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.

Really shines for rich midrange content
Every preamp has it's place, or perhaps more accurately, provides you with one.
I had been overlooking this unit, using it mainly for it's ability to insert other preamps and be used as an 8 channel ADAT interface with great clocking. The reason I shied away is that it always sounded kind of small to me compared to other units. Read more

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. Read more

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. Read more

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. Read more
