Product Description

Focusrite ISA One Digital

  is a single channel, transformer-based microphone preamp. ISA One Digital is the perfect preamp for singer/songwriters, thanks to its independent mic pre and DI signal paths and, with its 192kHz digital outputs, it can transform any audio interface with a digital input into a truly professional DAW front end.

Focusrite ISA One Digital's mic pre features Focusrite's classic Transformer- based circuitry, which gives you the sound made famous by the Forte console in your home or project studio. The preamp's switchable impedance includes an ISA 110 setting, to accurately emulate the classic Focusrite front end, and there's a dedicated insert point, to add further processing into the signal chain. The unit also features a headphone output with a stereo cue mix input — so you can monitor signals from your DAW — and comprehensive metering provides accurate visual feedback.

Focusrite ISA One Digital's preamp gives you the authentic sound of the Focusrite Forte console in an ultra-portable format. Inputs for microphone, line-level, and instrument-level sources cover all of the bases. A variable impedance selector lets you dial in the warmth you want without sacrificing the clarity you need. What's really cool is that the ISA One Digital's instrument and microphone inputs run in parallel, so you can blend the direct signal of the instrument with the sound of the miked up amplifier - a killer trick for getting bass sounds that are both fat and punchy. Add to that the ISA One Digital's preinstalled A/D converter, which is capable of outputting up to 24-bit/192kHz digital output, and you have the perfect companion piece to your audio interface.

Features
  • Classic single-channel Focusrite microphone preamp with independent DI
  • Includes rugged custom flight case, built to protect the ISA One from the rigors of the road. Rugged plywood construction with a solid polypropylene exterior and reinforced corners
  • Selectable impedance, perfect for matching with any microphone
  • Instrument inputs, with high- and low-impedance options
  • Classic VU meter and modern ladder LED meter
  • Cue mix stereo inputs
  • Certificate of origin hand signed by Phil Dudderidge included
  • Ideal for both engineers and demanding performers alike, featuring independent gain control, an output for routing to an amp, an independent XLR output on the rear and routing to the ADC
  • Headphone output with volume control can feed either a sum of the two inputs to the headphones output, or an external stereo cue mix (such as a stereo mix feed from an interface) via two TRS Jack inputs on the rear of the unit
  • 24-bit/192kHz A/D converter card preinstalled

Crosstalk
CMRR: 98dB (channel 1, 1kHz, maximum gain with +24dBu input)
Crosstalk Channel to Channel: With 10dB@1kHz input to channel A, channel B output = 104dBrA. With 10dB@10kHz input to channel A, channel B output = 84dBrA

Maximum Output Level
24dBu

Meters
Moving coil (MC) meter is factory calibrated to 0VU = +4dBu with 1kHz sinewave. With the VU Cal button pressed the meter can be adjusted on the rear panel to allow 0VU to equal +10dBu to +26dBu with the centre detent being equal to +22dBu

Peak LED meters calibrated in the detent position for 0dBFS = +22dBu, calibration is adjustable on the rear panel to allow 0dBFS to equal +10dBu to +26dBu

Routing for MC and Peak1 meter is after the HPF, pre insert send or switched post insert return. Peak2 is always pre ADC channel 2, which can be fed by external input or Instrument input

LED levels are as follows when peak calibration is set to center detent on the rear panel. This is when using the internal ADC)

1. 0 = +22dBu
2. -2 = +20dBu
3. -6 = +16dBu
4. -12 = +10dBu
5. -18 = +4dBu
6. -42 = -20dBu
