Enter below to win the ISA One!
Back in the mid-1980s, Sir George Martin commissioned the legendary Rupert Neve to build a series of new, ‚Äėno compromise‚Äô console modules for AIR studios.
They were an enormous hit, and formed the basis of the Focusrite Studio Console, still widely regarded as the best-sounding analogue recording console of all time. The descendants of those modules are now used in leading studios around the world and are a component in the sound of thousands of hit records.
Today‚Äôs ISA Range from Focusrite can put that classic Focusrite sound into your studio or live performance. Featuring a rugged, portable all-metal enclosure, the ISA One combines the classic Focusrite microphone preamp with a flexible, independent DI channel and optional 192kHz precision A/D conversion.
At the heart of the ISA range is the microphone preamplifier with its Lundahl input transformer. This design is based on the original ISA110 and is¬†essentially the same circuit that has been used for 30 years in successive Focusrite designs. The input transformer imparts a special character to the sound that can‚Äôt be truly emulated in any other way: inseparable from the microphone itself, the transformer input stage is ideal for use with classic microphones.
This mic pre also has a twist the original didn‚Äôt have, which makes it far more versatile: four carefully-selected impedance settings allow you to match microphone to input in different ways, coaxing extra tones out of your mics‚ÄĒespecially your dynamics and ribbons. Bring out the character of a classic mic, or go for a totally transparent, modern sound ‚Äď with the ISA One, it‚Äôs up to you.
