2 Channel Mic Pre with Power Supply
(formerly Brent Averill Enterprises) 1073MPF is basically a deluxe 1073MP. lt
has all the same qualities as the 1073MP with one added feature, a high pass
filter. We integrated the same inductor based high pass filter that's in the
1073 and added it here to the 1073MPF.

level control serves as gain trim between the 5 dB steps on gain switch
mic input and balanced +4 dB output are on XLR connectors off the rear of the
line input is achieved through the LN switch on the front.

preamp yields a really fat sound. It seems to add subharmonics to the low end
which makes the bottom end sound huge. It smoothes the top end, giving the
highs a silky sheen. The BAE 1073
slightly compresses transients, as well.
It is a smooth, fat, larger than life sound. An added bonus is to use the front-panel DI
inputs to fatten samples and synths and instruments. Balanced line-level inputs on the rear allow
for fattening and punching up entire mixes, or in a signal chain with other +4
gain knob (red Marconi) around 20 on the dial and set the output (grey knob)
fully clockwise. This gives you the highest headroom and cleanest signal path. Every
click is in 5db increments so if one click is too hot, attenuate the output to
get inbetween the 5db steps.
trick people like to do is to put the final mix through the balanced line
inputs on the back to get that harmonic distortion. To get even more of that
Class A output stage is to come out of channel 1 and into channel 2 then you
have an accumulative effect of that classic output stage.
