With the same circuit topology and components as the original design, the Focusrite Red 1 500-series preamp sounds just as impressive

  • 500-series Microphone Preamp Module
  • Same circuit topology and components as the original red
  • Custom Carnhill output transformer
  • Traditional wide bandwidth of the original Red series
  • The Red 1 500 is suitable for almost any microphone – ribbon, dynamic or condenser

Featuring the same components and circuit topology as the original transformer-based mic pre designs, the Focusrite Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre offers the same performance as the original Red microphone preamplifier in a 500 Series, or “Lunchbox” module.

The unique Focusrite mic amp topology of the Red 1 500 module provides superb common mode rejection, excellent overload margin and, with its shared gain structure, (14dB from the transformer and up to 46dB from the amplifier) a very low noise floor, combined with the traditional wide bandwidth of the original Red series (10Hz to 140kHz).

This impressive level of performance is maintained over a wide range of impedances applied to the input, making the Focusrite Red 1 500 module suitable for almost any microphone – ribbon, dynamic or condenser.
