BAE 1073DMP Desktop Mic Pre and DI.
We recently picked up a 1073DMP for our studio and as a smaller commercial studio focused on radio and TV advertising, we don’t have the space or the budget for a giant vintage console, so the DMP has been a great way for us to get some of that classic sound into our modern digital studio. BAE is known for recreating classic Neve preamps and eq’s and capturing that GIANT neve sound. It’s definitely been designed with musicians in mind. It has a “brick-style” desktop design with a built-in power supply and a small footprint. The DI has two thus so you can send to an amp and tuner at the same time. It is built with the same Class-A Mic Preamplifier used in other BAE 1073 modules and delivers a great VO sound. The DI is impressive, with a Jensen input transformer (the “Bootsy Mod”) It lets the lows come through like nothing I’ve ever heard before. During tracking sessions bassists always have to stop and ask, “What are you running me though?” and then say “This sounds amazing!” It’s quickly found its place here in the studio and has become my staple bass DI.
