The Ventura from A-Designs is inspired by the great Quad Eight consoles. Run at optimal levels, its' signal is clear and ultra transparent, with all the dimensionality, air, and extended bass you expect from high-quality analog. Push it a little harder and the Ventura's custom-wound, ear-tested transformer responds with a more aggressive sound while still retaining the utmost clarity. To add its own special mojo, it features a 3-band EQ reminiscent of console EQs from the golden age of recording. And even if you’re one of those engineers who religiously avoid using equalization while tracking, you'll find yourself looking for excuses to use this EQ, especially if you need midrange punch without harshness on guitars or snare. Plus, the Ventura’s EQ can be accessed via its own insert for sweetening tracks during mixdown. The Ventura also has a high-impedance instrument DI built to enhance the performance guitar and bass pickups.

Features:
  • Ultra transparent, solid-state mic preamplifier with 72db gain; instrument DI; and true, 3-band parametric EQ with high-and low-pass filters
  • Mic preamp, EQ, and DI can be used together or independently
  • Three specially designed discrete C12X operational amplifiers
  • Jensen input transformer and custom Cinemag output transformers
  • Toroidal power transformer
  • Balanced TRS insert return/EQ input
  • Separate gain controls for mic and instrument inputs
  • -20dB pad, +48VDC phantom power with red LED indicator, phase switch, and on/off switch with blue LED indicator
  • Balanced gold Neutrik XLR input, direct, and main output connectors
  • Silver-contact, high-durability toggle switches with no relays
  • Hand-built in the USA with audiophile-quality components including high-tolerance metal film resistors and high-quality polystyrene, polypropylene, COG, and bi-polar capacitors
  • Single rackspace steel chassis
