Low Noise Preamp for Microphones and Pickups

The Pre module allows the embedding of signals from electro dynamic sound sources such as microphones or pickups (e.g. e-guitars) in modular synthesizer equipment. Its high amplification together with a very low noise floor allows the processing of even very low input signals (such as from dynamic microphones). The module is equipped with a ‚Sensitivity‘ knob to adapt it to different input levels, coming from different pickups or microphones. There is a 2nd minijack/banana input which may be alternatively used instead of the 1/4′ jack input; it will be switched off when a plug is applied to the main input jack.
 A red LED indicates when the level is overdriven, causing the signal to become saturated; here the preamp soft clips the signal. Additionally, a trimmer on the back of the module allowes the setting of the max. output gain – between 3Vpp and 18Vpp. Further, there is a jumper to optionally supply an electret microphone with +12V power supply, provided on the middle ring of a 3-pole jack.
