Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording products announce the 4-710D Four-Channel Mic Preamp and DI w/ Dynamic, revealed at Musikmesse 2010.

New Analog Hardware Boasts Four Tone-Blending Mic Preamps Variable between Tube and Solid State Plus Classic 1176-Style Compression & Pristine A/D Conversion.

Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording products, today announced a new addition to its award-winning line of premium analog recording hardware.

4-710D Four-Channel 'Twin-finity' Mic Preamp & DI with Dynamics.

As the newest member of UA's popular analog product lineup, the 4-710D combines UA's classic design approach with several modern innovations creating a unique studio device suited to a wide range of applications.

At the core of the 4-710D are four channels of tone-blending 'Twin-finity' mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression. Based on the original award-winning 710 Twin-Finity preamp.

Favored by engineers including Al Schmitt (Jackson Browne, Dr. John, Diana Krall) and Matt Boudreau (The Samples, Sean O?Brien) each of the four mic preamp channels allows for continuously variable tone between 100% tube and 100% solid-state.

Other notable 4-710D features include: Newly designed 1176-style compression/soft-limiting circuit per mic channel, Eight channels of high-quality 24-Bit, 192kHz A/D conversion, Digital output via dual ADAT optical or AES/EBU DB-25.

Monolithic balanced output stage, Balanced send/return inserts.

"While UA enjoys a reputation for classic hand-built analog equipment, we're not content to live in the past," commented Universal Audio President Matt Ward.

"The 4-710D is another example of us pushing forward, giving customers modern conveniences like high-quality digital outputs, and the ability to blend between tube and solid state tones a feature not available anywhere else. "

"The 4-710D is the result of several Universal Audio technologies converging into a great product," offered 4-710D Product Manager, Lev Perrey.

"Ultimately, the 4-710D is a fantastic addition to any mic preamp arsenal, and we believe customers will be amazed by its awesome balance of classic tone and flexibility."
