Big Bear Audio MP1+ overview

  • 1Description

The Big Bear Audio MP1+ is a low-noise, discrete Class-A microphone preamplifier with high-impedance, discrete instrument input for 500 Series racks. It features a Colour slot that lets you interchange a wide variety of DIYRE modular cards (available separately) to impart various types of analog coloring to your sound.

The MP1+ combines a discrete, electronically balanced mic/line input with a Lundahl output transformer and an Elma stepped attenuator. It provides up to 60 dB of gain with a frequency response of 20 Hz to 50 kHz and can be used as a studio reference amplifier.

The unit includes a Discrete Saturator card designed to add the saturation characteristics of a vintage console to your sound.
