4 Mic Preamp Circuits means versatility
Covering the range from classic “British Class A-style” vintage tone to ultra-clean modern sparkle, the Slate Pro Audio Fox 2-channel microphone preamplifier is one of the most versatile mic pres out there. The way the Fox shapes tone is brilliant. There are two completely independent microphone preamplifier circuits in each of the Fox’s channels. The Vintage circuit calls up the sound of the legendary 1073-style preamp – warm, fat, and full of lush harmonics. Conversely, the Modern setting gives you a sparkling clean sound that’s perfect for capturing acoustic instruments in picture-perfect detail. What’s more, the Fox features two Combo modes, which combine the input and the output sections of both circuits, giving you a pair of completely unique preamp sounds.

“The Vintage topology has very definite overtones of a classic Neve 1073‑style preamp — obviously warm, ‘phat’, rounded and rich, with a solid, big‑bottomed character complemented by a smooth top‑end sheen. mode and 63dB for the Modern mode. These characteristics can be seen in the Audio Precision test plots we’ve placed on the SOS web site…”

“It’s a very robust, big bottom, warm sound that fits well with my production style. Definitely a special sound. I believe it’s supposed to be a 1073 type pre, and it definitely nods in that direction, but this sounds more… sophisticated? Refined? It makes everything I’ve thrown at it a little “bigger” than my other pres. Kind of hard to describe…”

“I have Fox #17 here and I have to agree, the vintage modes have a richness that is hard to describe, easy to appreciate, especially on voice. The sonic differences between the four options on each channel are subtle but distinct, and I suspect all four will get used here, including the modern mode, which sounds fast and tight but not sterile. Slate did a nice job with the Fox.”
