The MP73 is a three stages, single ended class A preamp based on the world famous vintage British consoles of the 70's.
The sound of the MP73, like its model is full, silky, detailed and musical, slightly larger than life, very complimentary to a digital recording environment.
The MP73 is great on vocals, acoustic instruments and generally all close miked sources.
The MP12 is based on one discrete Op-Amp, one input transformer and one output transformer.
When built with Cinemag transformers, it delivers what is called the “LA” sound, popularised by the famous American consoles of the 70's : the punchy midrange and tight bass tone of the iron. This MP12 is great on drums, electric instruments and generally all close miked sources.
The MP32 is a class A, discrete differential input, transformer output preamp.
The transformerless input gives this preamp an extremely fast transient response while the transformer output adds a touch of "iron" warmth.
The result is an extraordinary crystal clear but warm sound, without the "clinical" sounding of some transformerless designs.
The MP32 is great on all transient rich sources like acoustic and percussive instruments, and in all distant miking applications.
The MP66 is a single ended class A tube preamplifier with transformers on input and output . It is inspired by designs from the 60's.
The sound ranges from stunning transparency, with an overwhelming sense of dynamic, when softly driven, to soft valve limiting when pushing the gain further, to a “guitar amp” type of saturation when you push it into the limits. The transition between these modes is very smooth.
The EQ73 is a parametric equalizer based on the design that was originally used in the Neve 1073 and 1084 modules.
The EQ73 can be used as a standalone unit but also as an insert, between the input and output stages of the MP73 mic pre, recreating the full architecture of the 1073.
It is available in two versions. One version uses transformers for input and output (option TX), the other version is Electronically balanced (option EB).
The SKMP is a one unit, 19” enclosure, designed to receive the components needed to build a Sound Skulptor microphone preamp. It includes 2 DI input and all the connectors for 4 channels.
The PS2 is an external power supply unit that delivers 3 voltages : +30V, -30V and +48V. It can easily supply 2 complete Skulptor microphone preamps equipped with 4 preamp cards each.
