Universal Audio 4-710d Twin-Finity

The 4-710d is a four-channel tone-blending "Twin-Finity" preamps and 1176-style compression with Built-In A/D Converters.

The Universal Audio 4-710d is a boutique quality, four-channel microphone/line preamplifier with unique tube and solid-state tone blending capabilities - perfect for a wide range of microphone and instrument sources. This versatile multi-channel preamp offers selectable 1176-style compression circuitry on each channel, plus four additional line inputs feeding eight channels of pristine analog-to-digital conversion. Building upon UA's classic analog design approach, combined with smart modern features, the 4-710d is the most flexible preamp in the UA lineup.

At the core of the 4-710d are four channels of tone-blending "Twin-Finity" mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression, including specially tuned "fast" and "slow" settings. Each of the four mic preamp channels allows for continuously variable phase-aligned tone, between a 100% tube and 100% solid-state signal path. Send and return jacks are available for external processing or signal access.

    Great box and a central part of my 5.1 Post Audio Studio
    I got this as part of a deal a few years ago and am still leaning on it as my go-to box. I track a lot of voiceover and ADR through it. Its digital output is synched perfectly to my HD OMNI via word clock. One of the most amazing features-- I actually have this wired into my rack to take full advantage- is its ability to mix external sources into the outputs. This extends the box from a 4 input device to essentially an 8 input device. I habitually dial the mic press between transistor and tube to get exactly what I want. i don't know of any other piece of gear that can do this.

    Vraiment surpris et content.
    J'avais acheté un Twin Finity 710 au départ pour ajouter à ma collection, en espérant tirer profit du Tone Blending, à titre de "couteau suisse" qu'on utilise à toutes les sauces. J'ai une collection exhaustive de préamps et processeurs. Conquis, j'ai rapidement commandé la version à quatre canaux et limiter. Je ne vois aucun micro qui ne puisse en bénéficier. De mes U87 de 1969 à mes Shure SM-57, tout passe bien tant en transparence que si l'on souhaite une sonorité un peu glorifiée, mais sous contrôle fin.

    Au final, j'ai acquis quatre excellents canaux dans un ensemble compact, versatile et d'emploi facile. Même avec 35 ans d'expérience, j'apprécie avoir un setup rapide et les contrôles regroupés, question d'éviter les embrouilles. Je n'ai pas utilisé l?interface ADAT, mais c'est aussi une option pour l'avenir, lorsque je réduirai mes activités. Si vous n'avez qu'un seul préampli à acheter, c'est le bon à juste prix. J'ai pu laisser aller d'autres appareils et ne conserver que les indispensables. Le UA 4-710D me fournit la base nécessaire à tout enregistrement, tout en ajoutant une assez vaste palette de possibilités sonores.

    Great sound, really versatile
    Love this piece!

    I was doing some production for a folk group and the option to blend between a transformer and a tube really gave me an array of color. Sounds really nice when you drive them too. Love the compression and am really happy with my purchase.

    Thanks SE!
