Mic preamp

This microphone preamplifier includes phase, phantom power and an instrument input. The microphone input has three input impedance choices (2.2k ohms, 300 ohm and a hi-z choice). The instrument input has an impedance of 1.2M ohms. The gain over all is adjustable in 1dB steps from 0 to 66dB on the mic input and 0 to 30dB on the instrument input. Gain is displayed on a two-digit led display. Unique to the Europa pre-amp are three controls for changing the color of the pre-amp. The first control is a Speed which changes how fast the pre-amp can respond. The level meter has a 0VU reference point of (+4dbu) with one decibel steps. The maximum output level is +24dBu balanced with the maximum balanced input level of +24dBu at 0dB of gain. This allows the Europa 1 pre-amp to be used in a mix environment for coloring.
