The EM-Gold’s combination of EM-Silver and EM-Red transformers make for the perfect sounding floor tom. It is also the preamp you should reach for when you want that speaker moving, low/mid thump from heavy guitars. The EM-Gold is ideal for fattening up thin-sounding sources; on mics lacking low mids or upper bass warmth; and mid transients, such as percussion and drums. It also shines on vocals, bass, and even drum machines. If you’re going to move air (the secret of a big sound), go for the Gold.With various combinations of EM-Series modules you can create a lunchbox dedicated to recording drums, or a horn section, or a whole orchestra…or build your own assortment of different flavored individual channels or stereo pairs, avoiding the blandness that can come from having all your tracks recorded with the same sonic characteristics. Let A-Designs Audio’s EM-Series 500 modules give you access to a world of color and sound that will inspire both you and your recordings.
