The Auteur DT from Black Lion Audio is a versatile preamp/DI box ready to suit all of your single-channel recording needs. Thanks to 60 dB of Chicago console-style gain and 1/4" and XLR inputs, Auteur DT will accurately capture and enhance anything you throw at it: the crackling snap of a well-tuned snare—or the thunder, resonance and decay of a ’70s acrylic kick drum getting hit hard. Add heat and texture to synths and mix-penetrating presence to vocals. With a tough-as-nails brushed black aluminum chassis bookended by organic, vintage-style varnished maple side panels, the Auteur DT is sturdily built for comfort, usability and lasting performance while also looking like it should cost about twice what it does. Auteur DT also features a robust USA-made transformer and cherry-picked Nichicon and Vishay capacitors, ensuring premium sound quality, long life and low noise.
