The article features the Pacifica Microphone Preamp from A-Designs Audio. It emulates the tonal character and quality of the original 1970s-era Quad Eight Ventura console. The Pacifica is a no-nonsense, solid-state dual mono stereo preamp that meets all the professional requirements of a stand-alone, single-space, rackmounted unit. It also exhibits enough color in the low and midrange to give recordings a great character.
