Antelope Audio MP32

32-Channel Microphone Preamp

As part of its most recent product unveiling at the 137th International AES Convention, leading professional audio gear manufacturer Antelope Audio announces the MP32, a 32-channel, console-grade microphone preamplifier with integrated software control. Housed in a 2U rack space, MP32 is specifically designed to complement Orion32‘s precise conversion and ensure even greater transparency while recording. MP32 Mic Pre and Orion32 AD/DA 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.

The new MP32 expands on the analog preamplifier circuit design of the recently launched Zen Studio, which includes 12 studio quality mic preamps. “With the MP32, the key idea was to incorporate an holistic approach,” says Antelope’s founder and CEO, Igor Levin. “Instead of considering a mic pre to be a disparate element, it should be viewed within the framework of the overall structure which comprises the A/D converter, its drivers and the pre itself. The result is that the entire system works in harmony, ensuring sonic integrity throughout the entire recording chain: from recording, to conversion, and playback.” Quality and Versatility On the Road, in the Home or in the Studio 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. MP32 Mic Pre Rear Panel 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. The MP32 is scheduled to ship later in the forth quarter of 2014 and will be priced at $2995, with a special discount available for Orion32 owners.
