Description

You may only need a couple of mic preamps, but they need to be the very best. The ISA Two dual-mono mic pre is the ideal solution: two independent channels of the highest quality classic Focusrite mic pres, with line in and front-panel instrument inputs – no DI box required. Based on the legendary designs found in the Focusrite Forte and Studio Consoles, ISA Two is the ideal front-end for your rack. The ISA Two delivers up to 80 dB of low-noise gain. Each channel has balanced insert points, variable high-pass filter and variable input impedance. Line, microphone and high impedance (DI) sources can be connected, allowing easy DAW integration. Each channel's high-pass filter has a variable cut-off frequency of 16 to 420 Hz selected from the front panel and has an attenuation of 18 dB/Octave - the same design as used in the ISA110 module introduced during the 80's. The high pass filter, phase-invert, insert point and phantom power can all be switched in and out per channel using front panel controls. Eight-segment LED arrays provide clear metering of both signals, and a calibration knob on the rear panel allows lining up of analogue signal levels to prevent clipping and optimize your signal path to any DAW or recording system. Focusrite ISA Two main features include: Transformer-based mic preamplifiers Variable input impedance Up to 80 dB of clean, low-noise gain Variable cut-off high-pass filter Eight-segment user-calibrated LED meter per channel Two front panel instrument inputs Dedicated per-channel insert point 1U 19" rack-mount format

Do I need something better than Antelope?

It’s very unlikely your conversion is your weak link. That could be a stock answer for most of these threads!

suggest me a pre amp around $1k

The SM7b and ISA One is a good combo (or a ISA Two used). When SOS did the fabulous famous drum room piece they chose ISA 828 for solid reasons, great sound but clean but not too sterile....kind of a desert island pre at a good price. The Daking would be a different flavor...
