Featuring a fully discrete 6-pin operational amplifier and custom-wound Altran USA input and output transformers, no more is needed. If you are looking for a world-class multi-channel preamplifier at an affordable price, the WA-412 is the right choice. But that alone was not enough for full band or drum recording. I knew at the time that if I couldn't make a good recording, I wouldn't be able to go back, but due to lack of budget, I couldn't make many recordings through a good mic preamp.
If WA-412 existed at that time, I think that there was no need to compromise on dull sound quality. We believe that the WA-412 will be a "useful processor" in many commercial and home studios. Bryce Young (Founder of Warm Audio).The WA-412 has many more features in addition to those expected from this type of preamplifier. Equipped with output volume adjustment for each channel for precise control and creative gain adjustment.
In addition, tone switches (input impedance conversion) can be added to each channel to select warm, punchy classic console tones, or open, natural sounds. Equipped with higher performance components. Each channel has a 6-pin full discrete socket operational amplifier, which can be replaced with other operational amplifiers.
Discrete op-amp circuits are characterized by wide headroom and low distortion, and greatly affect the sound produced by this type of classic console preamp. The input / output transformer of the US high-end transformer maker, Altran is adopted as WA-412.In close cooperation with Altran, we have created an original transformer that improves the low frequency response. It uses traditional wound technology to create a very smooth and open character. The WA-412, which inherits traditional console magic with carefully selected components, is a four-channel "useful processor" that boasts a surprisingly high level of performance. The WA-412 has all the features you need to play a guitar. The clarity of the mid-high output with balance is really amazing. I like the original tone that the 412 has and the sounds that change with the touch of a button. I use all channels for drums, bass, vocals, and guitar overdubs. · 4 channels · Mic · Preamp + DI for musical instrument.
