A-Designs EM-Gold overview

  • 1Description

The EM-Gold 500 Series Microphone Preamp from A-Designs is one of the company's five 500 series-compatible mic/line preamps, each one voiced for a specific sonic functionality by using different alloys for the windings on their custom-wound transformers to create a particular tonal character.

The EM-Gold uses a combination of the custom-wound input and output transformers which are used in the EM-Red and EM-Silver modules. The resulting tonal qualities of the EM-Gold make it ideal for fattening up thin-sounding sources, such as on mics and instruments lacking low midrange and upper-bass warmth. It can be used to strengthen the sound of drums and percussion, guitars, as well as vocals, and can be used in applications for live stage, recording studios, theater, broadcast environments, and more.

The module is built with a 1/4" mic/line input and has 48V phantom power with an LED to indicate when it is active. A phase button and dB pad are also located on the front panel, along with a large gain control knob.

With five distinctive modules to choose from, the EM 500 series platform makes it possible to construct your own custom signal-processing array. The EM-Gold 500 Series Microphone Preamp is compatible with any API or VPR Alliance mounting device, and also meets the precise power rating requirements necessary to function from the moment you plug it in. The hardware rack is sold separately.
