I'm going to be that awful subjective sound engineer guy, I have Mick Hinton's DAV BG8 preamps that are loaded with the THAT mic amp IC and the line buffer, they're fabulous wide sounding preamps, please don't shoot me I'm just the end user,LOL!
I'm repeatedly told there's nothing special about Mick's design but we alway go back to them and I've got plenty of other supposedly cool things here to play with so there you go. Make of that what you will they're so cheap why not try both?
I believe THAT still has their own analog fabs, so all the THAT Corp. parts are custom THAT design, not rebranding any TI die.data sheets are extremely similar I just wonder if they are the same parts?
This part of the market is taken by their line of CMOS switches. See ADG419.I think I'd get the part numbers wrong. But, oddly enough, the switches controlled by logic level.
Charge pump inside IIRC. Much less fuss than having to arrange a -24V (or whatever) bus for discrete jfets.
Isn't "Analogue Engine" a registered TM of THAT?Also their 'Analogue |Engine" (integrated detection and VCA) and RMS detection parts.
well I can give you all that waffle if you like! I have a earlier BG1 that has the TI equivalent in it that no one uses! LOL, but that might have more to do with the weird choices on the front panel of extremely low HP filter at 33htz and only phase switch on the first channel than it does with the op amps inside but who knows?! The BG8 gets all the love and the BG1 notsomuchWell that's not nearly subjective enough to earn the title
You need to claim that a NE5534 brings out the detail of a floor tom whilst an LF351 will lose midrange from percussion unless you use a polyester output capacitor with a specific epoxy coating...
