Overview

The Fredenstein 500 Series Artistic MicPre Plus is a high performance, full-featured microphone preamp. It features Fredenstein’s revolutionary Color technology, which emulates tube amp characteristics. The 100% discrete signal path, proprietary OPA2 amplifier and U.S.-made steel output transformer offer premium preamp sounds for the professional or project studio.

The variable Color control allows you to adjust the tube-type circuit from very subtle to extremely pronounced. In addition, the Color feature is also level dependent in the same way tube gear behaves. Variable color enables a myriad of new creative possibilities and prevents cold and stale sounds. Turning the Color knob all the way counter clockwise, the Color LED turns off and the Color circuit is completely disabled.

The Artistic MicPre Plus has matched and integrated dual input transistors, which guarantee vastly improved specifications compared to older designs. The OPA2 is socketed and can be exchanged without tools. The industry standard pin-out makes it compatible with many manufactures. The sound is further defined by the American-made steel-core output transformer, which is known for its smooth vintage sound without being dark or purely emphasizing only the mid range.

The Artistic MicPre Plus features a maximum gain of 65 dB, a 20 dB Pad, switchable polarity, selectable input impedance, and phantom-power support. The output level is indicated with a SIG and a +20dB LED. A 2 MOhms high-impedance direct input is located on the front-panel of the Artistic MicPre Plus. It accepts balanced and unbalanced signals. The rear microphone input is automatically disconnected when a plug is inserted in the DI connector.
