MESSE10: 4-Channel Mic Pre With Dynamics


Universal Audio has announced a new addition to its line of premium analog recording hardware: the 4-710D Four-Channel "Twin-finity" Mic Preamp & DI with Dynamics. They tell us that, as the newest member of UA's popular analog product lineup, the 4-710D combines UA's classic design approach with several modern innovations -- creating a unique studio device suited to a wide range of applications. Here's the rest of what UA has to say...
At the core of the 4-710D are four channels of tone-blending "Twin-finity" mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression. Based on the original award-winning 710 Twin-Finity preamp -- favored by engineers including Al Schmitt (Jackson Browne, Dr. John, Diana Krall) and Matt Boudreau (The Samples, Sean O'Brien) -- each of the four mic preamp channels allows for continuously variable tone between 100% tube and 100% solid-state.
Other notable 4-710D features include:
  • Newly designed 1176-style compression/soft-limiting circuit per mic channel
  • Eight channels of high-quality 24-Bit, 192kHz A/D conversion
  • Digital output via dual ADAT optical or AES/EBU DB-25
  • Monolithic balanced output stage
  • Balanced send/return inserts
"While UA enjoys a reputation for classic hand-built analog equipment, we're not content to live in the past," commented Universal Audio President Matt Ward. "The 4-710D is another example of us pushing forward, giving customers modern conveniences like high-quality digital outputs, and the ability to blend between tube and solid state tones -- a feature not available anywhere else."
"The 4-710D is the result of several Universal Audio technologies converging into a great product,"
offered 4-710D Product Manager, Lev Perrey. "Ultimately, the 4-710D is a fantastic addition to any mic preamp arsenal, and we believe customers will be amazed by its awesome balance of classic tone and flexibility."
Pricing and Availability:
The 4-710D is expected to be released worldwide in Q3 2010; Pricing remains TBD. More information:
