Fiel y versátil
Borja R., 04.01.2014
Este previo proporciona un sonido excelente, la característica más destacable es que nos ofrece una gran versatilidad, haciéndolo muy adecuado para estudios pequeños dónde no se puede contar con varios previos para obtener el mejor resultado en cada toma, el Europa 1 nos brinda casi toda posibilidad.

El sonido es limpio, cristalino y su nivel de ruido bajísimo, aunque nos permite lograr sonidos muy variados. Es un previo diseñado para sonar limpio y no de otro modo, al pasar de 0 dB empieza a distorsionar, con lo que hay que tener cuidado al llegar al rojo.

El control SPEED es una herramienta muy útil, éste modifica la respuesta del previo a transitorios, pudiendo ajustarse en rápido, lento o en siete posiciones intermedias.
Un ajuste rápido proporciona transparencia al sonido mientras que un ajuste lento proporciona un sonido más grueso y menos brillante.

Los controles EVEN HARMONICS y ODD HARMONICS nos brindan la posibilidad de añadir armónicos pares e impares, respectivamente.
Éstas modificaciones son muy sutiles, los armónicos pares añaden grosor al sonido, mientras que los armónicos impares aportan brillo y presencia, además, según el fabricante, comprimen un poco la señal debido a la sobrecarga del amplificador, logrando un sonido más consistente.

Cabe destacar que todos los controles funcionan por pasos, lo cual resulta muy útil para anotar y repetir configuraciones.

Cuenta con un filtro de graves muy efectivo a 18 dB de caída y un medidor de altísima precisión.

En general se trata de un previo magnífico y sin duda es una de las mejores opciones en relación a su precio.

Einer der besten Preamps ,die ich benutzt habe !!! Nicht nur für Mikrofone alle Colour ,aber als DI für Seiteninstrumente bestens geeignet . Eigenartige Funktionen,wie Signaltyp Wahl (Hi-Z,Mid,Low) und Möglichkeit um gerade harmonische Verzerrung und ungerade harmonische Verzerrung zu zumischen finde ich genial.

Klare Empfehlung !
