Product Description

The tone of the API 212L mic preamp finds its roots in the classic API 2488 series all-discrete recording consoles, best known for the famed "LA" sound. This same mic preamp design is packaged into a compact module with features like a continuously adjustable Gain control and a unique 5 segment LED VU meter on each panel.

An audio chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Often, emphasis is placed on obtaining the highest quality microphones, while neglecting the integrity of the mic preamp. The API 212L microphone pre-amplifier is an integral part of the famous Legacy Series Console and is now available for the L200 Rack System. This modular unit incorporates the same circuit as the legendary API 512b, thus preserving its sonic qualities. This mic pre articulates high frequencies with great detail, while delivering the big sounding, warm bottom end that API is famous for. Whether it's a live performance or the private setting of a studio session, the 212L will capture every nuance of the moment.
