The new Rane VP 12 mic preamplifier features built-in signal processing.
The input can switch from a mic in with 48 V phantom power to a separate line input or a sum of both. The unit features sweepable high and low cut filters, a de-esser, a gate/expander, a compressor and two bands of full range parametric equalization.
Any processor section can be bypassed and rear panel jumpers allow for reconfiguring the order of processing. A pair of individual output level controls feed calibrated output meters and pairs of balanced three-pin and screw terminals.
The VP 12 has a retail price of $599.
