt is Tierra's most neutral and transparent flavour, that is, without adding a speck of flavour, color, or distortion to your sound.
This preamp is perfect for use with your Shure SM7B microphone without adding color, or your favorite passive ribbon microphones, protecting them from the possible adverse effects of phantom power and preserving all the original nuances while amplifying the weak signal usually generated by this type of mics so that you have no noise at the input of your audio interface when trying to compensate for that low signal.
