The UltraMic Plus™ padless mic preamp provides up to +28dBu capability with the input sensitivity control operating between +6dB and -60dB on Mic and Line inputs.
180° Phase Reverse switch
This switch reverses the polarity of the input to compensate for signal phase differences.
Connector Bay (behind meterbridge)
Both Mic and Line inputs are balanced with +48V phantom power available individually per channel for condenser mics. Direct Out is factory set postfader/post-EQ, but can be set to prefader, pre/post EQ. The insert point is pre-fader, pre-EQ but post HPF.
The 4 band equaliser section has two swept mids for extra control during live performances. All bands provide 15dB of cut or boost.The HF shelving filter operates above 13kHz. The Hi Mid control operates between 550Hz and 13kHz with Lo Mid operating between 80Hz and 1.9kHz.
The LF shelving filter operates below 80Hz.
EQ In/Out Switch
Selecting the EQ allows comparison of treated and untreated sounds.
High Pass Filter
A 100Hz/18dB/octave High Pass Filter is set pre-EQ to ‘clean up’ low frequencies.
6 Auxiliary Sends allow the choice of either monitor or effects-orientated mixes. Auxes 1 and 2 are pre-fader, post-EQ for monitor mixes. Auxes 3 and 4 are normally post-fader, post-EQ but are individually globally switchable to pre-fader, post-EQ from the master section. Auxes 5 and 6 are post-fader, post-EQ. The pre- or post-EQ parameters on Auxes 1, 2, 3 and 4 are all easily resettable via internal jumpers for custom configurations.
Each input channel can be routed to mix and/or any of the 8 groups in pairs.
All pre- and post-fade outputs are muted on the channel when the mute switch is pressed. Alternatively, the channel can be assigned to one of the 4 mute busses for scene setting.
Each channel can be soloed pre-fader, post-EQ to check gain levels. The PFL LED also doubles as a PEAK indicator.
Custom-built 100mm long throw linear faders provide 10dB of extra gain above “zero”.
