|RANE DMS 22 2-Channel Microphone Preamp|
The DMS 22 is a dual channel studio-grade microphone stage with equalization and a stereo mixer. Perfect for studio recording in direct-to-tape or hard disk applications, the audio quality surpasses that found in most professional mixing consoles.
The DMS 22 is useful in installations when comprehensive mic equalization is required. Each XLR microphone Input features switchable 48v Phantom Power, Polarity Invert switch, and Input Gain control. Balanced, line-level 1/4" TRS Outputs with Level controls are provided for each Channel. Pan controls (defeatable) send to a separate XLR stereo pair of Mix Outputs, allowing a stereo mix of the two microphones when hard left/right is not appropriate.
A 3-band Equalizer on each Channel offers a broad palette of tonal control (activated with the EQ Engage switch). Accelerated-Slope (U.S. Patent 5,046,105) tone controls provide steep phase-corrected slopes that eliminate most of the traditional interaction between shelving and midband controls. Shelving frequencies are switch selectable for High (7 kHz and 12 kHz) and Low (50 Hz and 100 Hz) controls. A parametric Mid band provides sweepable frequency and selectable bandwidth. Each Output features a selectable 15/50/100 Hz Low Frequency Filter to remove mic bumps and rumble that might otherwise overload a good recording.
