Overview

The Red 1 500 from Focusrite offers a compact interface to digital recording systems or for location recordings as well as convenient access in any control room, with a custom-wound Lundahl LL1538 input transformer, just as in the original.  Other features include a switchable phantom power; polarity invert; and an illuminated classic porthole VU meter.


The output stage of the Red 1 500, with its custom Carnhill transformer, will easily drive long cable runs without loss of quality – ideal for remote recordings. Mic gain is switched (with a Grayhill gold-plated military-grade switch) in 6dB steps from -6 to +60dB, for accurate, precise channel matching and recall.


The unique Focusrite mic amp topology provides superb common mode rejection, excellent overload margin and, with its shared gain structure, (14dB from the transformer and up to 46dB from the amplifier) a very low noise floor, combined with the traditional wide bandwidth of the original Red series (10Hz to 140kHz). This exceptional level of performance is maintained over a wide range of impedances applied to the input, making the Red 1 500 suitable for almost any microphone – ribbon, dynamic or condenser.
