PURE DRIVE Pre's harnesses the renowned microphone preamp technology from Solid State Logic's ORIGIN console, introduces a new DRIVE mode and connectivity, and makes them available in 2U rackmount
PURE DRIVE QUAD takes it further, adding a new ‘Asymmetric’ DRIVE, advanced digital connectivity, and an onboard USB interface. PURE DRIVE QUAD offers four mic preamp input impedance options. Additionally, each mic pre includes independent +48V phantom power, polarity inversion, and a sweepable High Pass Filter. PURE DRIVE QUAD stands as one of the most capable and feature-rich outboard microphone preamplifiers available.
3 Flavours, 1 Mic Pre
No electro-mechanical components (potentiometers, mechanical switches, relays etc) are used in the critical audio signal path of PURE DRIVE QUAD, allowing impeccable ‘matching’ between all channels. The use of digitally controlled analogue circuits, controlled by detented pots and electronic switches simplifies recall and precision of settings.
Each of PURE DRIVE QUAD’s mic pre’s can be independently switched between three distinct DRIVE modes: Clean, Classic Drive, and Asymmetric Drive.
PURE DRIVE QUAD’s advanced connectivity opens a world of recording possibilities. Its comprehensive selection of analogue and digital I/O offers microphone preamps with exceptional performance and flexibility. It's also ideal for project studios and on-location sessions where quality cannot be compromised, thanks to its integrated USB sound card.
PURE DRIVE QUAD features four rear-mounted combo XLR inputs, four front-panel Hi-Z/DI instrument inputs with automatic input detection, and three sets of D-sub connectors for line-level inputs, as well as insert send and insert return. PURE DRIVE QUAD’s insert returns/ADC inputs operate up to full +24 dBu line-level, for interfacing with other professional equipment.
PURE DRIVE QUAD’s versatile digital connectivity features an integrated USB soundcard providing four channels of audio into your DAW up to 32-Bit/192 kHz. Two AES/EBU output pairs, and ADAT out, offering four channels at 24-bit/48 kHz, or cascade two PURE DRIVE QUADs via its convenient ADAT LINK IN connection and access up to eight channels. The AES and ADAT outputs can even be individually repurposed to be fed from the onboard USB soundcard as outputs from your DAW. Finally, there's an auto-ranging word clock input and output for robust digital clocking
