A lot of preamps on the market do a good job of raising the volume of mics and instruments.
With modern technology/design many pres are doing just that, raising volume.
The often proclaimed “Super clean” designs tend to leave the the signal exiting the preamp sounding much the same as it did entering it.
Warm Audio personally like to use a preamp that makes my recordings sound different than they did entering the pre.
Warm Audio like preamps that shape the tone with warmth, character and vibe.
If you are looking for a preamp to improve and shape your signal you will probably love the WA12.
The WA12 is designed to transform plain instruments and vocals into exciting tone.
If your mixes lack depth, struggle to sound alive, or are just missing that professional touch you’ve always wanted, there is a good chance you will love the WA12.
