This cool and little box released by Black Lion is a new product that wants to bring the vintage sound of some console’s transformer-less circuits to your home studio, with the Black Lion Audio Auteur Mic Preamp. This design has been based on a fully-balanced mic preamp, let’s take a look at the features to see if it is worth.
The features of the Black Lion Audio Auteur Mic Preamp are 2 channels, +48V phantom power, phase, from 0 to 66 dB gain, 10dB output signal pad, 600 ohm-impedance M-6 silicon steel output transformer, XLR (input) and TLS (output) connections and this preamp is powered by a 24VAC power supply.
The device comes with a very easy-to-use design with simple controls, you have the power of a professional preamp inside a amateur-like device. The price, by now, of the Black Lion Audio Auteur Mic Preamp is $325 plus shipping rates, but it will be more expensive soon, so if you’re interested… think getting one now.
