  • Preamplifier with amplification of 66dB (gain 60dB + output +6dB)
  • Gain on operational amplifier, build of discrete elements
  • Gain control without mechanic contacts
  • Original saturation unit adding low order harmonic frequencies, working also like soft limiter
  • 2 LEDs indicating signal saturation level (4% and 8% THD)
  • Instrument input, Hi-Z, on the front panel (impedance of 1M ohm), build of discrete elements
  • 3 LEDSs indicating output level

SATurAMP is one of a kind microphone / instrument preamplifier, equipped with an original saturation unit in rack 500 format. Due to this unique combination SATurAMP is a universal and creative tool, allowing the powerful sound, with great detail preservation, just while recording.

Not only incorporates SATurAMP solutions inspired by designs from the 60s, but also many original, modern ones, including digital control over the majority of functions. This particular solution allowed to eliminate the mechanic switches from the signal path, what considerably influenced the reliability and endurance of SATurAMP. The mechanic elements were replaced with hermetic relays and semiconductor switches.

On input in SATurAMP there is a SOWTER transformer based on the AP2620, found in legendary API preamps. The operating amplifier, build entirely of discrete elements, is responsible for amplification. Design refers to early operating amps from the 60s. However the solution of gain regulation comes from XXI century its digitally controlled via micro buttons. The amplification value, expressed in dB, is shown on digital display.
