The MP 5.12 is based on one discrete Op-Amp, one Cinemag input transformer and one Cinemag output transformer.
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 MP 5.12 is great on drums, electric instruments and generally all close miked sources.
Just install it in your API* compatible LunchboxTM rack and start recording.
You bring the solder (use good quality solder, 1mm diameter max) and the Lunchbox.
The MP512 kit is an easy build. The DOA is a little more difficult because of the components density.
The XT500 option is a cable extension that allows you to test and setup the module outside the lunchbox while connected.You get a discount when you puchase it as a Kit option.
