Raise the volume with the Discrete Microphone Preamp. A lot of preamps on the market do a good job of raising the volume of mics and instruments. Unfortunately, many pres are doing only that, raising volume. The super clean designs of today often leave the signal exiting the preamp sounding much the same as it did entering it. If you are looking for a preamp to improve and shape your signal you will most definitely love the WA12 MKII. The WA12 MKII is designed to transform plain instruments and vocals into exciting tones. If your mixes lack depth, struggle to sound alive, or are just missing that professional touch you've always wanted, there is a good chance you will love the WA12 MKII. Packed with performance, the preamp is a completely discrete, high voltage, dual-transformer microphone design with high gain (+71dB), high headroom, low noise, and an exciting sonic performance, great for all types of recording applications. A high quality mic preamp is one of the most critical pieces needed to achieve the elusive 'larger than life' sound.
- Based around a discrete op-amp, the X731, which is Warm's own reproduction of the vintage classic Melcor 1731, considered by some to be the warmer predecessor to the modern 2520-style op-amp
- The X731 can achieve vibrant, clean and lifelike tones; but can also be driven into mild saturation at much higher gain levels
- The effects can be subtle, but very pleasing to the ear
