Description:

The Precision 8 is designed to provide the detailed, transparent sonic performance necessary for the highest quality direct tracking and live sound applications. It includes a unique combination of features which make it useful as a complete input system for MDM's, HDR's, and DAW's. Two sonically accurate discrete FET instrument inputs (DI's) are available for recording or live sound applications in which realistic, unaffected sound quality is desired. The 5-segment peak-hold level metering with selectable peak reference allows rapid optimization of program levels between the PRECISION 8 and devices to which it is interfaced.

PRECISION 8 is ideal for location recording due to its 8-channel single rack unit format, smooth continuous gain controls, useful level metering, and easy interconnect. The integral MS decoder provides creative spatial image control that is particularly useful in attaining an exciting stereo image with minimum effort and microphone repositioning.

With the emphasis shifting to digital audio platforms and modular configurations, software "plug-ins" are replacing many outboard signal processors. Other than the microphone itself, the microphone preamplifier is the most significant analog device remaining in the signal chain.

PRECISION 8, with its sonically pure design, simple-to-use features, and unparalleled cost/performance value, is the ultimate solution for state-of-the-art digital recording studios and project studios.

 

• Eight highly transparent solid state microphone preamps in a 1 unit rack configuration

• Challenges the recognized leaders in sonic accuracy and performance

• Built-in M-S (Mid-Side) decoding for creative spatial image control

• Active, high-impedance instrument inputs ("DI's") selectable on two channels

• 5-segment level indicators with peak-hold feature and selectable peak reference

• Smooth continuous gain controls

• Easy interface to MDM's, HDR's, DAW's, or consoles

• Dual DB25/TRS outputs for flexible interconnection

• Elegant, sturdy physical design

• Exceptional cost per channel value

 

DESIGN APPROACH
PRECISION 8 uses a high-voltage composite architecture with discrete devices plus integrated circuits. It offers very low noise and distortion as well as high headroom. The totally balanced dual-servo design eliminates nearly all capacitors in the audio path and is DC-coupled at the output. All of this results in a very detailed and transparent sound quality which challenges even the most esoteric microphone preamps.

Everyone loves a classic, and this Double Humbucker Suhr Classic in a Black Cherry finish, is a wonderful tip-of-the-hat to the double-cutaway style of guitars that has shaped Blues, and Rock and Roll for generations.

This latest guitar from John Suhr, and Co., truly provides the versatility of an all-in-one style Electric Guitar, giving you that singing solo tone, while very much being a rhythm instrument, coupling clarity with punch. The humbuckers are split into one SSV and one SSH+, with a surprising amount of chime for a double humbucker, but few can split humbuckers like John Suhr.

The new Klon KTR is directly compared with a Klon Centaur Silver Edition in this drive pedal demo video. Much has been said about the Klon Centaur, many have thrown their respective "two-cents" in about this contentious, but undeniably legendary guitar pedal. These days, the only place to find the mythical item is on auction sites, for what some would refer to as, a lot of money for "just a guitar pedal". Without entering into the ongoing debate on the pedal's quality or price, we prefer to just tell you about what Klon is doing nowadays. Klon released their newest pedal, the KTR Overdrive, earlier this year and they are already in limited supply across the country, and waiting lists are filling up as we speak. One of the main differences in the newest addition to the Klon line is the price, with the KTR selling for almost a third of the price that the originals are now fetching on eBay and similar communities. But, the KTR also offers a switch to change the pedal from Buffered Output Mode to True Bypass Mode, whereas the older versions of the Centaur only offered Buffered Output. In many other respects these pedals share a lot of similarities, they both still offer that classic Klon manipulation of gain without sacrificing the natural tone of the guitar, but we will let your ears be the judge! If you have any questions about the much talked about Klon Pedals compared, or any other gear used in the video, call SoundPure today, and we would be happy to help 919-682-5552!   Gear Used: Tuttle Standard Classic S 3-Tone SB Electric Guitar, Vovox Cables, Klon Centaur Silver Overdrive Pedals, Klon KTR Overdrive Pedal, Nolatone Rotten Johnny Amp, Royer 121 Mics, True Systems P8 Preamp, Lynx Aurora AD Converter

Jim Soloway has been making hand-crafted guitars that provide something a little different than your normal electric guitar, and this iteration of the Soloway Swan is no exception. Fitted with a longer 27-inch scale length, and a longer neck to fit the larger scale-length, hence the "Swan" moniker. This guitar is also very unique in using Oregon Myrtle for the top-wood, something you don't see too often, but also provides some really full-bodied and transparent tonal qualities specific to this kind of wood. With such a larger scale length, and a longer neck, it would be easy to say that playing this guitar would be more difficult to do when using complicated chords or intervals, but that is not the case at all. Even at the bottom of the neck, those tricky chords and spaced out intervals can still be easily reached with the Swan's thin neck profile, flat fingerboard radius and larger frets to accomodate the player with the added length in scale. Also, with the added length the Swan from Soloway Guitars operates great in lower tunings, but is actually intended to be played in standard tunings, to really achieve the presence, articulation and clarity that defines this beautiful guitar. Thanks to our very own Electric Guitar Expert Jared for helping us to show how great this Soloway can really sound. Call SoundPure today for any questions about this gorgeous Electric Guitar from Soloway Guitars, or about any other gear used in this video 919-682-5552. Gear Used: Soloway Swan G179 - Oregon Myrtle Original LN6 Electric Guitar, Vovox Sonorus Instrument Cable, Moog MF-104 Analog Delay Pedal, Little Walter 1X12 Tweed Cabinet + Little Walter 22 Watt Tweed Amplifier Head, Royer 121 Microphone, True Systems P8 Preamp, Lynx Aurora A/D Converter
