Dual-channel 1073-style Preamp with Highpass Filter
The classic Neve 1073 wrote the book on characterful mic preamplification, so in designing their 1073MPF dual-channel mic/line preamp, BAE aimed high. It's amazing how well they succeeded. Done up in classic RAF blue-gray livery, the hand-wired, transformer-coupled, pure Class A 1073MPF is quite versatile, with 71dB of gain that lets you capture subdued sources with your favorite ribbon mic. Cranking the main gain stage enhances your tracks with tasty vintage-style coloration. The 1073MPF includes a highpass filter that lets you roll off mud, rumble, and other low-frequency content that can mar an otherwise perfect take. Under the bonnet reside the finest components, such as Carnhill transformers — like those found in vintage 1073s. Also onboard: a DI jack, polarity reverse, 48V phantom power, and selectable impedance to optimally match a variety of microphones. The 1073MPF delivers distinctive Class A sound with a harmonically rich bottom end, focused midrange, and slightly resonant highs.
This is the high-pass filter version of the 1073MP. The 1073MPF is the mic pre-amp version of the 1073 equaliser, sharing the the same well-known characteristic Class A sound with its harmonically rich low end, slight resonant highs and maintained focused mids.
A transformer coupled input, with two selectable impedances makes the 1073MP work well with a variety of microphones.
There is also a line input feature for adding depth to 2-bus mixes and a DI input for all passive and active instruments.
As a coloured and versatile mic-pre, the 1073MP maintains its sonic signature across a wide bandwidth.
