All-tube Preamp/DI with Classic UA Sound
The SOLO/610 mic preamp/DI box from Universal Audio brings the best of their preamp designs to a single-channel format. The SOLO series features the solid build and audiophile components that define UA quality. Its portable form factor is convenient for use in the studio and control room, onstage, and on your desktop. The all-tube SOLO/610 imparts its alluring, characteristic warmth to all your digital recordings. Vocals take on new life; direct bass sounds huge and round; drums sound fat and punchy. Take it from Sweetwater: if you want to make great-sounding music, you need the right front end: the Universal Audio SOLO/610.
Classic Putnam Sound in a portable package
The SOLO/610 delivers the classic Putnam 610 console sound in a single channel format with a rugged, highly versatile form factor, at a price every project studio can afford. Unlike stationary rack gear, the portable "go anywhere" design of the SOLO/610 makes it perfect for laying down great-sounding tracks at home, in the studio, and on the road. Functionally lean but sonically mean, the SOLO/610 was carefully created to maintain all of the character of its vintage predecessor and has the same solid build and audiophile components professionals expect from UA.
Vintage sound, modern flexibility
The SOLO/610 gives you extended-range, continuous Gain and Level controls for precise gain staging that yields a versatile sonic palette ranging from warm cleans to tasty vintage coloration. The SOLO/610 delivers all the essentials: a classic Putnam 610 console mic pre with switchable 48V phantom power, direct instrument input, highpass filter, polarity reverse, and flexible dual impedance selection for Mic and DI inputs. For maximum flexibility, the SOLO/610 also includes a convenient DI throughput plus a Ground Lift and a Line/Mic level output switch.
