But I don't wanna read I just want to listen. ok ok...hit the player to the right.
I just like the name "Twin Finity". Sounds like an action hero duo, or maybe a fancy sushi roll. I am incredibly excited to have this piece of gear in the studio. For those that don't know, the Universal Audio 710 Twin Finity is a microphone preamp, also with a direct in for instruments, highlighted by a special feature "tone blending" knob. It was designed to be a neato studio weapon when you want to sculpt a particular sound with both solid state and tube options. Yay more knobs and buttons!!!
First impression, I am really...uh...impressed! It has a great natural crisp sound with the solid state, then a bit of warmth and punch on the tube side. With a dual gain structure, it gives way to an unlimited amount of options for sound shaping.
I found on the gain side you really heard the difference when you drove it. I did a little test that goes from solid state, to noon on blend knob, to all tube. Mic was my new Rode NT1a (U47/U87) Michael Joly Mod (super sweet), and no compression was added.
On the right is a little sample talking through the signal chain and the preamp. The pic is the 710 showing the settings during this recording. Now I want sushi...
