CONDITION: Good working condition, light wear or rack wear (see pictures). Includes power cord.
The Eureka starts with a high-headroom Class A solid-state mic preamplifier with +22 dBu of headroom, providing wide dynamic range and excellent transient-response characteristics.
The preamp’s variable mic-input impedance enables you to vary the “color” of your sound and get the best performance from any type of microphone.
A Saturate control simulates the effects of tape saturation and tube warmth so you can go from crystal-clear to warm and rich.
The Eureka also provides all of the features you need in a preamp/channel strip. A 20 dB pad lets you tame hot input signals, and a high-pass filter attenuates all frequencies below 80 Hz by 12 dB. Polarity reverse enables you to deal with phase problems when using open mics.
The back provides XLR and ¼” line outputs for connection to almost any recording interface, amp, or P.A. system. The EQ can be pre- or post-compressor, and you can bypass each independently. Balanced send and return jacks enable you to insert your favorite outboard processor before the compressor and EQ.
The backlit VU meter can display gain reduction or output gain.
The channel strip’s fast, fully variable compressor provides Attack, Release, and Ratio controls and can be switched between hard and soft knee.
The compressor includes an internal sidechain with variable (10 Hz to 10 kHz) high-pass filter, so it can achieve anything from hard pumping to transparent compression.
The Eureka’s three-band, fully parametric EQ has overlapping frequency selection on each band. It can be used pre- or post-compressor and can be bypassed.
