Daking Mic Pre4T 400pxTransAudio Group is pleased to announce the new Daking Mic Pre 4T. Building on the legendary British sound of the Daking Mic Pre One and Mic Pre II/T, the Mic Pre 4T adds four variable high-pass filters to four high-gain/high headroom Mic Pres in a single rack space unit. Each preamp channel offers the full complement of controls including 75dB of gain, +24dB of headroom, variable high-pass filter (from 10-200Hz), front-panel DI, 48V phantom power, phase invert and a 20dB pad along with a high-resolution 20-segment LED meter and +25dB indicator. The Daking Mic Pre 4T is a one-of-a-kind combination of soulful circuitry and proprietary problem-solving features.

The Daking Mic Pre 4T will elevate any recording offering unique solutions to common problems. The “low-distortion” Jensen input and output transformers offer more linear low-end performance under brutal dynamic conditions. Daking’s own variable high-pass filter dials out the low-frequency mud that can be subsonic and will decrease available headroom. Built in the USA, Daking uses only high-end parts like Jensen input and output transformers in a high-end design using all-discrete transistor Class A circuitry. Unusually high 24dB of headroom and easy to read twenty segment meters make proper gain staging easy and forgiving under a wider array of conditions.

Designed for the widest possible range of inputs, from vintage, low-gain ribbons, to high-gain modern condensers, and instruments via the DI. Avoiding clipping and distortion is critical for error free capture of that one magical performance that may never come again. Daking’s variable low pass filters make it possible to have a different low-filter setting on each of the four input channels, preventing unwanted over saturation of the transformer. The Instrument DI passes through the ultra linear Jensen output transformer for one of the best DI’s around. The Daking Mic Pre 4T is the one preamp that’s right for many different sources, rather than the costly “different preamps for different sources” approach.

MSRP: $2,999.00. Units are ready to ship. For product details visit: https://www.transaudiogroup.com/products/daking/daking-preamps/mic-pre-4t/.

Wait a minute! HOLD THE PHONES! A cassette with 8-tracks on it??? "The crosstalk must be outrageous," you might say. Or maybe your first reaction is simply: "No way -- it could never be good enough for production." Whatever your...
