LEGENDARY TUBE-BASED PREAMPLIFICATION AND PROCESSING FOR THE STUDIO
Ask the most accomplished recording and mastering engineers in the world and they will tell you; the analog relationship between microphone and preamplifier most determines the sonic signature of a recording.
The texture, the complexity, the emotion of that moment mechanical energy is translated to electrical impulses has been the decades-long focus of Lachapell Audio.
Since 2005, the collaboration between studio engineer Scott Lachapell
and his electronics engineer father has yielded an array of tube-based
preamplifiers and processors that test the limits of recording art and technology.
From the flagship, eight tube, fully balanced dual channel 992EG to the "pocket size" 983M desktop unit, all Lachapell Audio models adhere to the design principles on which the company was founded; simple yet infinitely variable tube saturation, ample amounts of gain, and dead quiet noise performance .
992 EG BOUTIQUE TWO
CHANNEL TUBE PREAMP
"The LaChapell 992EG is the creme de la creme in the world of high voltage stereo tube mic preamps. Achieving the difficult and delicate balance of rich/creamy tube sound with an incredibly high level of detail." - SOUNDPURE
583S MKII 500 SERIES
Married with different mics, the preamp offers a color palette that is essentially endless. There was not one thing I thought was a mismatch for this preamp.
500TDI 500 SERIES TUBE DI INTERFACE
"If you want darn near set-it-and-forget-it, great sounding direct instrument tracks that require little fixing or diddling around, then it's the 500TDI all the way."
"What I like best about the LaChapell sonic signature is that you can hit the tube drive quite liberally, just shy of obvious distortion, and it adds fantastic texture, sheen and weight to your source."
