The Rane MS 1b microphone preamplifier provides the solution for when a single microphone input is needed in an otherwise line-level world. The unit provides +48V switchable phantom power with indicator LED for use with condenser microphones, but can be used with any type of microphone, either a dynamic or electret microphone.
The MS 1b has continuous rotary gain trim between 18dB and 66dB, signal/overload LED, and XLR balanced input & output connectors.
Housed in a rugged small enclosure, the MS 1b utilizes an ultra low noise amplifier design, featuring a true differential input with high common-mode rejection. A polarity switch and high-current cross-coupled output line driver round out the features.
- Ultra low-noise design
- True differential input
- Cross-coupled line driver
- Signal and overload indicators
- Polarity switch
