London, England (December 16, 2016)—The Big Bear Audio MP1 is a low noise, Discrete Class A mic pre-amp with high impedance discrete instrument input, designed for 500 series racks.
The MP1 was reportedly designed from scratch to provide producers and engineers the ability to ‘Color’ their sound with a high end pre-amp. Accordingly, it sports an interchangeable Color slot that allows it to take a selection of modular cards that variously provide levels of distortion and saturation, as well as subtle optical compression.
With the MP1 already released in Europe, the company has found its more popular cards include the Germainium Discrete Saturator, the Pentode Distortion and the 15IPS Tape Saturator.
A MP1+ transformer version is available, adding a Lundahl output transformer and an ELMA stepped attenuator.
