A Designs P1 500-Series Preamp Module
The A Designs P1 500-Series Preamp Module is based on the company's popular Pacifica preamp, and gives you exceptional sound quality with the classic vibe of some of the great vintage preamps. Perfect for vocals, instruments, room mics, piano, and on instruments with sharp transients such as drums and various percussion instruments.
The A Designs P-1 has the highest fidelity of all the A-Designs Audio 500 preamps, capturing the mojo of its older and larger sibling, the extremely popular A Designs Pacifica. The A Designs P-1 has a big low end, slightly forward midrange and extended highs.
If youre a fan of the Quad Eight or API sound, youll love the A Designs P-1! It shines on vocals, instruments, room mics, piano, and on instruments with sharp transients such as drums and various percussion instruments. If youre building a 500-series unit with drum recording in mind, a pair of the A Designs P-1s is a superb choice for overheads when you want to capture the entire kit - especially the sizzle of the cymbals.
Featuring a DI, 48V phantom power, 20db pad, and phase buttons, and a gain control, the A Designs P-1 excels at adding just the right tonal "color" to the input signal, and flatters any microphone. If you want to add a touch of vintage tone to your console, or just want to improve the range of your studio's tonal capability, plug in the A Designs P-1 500-Series Preamp Module.

This was the first pair of pres I bought for my lunch box, and it is truly one of my favorites (along side my purple audio biz and pants). Has a very interesting, yet tasteful color. Only down side is that there is no output attenuator, because when hit hard the pre sounds brings out a whole new color - so it would be nice to not have to worry about clipping as much....
well worth the money - clean and versatile enough to make a great pair
