Focusrite has announced the return of the legendary Red Series mic preamp – in a new incarnation designed to fit the “Lunchbox” (aka “500 Series”) portable rack system.

Focusrite’s Red Range gained legendary status following its release in 1993. With original circuitry designed by Rupert Neve for Air Studios, the Red mic preamp rapidly became one of the most sought-after mic preamps with the world’s top studios for its unique signature sound and ability to handle almost any microphone.

Built in the UK and featuring the original circuit and components used in the first Red mic preamp designs, the Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre offers the performance of the original Focusrite Red microphone preamplifier in a new, popular format: the 500 series, or “Lunchbox” portable modular system.

The Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre, with its curved anodised aluminium red front panel, is perfect for those who remember the stunning sound of the original Focusrite Red range, and wish to bring that signature sound into the modern studio. With a custom-wound Lundahl LL1538 input and Carnhill output transformer, just as in the original; switchable phantom power; polarity invert; and an easily-read illuminated VU meter the Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre offers a compact interface to digital recording as well as convenient access in any control room. The output stage of the Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre will easily drive long cable runs – up to several metres – without significant loss of quality, making the Red 1 500 Series Mic Pre ideal for remote recordings. Mic gain is switched with a Grayhill gold-plated military-grade switch in 6dB steps from -6 to +60dB, for accurate, precise channel matching and recall.
