Manufacturer's Description from Great River

The new PWM-501 employs some fairly mythical options, offering the engineer tons of ways to shape signal, on everything from tracking individual elements, stereo mic setups, all the way to the stereo mix bus.
 
The compression range and palette of sounds that can be found with the 501 is virtually infinite. With its Feed-Forward and Feed-Back Control, you have two completely different sounding compressors. If you need aggressive transient shaping for drums and percussion instruments, just dial in your desired amount of compression with Feed-Forward mode. Or use Feedback mode for a seriously round and warm response on things like drum overheads, bass and vocals. You can dial in the perfect amount of glue for anything you want. It is a sweetly enhancing sound, that is well suited for all-duty workhorse compression.

About Manufacturer

Great River Electronics Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets superior quality professional audio products that are built to perform and capture your sound with integrity, character, and accuracy. The company has an experience base in excess of twenty years in analog and digital domains of audio processing. In addition, the company also designs industrial control systems used in commercial applications. Great River Electronics Inc. is located just southeast of the capital city St. Paul, Minnesota. Dan Kennedy, co-founder of Great River Electronics Inc., began designing microphone preamplifiers to solve noise problems associated with recording orchestral music using ribbon microphones. Intelligence, perseverance, and passion yielded product designs that are supremely quiet, clearly transparent, and extremely musical across all musical genres and tracking formats. The combination of crystal clear high-end coupled with tight, solid low-end result in precise, full sounds that realize their natural sonic positions within any mix. In addition, Dan has designed an equalizer, EQ-2NV and EQ-1NV, to complement the NV Series preamplifiers or to function as a standalone equalizer. The design philosophy at Great River Electronics Inc. has always been to utilize the minimum circuitry necessary to provide maximum sonic performance. Legendary Jensen and Sowter transformers optimized for Great River Electronics Inc. are used in all microphone preamplifiers. In addition, all units are equipped with gold plated switch contacts, operate on externally switched 110 or 220 volts, and have a standard two-year warranty with registration. These preamplifiers are widely used internationally in professional recording studios, digital project studios, and road recording rigs. The units are designed as perfect front-end additions to digital audio workstations (DAWs). Two design types of preamplifiers are currently available - Original MP Series, the clean series, and the newly developed NV Series, the vintage sound series. The Original MP Series, the MP-2 and the MP-4, are two channel and four channel units that offer the most pristine, definitive sound clarity and accuracy available today. These units have optional output transformers to isolate and balance the signal. The NV Series, featuring the MP-2NV and the ME-1NV, modernize vintage sound. Both units are tunable preamplifiers that offer the same definitive sound and solid craftsmanship as all Great River Electronics preamplifiers with the ability to 'tune that sound' a la 1970's 1073's. The equalizers, EQ-2NV (two channel) and EQ-1NV (one channel), are loosely based on the topology of vintage 1081/1083 models. The newly-designed class A, discrete single-ended amplifiers in the EQ-NV Series bring greater clarity and dynamic range to the musicality and control of the 108x models. The EQ-2NV and EQ-1NV use the same internal components and have identical and stunning sonic performance capabilities. Great River Electronics Inc. understands the needs, demands, and mission of today's busy recording professionals - produce great music with great sounds and great performances accurately articulated and meticulously defined every time.

Great River has taken a familiar design and in a lot of ways improved upon it. When it comes to sound, the often unwieldy low-mids that a classic 1073 (or 1073 clone) will tend to have is much tighter and punchier with the Great River preamp. These preamps are available for SoundPure's Try-Before-You-Buy Program, so if you want to hear how they sound in your studio with your gear, shoot us an email at ProAudio@SoundPure.com, or give us a call anytime at 919.682.5552.
