Last year, Mooer Audio introduced its Micro Preamp series of mini digital preamp pedals, which features sonically accurate digital recreations of the preamp sections of popular tube amplifiers. There are currently 17 Micro Preamps covering a full range of tones for all musical styles.
The big news for 2018 is Mooer’s new Preamp Live, which can store 12 Micro Preamps from the range. Hook Preamp Live up to your computer via USB and pick the Micro Preamps you want to load in.
Preamp Live stores the 12 sounds in three banks—A, B and C—each of which has four channels. All banks and channels can be selected using the four foot switches on the unit. There are knobs for Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble and Gain that let you tweak the tone to your taste and then save it to each channel. The unit also has a clean Boost knob that can be set Pre or Post. All of the controls have LED surrounds to indicate each knob’s position on a darkened stage.
In addition, there are master controls for Volume, Presence, FX Blend (for use with the built-in effect loop) and Cabinet Simulation (switchable between the main 1/4-inch output and the XLR output).
Connections include a standard 1/4-inch input, 1/4-inch and XLR outputs, effect loop, USB, power and a headphone jack for private practice.
