    Warm Audio announced API 312 style pre amp!

    Oh man oh man, this could be good. Fingers crossed. @$1199 it's excellent per channel cost, got input And output xformers, and also an an output knob per channel, which could be useful when not only for good gain staging, but especially if these trannys overdrive pleasantly. Plus the op amps are...

    Where did API originally use the 312 preamp?

    Info about the 212 and the 512 series preamps is not hard to come by. However, the 312 is more elusive. Were they manufactured for use in any of the 1970's consoles? If so, was there some sort of faceplate? Does anyone have pictures? I've just purchased one of the vintage 312 cards and...

    Osa vs. Bae 312a

    I have a couple of api 512cs. In my opinion they are great for certain applications, (drums, bass, guitars)but I need something more suitable for vocals, cymbals, etc.... I saw Osa makes several different pres. Do they make a pre with a bit more mids, and top end? I need a something with...

    312a vs. 512c API mic pres

    I am adding some more API modules and I love my Brent Averill Neve 1272. Does anyone own his 312a's? How do they compare to the 512c's?

    So you want to build an API 312?

    The circuit is extremely simple, and all of the parts can be purchased... For the output transformer, you have 2 options. Either buy them for $50 from Dan Alexander Audio (dont know if he has any or how many he has), or get a group order together and get them for about $20 - $25 (from the...

    API 212, Brent Averill / API 312, API 512 ?

    Has anyone ever done a comparison between API's two preamp modules, the 212 and 512? And we might as well throw in Brent's version of the 312. I like the idea of a simple, straightforward preamp like the 212, without extras like multiple I/O, etc., and its also a couple of hundred cheaper than...
