The Auteur has been a staple preamp in studios around the world for many years. It has become the go-to choice for bridging the gap between clean, transparent preamps and those with lots of color and bite. The Auteur MKII is the next step in perfecting this combination of vintage and modern sound at an affordable price!

The Auteur MKII is a two channel preamp that features high-speed input stages that capture lots of detail and nuance, and transformer-coupled output stages that impart a nice touch of vintage vibe. It also features phantom power, phase, and a 10dB pad. It’s housed in a 1U, ½ rack chassis, and can be linked together with a second ½ rack unit by using the included connector plate.

The Auteur MKII has a revamped gain stage that results in higher gain, lower noise, lower distortion, and a more extended frequency response than the original design. Use it on drums for rotund results. Throw it on vocals for a silky polish. Hear guitars soar like never before. No matter what you use it on, the Auteur MKII will do the job like a pro!

Front
POWER: flip switch up to turn preamp on, flip switch down to turn preamp off
48V: engage to turn phantom power on, disengage to turn phantom power off
GAIN: clockwise rotation yields an increase in output signal amplitude, counterclockwise rotation yields a decrease in output signal amplitude
PHASE (Ø): engage to adjust input signal polarity by 180°, disengage to leave input signal polarity unchanged
PAD: engage to reduce input signal amplitude by 10dBu, disengage to leave input signal amplitude unchanged

Back
XLR IN: balanced, mic-level XLR input
TRS OUT: balanced, line-level TRS output
GND: internal chassis ground
AC IN: 24VAC input jack (only use a BLA-specified power supply)
