ME-1NV :Modernizing Vintage Sound

A single channel microphone preamp that is designed to give the classic '70's vintage sound all of today's iron and performance standards! This desktop preamp unit brings to the table all of the integrity, accuracy, and sound 'tunability' as its predecessor, the MP-2NV. The ME-1NV breaks the barrier of entry for professional sound performance on a home or project studio budget.

Vintage Sound Benefits

  • Iron in the signal path for that 'Big Vintage Sound'
  • 'no-latency' output monitoring provides a buffered sound feed to a DAW workstation
  • High-Z input is ideal to shape the sound for bass, electric guitar, and sound modules
  • Dual metering provides visual monitoring of gain staging
  • Ultra quiet noise floor with 'stealth' performance for rich, textured vocal sounds


Simply put, the EQ-1NV is a one channel digitally-controlled, analog-driven equalizer that has a topology similar to that of vintage 1081/1083 models. Modern improvements enable the newly-designed class A, discrete single-ended amplifiers in the NV Series Equalizers to add greater clarity and dynamic range to the musicality and control of the vintage 108x models. The EQ-1NV has been specifically designed to work with the NV Series microphone preamplifiers' patch loop to offer greater flexibility in both tracking and mixing environments. The front panel input selector and sensitivity switch offers the option of using the EQ-1NV's balanced bridging transformer coupled input with a range from +8dbm to -20dbm or the companion NV Series preamplifiers' patch loop signal. When connected via the NV Series preamplifier patchpoint, the microphone and DI inputs are fully functional, as well as the level control, metering and "big iron" of the NV Series preamplifier output amplifier. The EQ-1NV also has a discrete class A balanced output stage, which allows it to function as a complete stand-alone device.
