Auteur MKII 500 Mic Pre

The Auteur MKII 500 is a single channel, 500 series preamp that features phantom power, phase, a 13dBu pad, and a Hi-Z input.

The Auteur MKII 500 is one of the most “bang for your buck” 500-series preamps in existence! You get all of the sound of the 1⁄2 rack version, but with the addition of a Hi-Z input! It features an ultra-fast input stage that captures lots of detail and nuance, and a signal path transformer that adds some “beef” on the way out. Once you hear the Auteur MKII 500, you’ll want to load your 500 rack full of ‘em!

    1. GAIN: clockwise rotation yields an increase in input signal amplitude, counterclockwise rotation yields a decrease in input signal amplitude
    2. 48v: engage to turn phantom power on, disengage to turn phantom power off
    3. PHASE (Ø): engage to adjust input signal polarity by 180°, disengage to leave input signal polarity unchanged
    4. PAD: engage to reduce input signal amplitude by 13dBu, disengage to leave input signal amplitude unchanged
    5. Hi-Z: engage to use front panel Hi-Z IN as preamp source, disengage to use 500 rack XLR input as preamp source
