Focusrite has added the ISA Two to its ISA family of mic preamps and audio processors.

Focusrite ISA TwoThe ISA Two is a dual-mono, transformer-based microphone preamplifier that features two of Focusrite’s premium ISA-range mic/line/instrument preamps, each capable of providing +80dB of clean gain. Each channel also has switchable balanced insert points, variable high-pass filter, and variable input impedance.

The ISA (Input Signal Amplifier) microphone preamplifier (featuring Lundahl LL1538 input transformer and bespoke Zobel network filter) is drawn from the Focusrite Forté and Studio consoles of the 1980s and remains at the heart of every ISA Series unit.

Key features:
Mic preamplifiers: Based around the Lundahl LL1538 transformer, each provides +80dB of clean gain.
Filter: 18dB/octave high-pass filter with continuously variable cutoff from 16Hz to 420Hz.
Input impedance: Four input impedance settings, for use with any microphone.
Instrument/line inputs: DI inputs on the front panel; TRS Line inputs on the rear.
Insert points: Dedicated, switchable per-channel for connecting outboard processors.
LED meters: Eight-step meters; can be calibrated using rear-panel controls.

ISA Two is intended for making high-quality stereo recordings or adding a pair of studio-grade mic preamps to a system. ISA Two can accept mic, line or instrument inputs, providing a DAW front end.

Each channel has comprehensive gain and trim controls, and switches for engaging phantom power, phase invert, the balanced insert points, and the high-pass filter. A calibration knob on the rear panel enables line-up your analogue level to A-D converters.
