Synths, drum machines, and even laptops can likewise be sweetened by the Ascent's DI. Easy and Intuitive In The Studio. Because you're working with a clean, robust, electronically-balanced input signal, the Ascent Mic Preamp/DI makes dialing in your exact sound easy, intuitive and quick.By working the familiar stepped input gain control (up to 70db alone) and the -30dB pad against the variable output fader (which provides an additional 10dB of gain), you can dial in your preferred tones without having to consider an overly complex gain architecture. It's all about driving the versatile DSOP-2 output stage to your exacting tastes, whatever they may be in any given moment. Like so many other engineers, you'll find yourself reaching for the Ascent Mic Preamp/DI over and over again to reliably deliver a vast array of outstanding sounds for any instrument or voice you're recording. Features of Ascent Mic Preamp/DI. Phoenix Audio's unique Class A, transformerless, true-balanced mic input stage. Phoenix Audio's transformer-balanced DSOP-2 Class-A discrete output stage with custom wound DB694 output transformer. Wired with PTFE silver plated military grade cable. Push buttons: Hi-Pass, Phase Reverse, Switchable 48V phantom power on push-button switch. Phase Reverse on Push-Button Switch. Mic Pre Gain Range: -30 to -70 in 5dB steps With 10dB more available on the detented ouput fader. Frequency response Class A (DSOP-2) output stage: 20Hz to 20kHz +- 0.5dB, Maximum. An EQ As Versatile As It Is Unique. Phoenix Audio's Ascent Gyrator EQ is one of today's most unique and musical EQs, allowing an incredible variety of sounds useful for everything from clean high-headroom mix buss tone shaping to deep frequency carving to smooth Class-A circuit saturation. Available either in our remarkable mono or dual mono Class-A Ascent Mic Preamp/DIs in a stereo 1RU unit, the Ascent Gyrator EQ is as powerful as it is fun to use.
The Gyrator EQ was first developed during what most consider the golden age of solid-state analog audio design: the 1970s. Originally designed to emulate the characteristics of an active inductor EQ (think Neve, API), the Gyrator EQ uses a rather clever combination of an amplifier, resistors and capacitors to accomplish incredibly smooth and musical frequency modifications. The modern-day Phoenix Ascent Gyrator EQ gives you High, High-Mid, Low-Mid and Low frequency bands, each notched to proven frequencies from a shimmering 25kHz on down to a thumping 40Hz. There's also a high pass filter at 80Hz, which can eliminate rumble or be used "against" low-end boosts for an extra range of unique EQ curves (think: Pultec). Even at extreme boosts and cuts, the Ascent Gyrator EQ's uniquely musical filters maintain the core quality of your original signal, allowing you to make bold, gut-level EQ moves that won't sound harsh, slurred or out of phase.
Used more subtly, these four filters are capable of highly coherent tone shaping suitable for full mixes and mastering. Driving the Output Circuit for More Tone Shaping.
Phoenix Audio's renown DSOP-2 output amplifier, with its custom-wound transformer, is able to deliver everything from ultra-clean signals with abundant headroom to fat, fully saturated tones. By lowering the input attenuator and boosting the output signal, one can drive the DSOP-2 output stage for a wide variety of lush, Class-A saturation. Or, do the oppositeback off on the output while boosting the inputand you'll get huge, clean, hi-fi tones. Many engineers even use the Ascent Gyrator EQ completely flat in order to simply add the musicality of our proprietary amplifier circuits. Versatile And Effortless, Day After Day.
The Ascent Gyrator EQ is a powerfully versatile, high-quality studio tool. Unlike many Class-A EQs that just do "their thing" due to inherent distortion characteristics, the Ascent Gyrator EQ keeps the input signal clean, making it possible for the engineer to keep tones transparent or saturate them to taste. Importantly, doing so is effortless and intuitive due to the Ascent Gyrator's straight-forward design and unerring musicality. Those who own this EQ tell us that it quickly becomes their "go to EQ"used effortlessly every day across a vast variety of instruments, voices and full mixes. Our new sheen control brings life and vitality to your vocals and instruments by adding a super high freqency boost or cut and adding a sheen.
