The API 512V is a low-noise 500-series microphone, Line and instrument with API's traditional 2520 Op amp, providing 65dB of clean gain.

The API 512V is an update of the legendary 512 mic preamp adding Line level input and a variable output level control. The 512V allows you to add the API mojo to your music. Additional features include a switchable 3:1 output transformer.  It also boasts the usual phantom power, polarity switch and a -20dB pad.

With a combo (XLR/ 1/4" Jack) connector on the front and the existing XLR socket of your 500 Series chassis makes it easy to connect in any situation.

You can use the 512V as a traditional microphone or instrument preamplifier during the recording stage, or use a pair on a bus or summing while the transformer stage can add punch and colour at the mastering stage.
