API Announces the New
3124V Microphone Preamp
API announces its new 3124V Microphone Preamp. Building on the
enormous success of the highly revered 3124+, the 3124V is essentially the same
unit, but provides two important additional features. First, the 3124V offers
front panel Variable Output Level Control, an extremely valuable addition given
today’s professional workflow. “This is a feature long requested by the pro
audio community, and we’re
happy to provide it in the 3124V,” says API’s President Larry Droppa.
the 3124V adds a switchable 3:1 output transformer selection, also on the front
panel. "The 3:1 Output Transformer selection switch allows the user to
alter how much gain comes from the different stages," explains API’s Director of Engineering Todd Humora.
"Do you want more transformer gain, or do you want more 2520 gain, or
both? You can choose exactly what you prefer, and then use the Variable Output
to make sure the level is where you want it.”
All other design aspects of the 3124V remain
identical to the 3124+, including the original circuitry, proprietary input and
output transformers, 2520 op amps, the unique 5 year warranty and, of course,
the unmistakable API sound. Units are now shipping. More information is
