JESSUP, MARYLAND: JDK Audio, the brand developed and engineered by legendary analog innovator API, announces the release of the V10 single-channel mic preamp and the V12 single-channel compressor. Both units are built in accordance with API’s 500-series modular lunchbox® format, which has become the industry-wide standard for modular signal processing equipment. The V10’s circuit is identical to a single channel of the JDK R20 mic preamp, and the V12’s circuit is identical to a single channel of the JDK R22 compressor (itself a replica of the famed inline compressor on ATI Paragon consoles).

“JDK is all about sonic integrity, a great pedigree and extraordinary value,” said Larry Droppa, president and owner of API’s JDK Audio. “As with all JDK Audio products, the V10 and V12 feature the same build quality and five-year warranty for which API products have been famous for decades.”

JDK’s V10 is a fully-featured mic preamp, with 54dB of mic-level gain, 45dB of instrument-level gain, padding, phantom power, and phase inversion. The JDK V12 offers the patented “Thrust” circuit that preserves high-frequency content even under aggressive compression settings and is paired with responsive threshold, ratio, knee, and gain makeup controls. MSRP is an affordable $695 for each unit.
