The MPEQ-1 is the amalgamation of the UTA EQ and our new custom mic pre.  It features the same flexible and musical Class A discrete circuitry, the uniquely powerful HP/LP filters, and an exciting new approach to a Class A mic pre.  You can use the equalizer and the mic pre separately or as a complete channel strip.  The mic pre has a custom input transformer and a carefully chosen output transformer. Both are optimized to accentuate the most flattering sonic qualities inherent in audio transformers.  The unique mic pre design makes both of these transformers bypass-able.  This offers users a choice between the detailed clarity of a Class-A transformer-less design or the vintage musicality of a dual transformer mic preamp.
