DiscretePro Preamps.

Discrete Pro mic preamps have been specifically designed to provide pristine high gain with extremely low noise and a signal-to-noise ratio of -129dBu EIN resulting in virtually no audible noise even when the level is set to the max. 

Through careful design and the shortest signal path with a reduced number of capacitors, the preamp stage achieves very low distortion figures, -107.9 dB THD+N ensuring maximum transparency. Furthermore, the DiscretePro preamps have a ruler-flat frequency response between 20Hz and 20kHz with +/- 0.02 dB difference. In fact, the response remains flat from 20Hz all the way to 250kHz.

Arturia AudioFuse DiscretePro Mic preamp data

Discrete Pro mic preamps can easily accommodate line-level instruments too as each DiscretePro mic pre comprises of two distinct preamps ensuring optimum performance at all times.

You can now capture every detail of your instrument accurately and transparently, with virtually no artefacts.
