The Whirlwind MD-1 is a portable single channel microphone preamplifier with provisions for line level input and headphone output. The MD-1 features the studio-grade preamplifier found in the Whirlwind MIX-6 mixer. The front panel features a pad and level control that adjust for various mic and line level sources, providing up to 60dB of gain.
A 1/4" phone line level input is also available and enables line signal to be looped-thru and monitored via the 1/4" phone headphone output. The MD-1 provides +18V phantom power to condenser microphones. Two 9-volt batteries power the MD-1 and are housed in convenient slide-out trays for easy replacement. Whether amplifying boom pole mounted shotgun microphones, parabolic microphones or functioning as a headphone tap, the rugged yet light weight MD-1 is designed to withstand the demands of the professional field audio engineer.
