The Universal Audio M610 is mono version of the 2-610 , with a
simplified EQ section. Other than that, the sound and features are
identical to the 2-610. It has the same vibrant high frequency response
and deep, gorgeous low end that has graced countless recordings and
continues Universal Audio’s reputation for sonic excellence.
Designed by Bill Putnam, the Universal Audio 610 was among the first
modular recording consoles. Early Universal Audio consoles were used in
all of Putnam's studios including Universal Recording in Chicago and
United Western in Los Angeles. Many prominent engineers such as Bruce
Swedien began their careers in these studios with this classic rotary
knob console. The UA 610 was particularly well noted for its
preamplifier, and has left its mark on countless classic recordings
from Sinatra to Pet Sounds to Van Halen to LA Woman .
We carefully modeled the UA M610 after the microphone amplifier
section of the 610 console. Unlike many vintage "style" mic pres, the
M610 is true to the design of its predecessor. Our expertise in analog
design translates into a classic tube preamplifier with all of the
character of its vintage predecessor, yet designed for the requirements
and rigor of the modern studio. We've taken great care to preserve the
quality and character of the original, while adding functionality with
more boost/cut settings, phantom power, direct inputs and impedance
The Universal Audio M610 Mic Pre is the perfect tool for tracking
and ideal when used in conjunction with a Universal Audio compressor
such as the 1176LN and Teletronix LA-2A. Whether you're running pure
analog or seeking to enhance your digital audio workstation, the M610
will bring classic tube character to your recording.
The affordable M610 is perfect for the pro and project studio.
