The MPC-1OOA from Summit Audio is a single channel, tube preamplifier and tube compressor/limiter featuring 3 input types - microphone, line level and front panel Hi-Z input. By utilizing both tube and solid state technology, and working in synch with the Jensen microphone input transformer, the unit is able to deliver detailed sound with varying amounts of harmonically complex, yet pleasing overtones.

The 3 position ultra-fast attack of the compressor section yields highly optimized signals for working in the digital domain. The Hi-Z input features an impedance matching (load) control so that passive guitars and bass pickups have a wide level of tone control. Three separate gain sections deliver endless tonal variations, from clean to saturated, while true VU metering and multiple outputs provide accurate visual feedback and comprehensive connectivity.

Single channel, tube/solid state hybrid microphone preamp with microphone, line and front-panel Hi-Z inputs
Completely variable input and output allows for driving the tubes as hard or as lightly as desired, providing tones that vary from crystal clear and open, to full tube saturation, and any tone in between
Compressor/limiter has very fast attack times, making it ideal for optimizing signal prior to entering the digital domain
3 position "smart" attack and release switches
Compressor stereo linkable to another MPC-100A or TLA-100A
Hi-Z instrument DI with impedance matching control for endless tonal variations
+4dB balanced and -10dB unbalanced outputs, usable simultaneously
Tube drive indicators
High-quality, true VU meter
Universal internal power supply
Hand-crafted in the USA
