4 hybrid tube/solid state preamps and 1176-style compressors in a single unit.
The Universal Audio 4-710d is a boutique quality, 4-channel microphone/line preamplifier with unique tube and solid state tone-blending capabilitiesâ??perfect for a wide range of microphone and instrument sources. This versatile multichannel preamp offers selectable 1176-style compression circuitry on each channel, plus four additional line inputs feeding 8 channels of pristine analog-to-digital conversion. Building upon UA's classic analog design approach, combined with smart modern features, the 4-710d is the most flexible preamp in the UA lineup.
At the core of the 4-710d are four channels of tone-blending "Twin-Finity" mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression, including specially tuned "fast" and "slow" settings. Each of the four mic preamp channels allows for continuously variable phase-aligned tone, between a 100% tube and 100% solid state signal path. Send and return jacks are available for external processing or signal access.
The eight analog inputs are digitized via ultra high-quality 24-bit A/D converters at selectable sample rates up to 192kHz. Digital output is available via dual ADAT "lightpipe" or AES/EBU DB-25 connectors, facilitating integration with most popular audio interfaces.
