Better Vocals Are Easy with This Bundle

Your vocal recordings will be off to a great start with this PreSonus RC 500 and Blue Baby Bottle Bundle. The RC 500 channel strip gives you the same FET compressor and EQ found in PreSonus' flagship ADL 700 preamp, which has earned acclaim for transparent, detailed sound and ultra-low distortion and noise. The versatile Baby Bottle mic is a popular mic around Sweetwater for recording vocals, but its upfront sound and wide response make it ideal for a wide range of sounds. You'll have a sweet recording chain at a great low price with this Presonus RC 500 and Blue Baby Bottle Bundle.

Presonus RC 500 and Blue Baby Bottle Bundle at a Glance:
  • A superb-sounding preamp
  • Refined, musical equalization
  • Great-sounding FET compressor
  • Crystal Clear Sonic Clarity
A superb-sounding preamp

Solid-state or tube, that is the question. At Sweetwater, we know that each has its place in a well-rounded studio. Compared with a tube preamp, the PreSonus RC 500's solid-state preamp gives you better definition at the low and high extremes of its frequency response range. The lows are tighter, and the highs crisper, giving you a transparent-sounding, eminently musical signal with plenty of "air."

Refined, musical equalization

The PreSonus RC 500's 3-band semi-parametric EQ was specifically designed to match the preamp and compressor. Sporting isolated filters and optimized, per-band Q, this equalizer lets you shape your signal subtly and without undesirable artifacts. This EQ even comes with a pedigree: it uses the same circuitry as the semi-parametric EQ in the ADL 700, which has garnered rave reviews.

Great-sounding FET compressor

With fully variable attack, release, and threshold controls (as well as hard bypass), the PreSonus RC 500's FET compressor gives you tons of flexibility without letting you get into too much trouble. What we mean is that it's hard to make this thing sound bad. Again, the compressor design is the one found in the coveted ADL 700 - so it's already a winner, right from the get-go.

Crystal Clear Sonic Clarity

The Baby Bottle's electronics are Class A discrete, with transformerless output. In plain English, this means that the sound which arrives at the diaphragm is transduced (converted to electrical energy) is as accurate as possible, with minimal coloration with no integrated circuits in the signal path. The Baby Bottle's overall sonic character is neutral and especially rich in midrange response, making it an ideal microphone for recording vocals, drums, electric guitar and most acoustic instruments including "difficult" sources like saxophones, flutes, and stringed instruments. In addition, the Baby Bottle has extremely low self-noise specs, coupled with an exceptionally high output level.

Presonus RC 500 and Blue Baby Bottle Bundle Features:
  • Transformer-coupled, high gain microphone preamp with a Class A hybrid design
  • FET-based soft-knee compressor using hybrid detection methods with switching relays for hard bypass
  • 3-band semi-parametric equalizer with switching relays for hard bypass
  • 48V phantom power, 80Hz highpass filter, and -20dB pad
  • Front-panel instrument and rear-panel microphone and line inputs with Input Select switch
  • Multipurpose Mic - ideal for classic lead vocal, brass, and string instruments
  • Cardioid condenser Class A discrete circuitry
  • Blue's famous hand-built large diaphragm capsule
  • Up-front sound - robust lows, detailed mid-range, and an accurate presence
  • Hand-tuned and tested
  • Includes cherry wood storage box, velvet bag, and mic clip
Equip your studio with the value-packed PreSonus RC 500 and Blue Baby Bottle Bundle!
