The A-Designs P-1 is a 500 series microphone preamp module inspired by the brand's own Pacifica. It has the highest fidelity of all the A-Designs Audio 500 series preamps, with a big low end, slightly forward midrange and extended highs.
If you’re a fan of the Quad Eight or API sound, you’ll love the P-1. It shines on vocals, instruments, room mics, piano, and on instruments with sharp transients such as drums and various percussion instruments. If you’re building a 500-series unit with drum recording in mind, a pair of P-1s is a superb choice for overheads when you want to capture the entire kit - especially the sizzle of the cymbals.
