An ideal mic preamp for the current recording world?

Recording technology never stops evolving, however it is impossible to restore the missing parts lost at the input stage. There are so many wonderful mic preamps in the market; some have tasty vintage tone, others with specific characters and so on. Nevertheless, even these high-end preamps are not able to reproduce the transient response of strings and percussion instruments, harmonics that musicians feel when playing their instruments. We know that you have experienced problems before; adding more tracks on the mix makes the sound saturated at specific frequencies, or even a little bit of gain up causes remarkable noises.


We need a preamp without such problems, That is the reason why we started the development.

All for transparent sound and excellent transient capability
Our goal was simple but difficult, developing a preamp that has no difference between the sound musicians feel and the recorded track, making them as transparent as possible. The track must be able to cut through the mix, and must have flat harmonics response. To make it happen, we paid great amount of attentions to every detail in designing this preamp without any compromise.
Every SP-MP is built with carefully selected components by skilled technicians in Japan. It is best to build equipments with less components to preserve the sound character of the source though it is very difficult as every audio professional knows. To achieve this, it is important to select components which can preserve original source’s attack, sustain as they are. We strictly select only the best components available, such as feedback resisters that are much more expensive than ordinary chip resisters. Teflon- coated single wires are used for internal wiring because of better transmitting efficiency than standard wires. It also avoids corrosion as well.

These features bring you extraordinarily wide frequency response from ultra low end to higher harmonics, an ultra fast transient response that keeps musicians’ performance alive, and expresses wide dynamic range.
So, nothing other than wonderful mics and a studio with great room acoustics are required for excellent recordings. SP-MP’s completely natural sound with highest resolution in sonic details is an every engineer’s dream. It is no longer a dream. Experience it Now

Mick Sawaguchi : producer, Engineer, AES, IBS Fellow Member.

The Japanese pioneer of surround mixing. Many TV programs he had worked during working at NHK as a sound engineer were awarded, then he is also  awarded for his contribution for surround audio by AES and IBS.Following his retirement from NHK in 2005 he set up Mick Sound Lab, which has been recording and mixing UNAMAS Label. He also maintains (since 2002) a private surround workshop, SURROUND TERAKOYA. 

So transparent and crystal clear. EQ is not  necessary.  Can get detail of source and represent nuance of performance because of wider dynamics,  You can add color on the track using plugin.

Tamotsu Yoshida : Engineer

Working as a engineer since 1976, one of the most respected engineer in Japan. Almost every top artists such as Tatsuro Yamashita and Seiko Matsuda, are listed on huge client list of his .His mic placement method is most sought technic by young engineers.
