Universal Audio DCS Remote Preamp – No Longer Available

Universal Audio DCS Remote Preamp

Product Description

Universal Audio has partnered with original Euphonix founders Scott and Rob Silfvast to design a revolutionary series of DAW “expansion & amp; enhancement” products under the Desktop Console System (DCS) family brand. DCS combines UA’s pedigree for sonic excellence with the usability/features of professional consoles in a new type of convenient “micro-console” desktop form factor, ideal for today’s project/producer studios. The first two products in the DCS series (the Remote Pre & amp; Monitor Master) combine a base station with a DCS-Link™ connected remote that puts every control within direct proximity to the user in a convenient remote format.

The DCS Remote Preamp combines two console-grade mic-pres, specialized monitoring capabilities for artist & engineer, and easy remote control/DAW integration making an ideal upgrade to the basic features/sonics found in most audio interfaces. With 100% digital control of analog, the Remote Preamp offers fully remote-controllable, highly detailed, uncolored recording based on its advanced transimpedance design. The two channels of the DCS Remote Preamp can be used dual mono or can be joined for stepped, matched-stereo gain structuring. Plus a Mid/Side encoder is included, allowing for direct recording of the MS-Stereo result.

The Remote Pre also features a high-quality headphone amp with “monitoring only” effects such as user-tailored reverb and EQ, making it easy to quickly create an artist monitor mix without having to deal with complex configuration or latency issues inside the DAW. Best of all, the remote control can be placed anywhere from desktop to recording room, giving the artist flexibility unlike any other device in its class. Position the preamp as close to the source as desired, or remotely control your own recording experience away from the computer as you keep the remote close at hand. Lastly, the DCS Remote Preamp offers high quality backlit VU metering for observing Preamp Output or DAW/Cue levels.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

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.
