Cranborne Audio has designed Camden 500 from the ground-up. Their mission is to create the ultimate in front-end studio technology. Just by hearing the richness of the recordings, you will agree that their mission was a success. Ready to withstand the modern workflow and some of the tougher recording techniques, it is ready for anything you throw at it. The preamp tech is custom designed by Cranborne Audio to achieve a low-noise and low-distortion performance as well as frequency and phase linearity. This will give you the most crisp and freshest recordings possible, on every stage, from input to master. Across a wide range of dB levels, the Camden 500 will give you amazingly warm quality - whether you need to record a quiet input or serious power - you won't be disappointed by the Camden 500's clarity.
Camden 500 comes with Mojo which is a great way for you to get vintage sound in your studio pipeline. It's a new type of saturation method with incredible filters and discrete second/third order harmonic generators. The accurate, tactile knob means that your filtering can be dialed in to your own taste. From a slight vintage valve sound to an overdriven and clip-ridden signals. It's there for when you need it, if you just want Camden 500's beautiful clean tones then you can bypass Mojo entirely, but once you've heard it on your tracks, you'll find little reason to avoid it.
When recording low end and bassy instruments, it can often be difficult to capture a crisp sound. Sometimes a lot of the clarity is lost because of low end roll off found in some other preamps. Thump is a wonderful tool that boosts the harmonics of 100Hz to 20Hz. It does all this without boosting the fundamental frequency which can often give your bassier tracks too much boom.
Cream gives you the vintage smoothness you need on your guitar, on your vocals or on anything you might want. The Cream setting drastically increases THD whilst smoothing-out the low-mids. The beauty of Cream is that it varies entirely on the harmonic signature of an incoming source, increasing the bright qualities of your instruments. Thump and Cream are amazing tools for crafting that specific sound and tone you want from your recordings. You won't believe you managed without it.
Camden 500's quality can revitalize your studio and give you a creative and technical edge.
