A-Designs P-1 - 500 Series Microphone Preamp
The A-Designs Audio 500 microphone preamp series is comprised of five different 500 series-compatible mic/line pres, each one meticulously voiced with specific sonic functionality in mind. The P-1 has the highest fidelity of all the A-Designs Audio 500 preamps, capturing the mojo of its older and larger sibling, the extremely popular Pacifica. It has a big low end, slightly forward midrange and extended highs. The P-1 shines on vocals, instruments, room mics, piano, and on instruments with sharp transients such as drums and various percussion instruments. If you’re building a 500-series unit with drum recording in mind, a pair of P-1s is a superb choice for overheads when you want to capture the entire kit - especially the sizzle of the cymbals.
