The EM-Red has the extra kick you need with a mic that lacks present midrange (such as the mid-scooped Chinese capsules), or for bringing an instrument forward in the mix.

A-Design 500-Series components.

One of the most integral components in preamp design is the transformer, which uses the voltage to process the sound and also keeps it from adding noise to the ultimate resulting signal. How those transformers are wound, using any of a choice of metal alloys, directly impacts the color of the sound, giving it a particular personality. Modern transformers can be "transparent," coming out of the preamp with little or no change from how it sounded on the way in, or it could be given a certain amount of "color." How alloys like treated steel, nickel, cobalt and iron, are  combined in the windings plays a crucial role in the character in the resulting sound the preamp puts out.

A-Designs Audio has created five 500 Series preamps with different character, making each of them useful for particular uses, depending on your preferences.   You can customize your 500 Series mounting rack with any or all of A-Designs' preamps or other 500 series components, giving you a broad selection of treatments for a broad selection of sources.

The EM-Red is the “mid-forward” member of the EM family. It derives its distinctive tone from a combination of an A-Designs proprietary input transformer featuring a unique winding, and a custom wound steel/nickel-wound output transformer (also a proprietary A-Designs alloy ratio).  The upfront mids of the EM-Red make it ideal for drums, guitar, bass guitar, and acoustic instruments….in fact, you will find the EM-Red particularly useful when recording acoustic guitar with a condenser microphone. It’s also great for bringing out the resonance and character of rack and floor toms.
