Una tempesta di "Neve" e di suono
control d, 23.09.2020
recensire questa macchina è pressoché inutile, un prodotto perfetto, peccato non riuscire ad acquistarne di più per via del costo non facilmente accessibile. Prendendo qualche specifica tecnica qui e li in rete ci si accorge, che per chi conosce già questo nome, il 4081 è un preamplificatore costruito seguendo la linea dei leggendari 1073 e 1081, è un prodotto abbastanza intuitivo grazie al pannello di controllo essenziale e dallo stile minimale. In modalità microfono, l'escursione del range di azione della caratteristica manopola rossa va da 20 a 70 dB con un incremento di 5 dB, mentre nella modalità in linea, il range è ridotto a 0-20 dB, il tutto viene visualizzato nei display a led, quindi un segnale d'ingresso verde se il segnale è superiore a –30dBu e rosso se è a + 24dBu. Il Quadpre collegato con un cavo usb offre anche un suo alter ego virtuale, per un'ulteriore gestione tramite software per Mac e Pc. Cosa dire dal punto di vista sensoriale? In modalità microfono il suono intenso e caldo lascia all'orecchio il sapore di tutte le armoniche, mentre lo trovo diretto e preciso nella modalità in linea. Unica pecca del prodotto è la mancanza di un ingresso fisico per tutto ciò che andrebbe in linea. A mio avviso avrebbero potuto dedicare almeno due dei quattro canali alla modalità in linea utilizzando dei connettori xrl combinati con un jack, per intenderci gli stessi utilizzati per il Neve 1073 opx, ma d'altronde il nome del prodotto parla da sé in modo didascalico non lasciando troppo spazio ad altre libere interpretazioni della parola "preamplificatore microfonico".
