MP32 is a 32-channel console-grade microphone preamp with integrated software remote control and Antelope Audio's exciting new approach to analog circuit design.
The MP32 is designed to be a perfect match for top-selling audio interface Orion32 (Orion32 can be ordered separately), this way ensuring a full transparency of the sound and complete integrity of the signal via the whole chain, from the mic pres through the conversion, recording and playback, all of them characterized by the signature Antelope sound. The combination of the Orion32 and MP32 totaling just 3U in rack space make it a perfectly suited solution for studios and live recording where rack space can be a precious commodity.
Exceptional Clarity, Transparency & Dynamics
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.
Each preamplifier on the MP32 was designed to be open and transparent, introducing an increased level of sonic realism in recorded material. The unit offers excellent headroom and up to 65 dB of gain in 1 dB steps: more than enough power for even the most demanding ribbon mics. Since the MP32 is so compact yet uncompromising in its quality and feature set it offers an economical solution for modern engineers and producers to increase both quality and channel count at the input stage, whether they are operating a DAW-based project studio, a state of the art commercial studio, a laptop-based live rig or a multi-channel remote recording truck.
Digital Remote Control
A user-friendly control panel for Mac or Windows allows for easy remote management of the device’s input types and mic gain levels. The intuitive software control panel provides fast set up and easy fine-tuning of individual mic preamp gain, as well as the independent assignment of phantom power and mic/line/hi-z switching. Complex gain structure and preamp settings are made incredibly simple by the user-defined presets, just a mouse click away. In addition, individual V/U style metering allows for instant signal confirmation at a glance of the software.
Compact Packaging & Value
Never before have so many console-grade mic pres been available in such a small enclosure, not to mention at such an incredible price. MP32 is housed in just a 2U box, which makes it perfect not only for studios, but for location and live recording, where rack space is a precious commodity.
