Preamps are used to connect microphones, instruments and more to your recording equipment. Amplifying low level signals to line levels, preamps are an essential component to your studio setup. With a dedicated external preamp, you can expect premium sound quality with more gain. The variety of mic preamp designs offer special sounds such as tube and vintage tones - only available in external preamps.

About Microphone Pre-Amps

Mic Pre-amps boost the gain from a "mic level" signal and can add character and warmth.

Incorporating an ADC into the traditional design, the Audient ASP800 8-Channel Pre is another great option for pristine audio conversion along with a great sounding mic pre all in one package. Alternatively, browse Audient's full range of Mic Pres.

For the more serious studio environment at home or professionally we have a range of dual, quad and 8 channel preamps available from leading manufacturers such as Warm Audio and Universal Audio.
