A-Designs Audio Pacifica
Designed, built, and extensively "ear-tested," by long-time recording industry veterans, the A Designs Pacifica takes its sonic signature and name from the revered Quad Eight mixing console. However, the A-Designs Pacifica has a sound and character all its own. Praised by top professionals for having the depth of a Neve, the midrange of an API and the high-end of a Massenburg, the Pacifica has firmly established itself as the go-to preamp for an impressive list of Grammy-winning and platinum-selling engineers and producers.
The streamlined feature set of the Pacifica delivers exactly what an audio professional needs to quickly record high-quality tracks. Paying homage to the color scheme of the Quad Eight Pacifica console, the hand-crafted A Designs Pacifica sports a rich, cream-colored finish with solid feeling red metal gain knobs, a red +48V phantom power push button with red LED indicator, and grey push buttons for phase reverse and –20dB pad - all giving the Pacifica a look reminiscent of California girls, beach boys, and classic Woodies.
