Universal Audio 4-710d Compressor

Four-channels of tone-blending Twin-Finity preamps and 1176-style compression w/ built-In A/D converters
MFR# 4710D

Product Description

The Universal Audio 4-710d is a boutique quality, four-channel microphone/line preamplifier with unique tube and solid-state tone blending capabilities — perfect for a wide range of microphone and instrument sources. This versatile multi-channel preamp offers selectable 1176-style compression circuitry on each channel, plus four additional line inputs feeding eight channels of pristine analog-to-digital conversion. Building upon UA’s classic analog design approach, combined with smart modern features, the 4-710d is the most flexible preamp in the UA lineup.

At the core of the 4-710d are four channels of tone-blending “Twin-Finity” mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression, including specially tuned "fast" and "slow" settings. Each of the four mic preamp channels allows for continuously variable phase-aligned tone, between a 100% tube and 100% solid-state signal path. Send and return jacks are available for external processing or signal access.

The eight analog inputs are digitized via ultra high-quality 24-bit A/D converters at selectable sample rates up to 192 kHz. Digital output is available via dual ADAT “lightpipe” or AES/EBU DB-25 connectors, facilitating integration with most popular audio interfaces.

  • Four TEC Award-winning 710 Twin-Finity™ microphone/line preamps
  • Dual-path 285-volt Class-A tube and transimpedance solid-state preamps

I had been wanting the 4-710d for a long time, did a lot of research and when I finally had enough saved up, was happy to get it.
A couple of the things that was mostly wondering about was the tone when adding more of the tube and how the compression sounds. So from my first experience with it, the tube tone adds a really great authentic warm breakup that is hard to reproduce through any plugin. The tone is similar to what you might hear on the vocals for No Dream by Jeff Rosenstock. But if you need to record something super clean, when you’re recording something that you don’t want any color added, just dial back the knob.
The compression was also everything I wanted. There’s enough range between the slow and fast options that you can hear the difference but it’s not soo far away that you wish you had more control. Which the control was what I was concerned about not having, but UA really nailed it down.
All and all, it’s a really solid piece of equipment to have and when I pay this one off, I’ll probably try to get another so I can replace some of my other mic pres and low end compressors.
Another thing I do want to mention is that Vintage King has been great to work with, I’m near a wearhouse so the option to pick it up same day as opposed to having it shipped was a huge bonus for me.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
