By PSW Staff • September 26, 2012 The new JDK V10 mic preamp and V12 compressor modules for 500 Series JDK Audio, the brand developed and engineered by API, has introduced the new V10 single-channel mic preamp and the V12 single-channel compressor, built in accordance with API’s 500 Series modular lunchbox format. The V10’s circuit is identical to a single channel of the JDK R20 mic preamp, and the V12’s circuit is identical to a single channel of the JDK R22 compressor (itself a replica of the famed inline compressor on ATI Paragon consoles). “JDK is all about sonic integrity, a great pedigree and extraordinary value,” says Larry Droppa, president and owner of API. “As with all JDK Audio products, the V10 and V12 feature the same build quality and five-year warranty for which API products have been famous for decades.” JDK’s V10 is a fully-featured mic preamp, with 54 dB of mic-level gain, 45 dB of instrument-level gain, padding, phantom power, and phase inversion. The JDK V12 offers the patented “Thrust” circuit that preserves high-frequency content even under aggressive compression settings and is paired with responsive threshold, ratio, knee, and gain makeup controls. MSRP is a $695 for each unit. API Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
