The MP573 is this stunning 500-Series preamp designed by Jean-Pierre Kuhn of France, it is a two stages, single ended class A preamp, based on the design that was originally used in the Neve 1290/1073 modules, that has been adapted to the ‘500’ format of API.

Just install it in your API compatible Lunchbox rack and start recording.

The sound of the MP573, like its model is full, silky, detailed and musical, slightly larger than life, very complimentary to a digital recording environment.

The MP573 is great on vocals, acoustic instruments and generally all close miked sources that need to be pushed forward in the mix.
