Focusrite Red Pre

focusrite redFocusrite’s Red Range gained legendary status following its release in 1993. The Red 1 rapidly became a sought-after mic preamp in the world’s top studios, thanks to its ability to handle almost any microphone and its unique, signature sound.

Featuring the same circuit topology and components as the original transformer-based mic pre designs, and made in England, the Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre offers the same performance as the original Focusrite Red microphone preamplifier in a new, popular format: the 500 Series, or “Lunchbox” portable modular system. It’s ideal for mobile/location use as well as in the studio.

If you remember the unique, stunning sound of the original Focusrite Red range – or even if you don’t! – and want to bring that signature sound into your studio, then Red 1 500, with its signature red anodised aluminium front panel, is for you. More info here…
