Put four channels of classic American preamp flavour in your studio with the Warm Audio WA-412!

  • 4 channel microphone preamp and DI
  • Fully discrete, transformer coupled, through-hole component topology
  • Altran USA custom wound, premium input and output transformers
  • X520 discrete op-amp in every channel, socketed for convenience. Can be user-replaced with most 6 pin, discrete op-amps for varying flavour & tone
  • 65 dB of gain
  • Inputs - Microphone XLR & Active Instrument 2Meg ohm HI-Z; Outputs - Transformer balanced XLR & TRS
  • TONE button – Input impedance switches from 600 ohms to 150 ohms (affects the tone of both the mic and HI-Z inputs
  • 20 dB pad - pads both mic and instrument DI inputs
  • +48 volt phantom power
  • Output trim knob for precise level control and tone sculpting

The Warm Audio WA-412 provides 4 channels of classic American console preamps in a sleek 1RU design.

This style of preamp is often referred to as "the sound of Rock n' Roll" for its BIG punchy low end and smooth open top end. The price/performance ratio of the Warm Audio WA-412 is almost unfathomable to the experienced studio engineer who has possibly paid much more for preamps of this style during their career.

Featuring fully discrete socketed 6-pin opamps and custom wound Altran USA input and output transformers, the Warm Audio WA-412 leaves nothing to be desired.

If you are looking for multiple channels of world class tone in an affordable package, the Warm Audio WA-412 is the right choice for you.
