What We Think

With the popularity of the 500 series, Dallas is now offering his 1073 clones in the Lunchbox format.  He painstakingly designed the 573’s preamp to be as accurate to the original Neve 1073 as the rest of his preamp line.  With a front panel DI, both line and mic level inputs, and the tonal flexibility that comes with independent input and output gain control, this is one of the most versatile 500 series modules on the market.  If you have an open spot on your rack, or are in need of a few more channels of 1073 preamps, don’t miss out on the Vintech 573!

Vintech Audio 573 Preamp on Drums - Neve 1073 Clone

The new "500" series of Vintech Microphone Preamplifiers, presents a modern take on the classic Neve 1073 module, and in this video we are focusing on the Vintech 573 Model used in our "OAK" sessions. SoundPure's own Pro Audio Expert Doug Wessling details the functions, and utility of these stellar preamp's, with special attention to how we used them to track a full drum kit during our session. A transformer balanced microphone preamp, the Vintech 573 provides all discrete high impedance D.I., that passes through the input transformer. If you are interested in the individual drum track, or any other Hi-Res audio files featured in this or any of our other videos, please email preamps@soundpure.com for any questions about the recording chain or anything else you would like to know.
