KMR Announces New Signal Processing Products

Audio consultancy and equipment supplier KMR Audio Ltd has just announced the arrival of the brand new line of analogue signal processing products - Arsenal Audio by API.
The new line enabled API to innovate and expand beyond the core technology on which it built its reputation since it was established in the late 1960s.
KMR Sales Manager Keith Malin said: "Anyone who is a fan of API as we are will be excited at the new range. Basically what you’re getting is the heritage of outstanding quality and solid build and manufacturing coupled with a price associated with home recording technology, rather than the professional studio market with which API usually caters."
The range consists of three new products - the R20 two-channel mic pre and the R24 two-channel four-band EQ, plus the V14 four-band VPR 500 format equalizer.
They feature robust design standards in a solid, reliable package. Each unit is hand assembled and designed to provide years of great sounding, analogue audio performance at a surprisingly affordable price.
The R20 is a meticulously detailed and solidly constructed dual-channel microphone preamplifier. Designed from the ground up by API's design team, the R20 features low-noise, high-quality inputs for both mic and instrument in a rack-mount chassis with internal power supply.
Each channel includes rotary gain control plus individual toggle switches for phantom power, phase, pad and mic/instrument input selection.
The dual mic preamps each offer up to 55dB of gain, while each front panel, high-impedance instrument input provides a maximum of 31dB of gain.
Each channel's pad switch attenuates the mic input by -20dB, or the instrument input by -10dB. A pair of traditional analog VU meters with separate peak indicators is used for output metering. Both XLR and 1/4" outputs are fully balanced.
The R24 features two identical channels of equalization modeled after the classic APSI model 562. The R24 is rack-mounted with internal power supply and delivers an affordable combination of rugged construction and solid performance. Individual continuously variable control knobs allow for separate adjustment of frequency and gain.
All four bands are peak/dipping parametric design with 12dB of boost/cut per band. EQ in/out is controlled by classic toggle switches. The R24 includes a custom transformer-balanced output with extended headroom of +23dB.
Finally the V14 is an extremely high-quality four-band equalizer modelled after the classic APSI model 562 EQ, and is designed for the popular API VPR 500 series rack format.
Controls include dual concentric pots providing continuously variable adjustment of frequency and gain, plus an EQ in/out switch.
All four bands offer peak/dipping parametric configuration with 12dB of boost/cut per band. The V14 includes a custom transformer-balanced output with extended headroom of +24dB.
"We're excited about establishing a new brand that compliments API so well," said Larry Droppa, API's President. "Arsenal Audio by API allows us to offer different technologies, and a different set of creative tools, to help people make music, which is exactly what API has been doing for decades."
