Rockland, MA (October 25, 2005)–Audio Exchange International (AXI) is distributing Reso Audiotronics’ Reso Pre 273. The 2-channel, remote-controlled microphone preamp is built using a vintage 1073 analog circuit design, and is intended for use with all major DAW systems, or in a live sound environment. Controllable directly from the front panel, remotely from Pro Tools or a MIDI source such as a control surface or software plug-in, the Reso Pre 273 is built upon the “classic analog style with flexibility in mind.”
The 273 can be set up close to the source eliminating the need to run long mic level lines. Each channel of the 273 has a 10 dB pad, phantom power, phase and mute controls, and status is displayed for each function. Similar to the original 1073, there are 13 gain steps utilized throughout the 20-80 dB range, however with the 273, all of the controls are MIDI-accessible.
“Reso Audiotronics introduced the Reso Pre 273 to meet the needs of project studio owners and commercial studios that don’t have the need or budget for the 8-channel Reso Pre 873, but still want the high-quality performance and remote controlled flexibility that it offers,” said Chris Walsh, director of marketing for AXI. “The Reso Pre 273 combines a classic, British analog mic pre circuit with a remote control. This is a winning combination in all applications, especially for the Pro Tools user.”
