TWIN DIRECT is a compact yet sophisticated analog recording front-end for electric guitars and basses, acoustic instrument transducers, keyboards, DAWs, and all MIDI systems. Add Millennia's acclaimed HV-3 microphone preamplifier and TD-1 becomes an uncompromised front-end for virtually any audio recording application. Some have called TD-1 a Mini-Origin!
Audio engineers no longer need to chose between tube front-end or solid state front-end. TWIN DIRECT's instrument input employs Twin Topology - Millennia's innovative merging of vacuum tube and solid state circuit topologies. TWIN DIRECT offers a high voltage 100% vacuum tube instrument amplifier -or- transparent 100% discrete F.E.T. solid state instrument amplifier in the same indestructible military-grade chassis. Both topologies can be switch selected and musically tuned via three selectable input impedances (470K / 2M / 10M). Up to 65 dB of adjustable microphone and instrument gain is available via front-panel control.
A simultaneous pair of patented REAMP outputs allow TD-1 to emulate both Les Paul and Strat pickups (Les Paul himself plays through a Millennia Origin). REAMP causes the guitar amplifier to think it's connected to a high impedance passive guitar pickup, instead of a very low impedance (and much too clean) active tape recorder or digital workstation output. Millennia's uncompromised DIT-01 mic-level DI output transformer (Frequency Response -3 dB @ 3 Hz & 300 kHz) is also included.
Recording directly from any guitar amplifier is now possible with Millennia's Speaker Soak™ technology. Simply connect any speaker output and start recording the authentic character of your guitar amplifier as it actually sounds at the speakers. An audiophile-grade headphone output with separate level control is also provided for pre-auditioning.
A fully sweepable NSEQ-style parametric equalizer (20 Hz - 25 kHz) provides an unlimited range of adjustable tonality. NSEQ is the same equalizer used by top mastering facilities around the globe. Ultra-transparent NSEQ bands are provided for high-resolution audio sculpting of instruments such as guitars, bass, and keyboards, or artistic and corrective work - adding "air" and "punch," removing "mud," and so forth - all with the smooth and artifact-free audio qualities that NSEQ is well known for.
