The EM-Red comes with a 50/50 output transformer. A Designs Audio added a little kick to this one by changing the “Input Transformer,” as well. The results translates into more “Up Front Mids”! You may find this very useful when recording acoustic guitar with a condenser microphone.
As with all the 500 Series Pres A Designs Audio produces, there is a 48v Phantom Power Switch. With all the new condenser microphones on the market in a very wide price range, the engineer or musician now has limitless possibilities to choose from in their endless search for their “perfect sound.” You may also like to use the EM-Red for recording Toms, both rack and floor.
