Originally launched in late 2011 and updated in 2013 as the Anniversary Edition, it set the standard for 73s in 500 Series format, as it is essentially a reformatted 80 Series one .
Incredibly popular since its introduction in 2013, it remains one of the most popular microphone preamps in its class. Ideal for engineers tracking without eq, or in combination with the ´73EQJR, the Heritage ´73JR will bring that round bottom end with the exact amount of harmonic distortion. Not surprisingly it has turned into a first choice bass DI as well.
Essentially a 1073 module in line mode, it has become a perfect pair with the ´73JR. It is also a favorite in MCM8 mixing setups, where its round bass, silky highs and inductor based mids delivers that classic sound into your mixes.
Bringing the classic diode bridge based compression to the 500 series, along with a full class A output stage, this double wide module can also double as a 1073 style microphone amplifier when compression not needed, making it usable 100% of the studio time.
This new product is Heritage´s entry into the Internet of Things and anticipates a whole new, additional line of products to the already acclaimed analog classics.
No other current product, be it 500 series, rack or other format, has the features of the BT-500, which finally solves the connectivity problems of mobile devices in a professional studio environment.
