Antelope Audio has introduced the MP32, a 32-channel, microphone preamplifier with integrated software control. Housed in a 2U rack space, the MP32 is specifically designed to complement Orion32’s conversion. The new MP32 expands on the analog preamplifier circuit design of the recently launched Zen Studio, which includes 12 quality mic preamps.
Each of the class-A preamps on the MP32 feature phantom power and four of them can operate as Hi-Z instrument inputs. By using the MP32’s control panel (compatible with both Mac and PC), users can manipulate each of the unit’s input types and mic gain levels remotely. Even more, audio engineers are able to save and easily recall their own presets for various situations, making workflow more efficient. The individual V/U style metering provides instant signal confirmation at the glance of a computer monitor. The unit claims to offer excellent headroom and up to 65 dB of gain in 1 dB steps.
Antelope Audio’s MP32 is scheduled to ship by the end of the year for $2995, with a special discount available for Orion32 owners.
