The 1073LB provides a Neve 1073 microphone preamplifier in a single 500-series module. The 1073 is widely considered the world’s premier mic preamp, delivering the unique Neve sound featured on some of the most famous recordings of the past 40 years.
The big, punchy sound of the 1073 complements any musical genre, from rock to rap, jazz to classical. Its lush sound with classic Neve signature makes it the consummate mic pre for recording vocals, guitars, and acoustic instruments of all descriptions. With the 1073LB, the highly sought-after sound is now available in a cost-effective 500-series form-factor, without the additional EQ found on the classic 1073 unit.
The 1073LB provides the legendary sound of Neve in a remarkably simple format. A Mic or Line input feeds a Class A gain stage, with adjustable Gain control and selectable 48V available on the Mic input. The Class A analogue output is controlled via adjustable front-panel +5/-10dB Trim control. This mono unit is the perfect solution for studios and audio engineers looking to bring in the very essence of the Neve 1073 sound to their portable racks.
