format_quote Legendary 70’s API console sound in 500 format. The design is based on API 312 preamp with some careful layout adjustments to keep noise levels down.
The RA312 delivers all the frequency characteristics and nuances of recordable audio, allowing you to highlight sound colors that are unavailable to many competitors. Now you can get the power of the prominent mid frequencies that were characteristic to the analogue recording era of the past even in your digital recording chain. During our long-term development work, we have chosen components that allow us to achieve a classic sound with today's technology.
The RA312 is equipped with custom input and output transformers, Grayhill gain switch and an adjustable phantom power led indicator to name just a few components. If sound, quality, design and price are equally important to you, look no further - this preamp has it all in one package. Plug your microphone into the RA312 and a wide smile is guaranteed!
The RA312 suits well for amplifying any type of audio sources starting from drums, bass, electric guitars and all types of acoustical instruments plus of course the vocals. It makes everything sound big and bold.
