At the core of the 4-710d are four channels of tone-blending Twin-Finity mic preamps with true-bypass 1176-style compression, including specially tuned "fast" and "slow" settings. Each of the four mic preamp channels allows for continuously variable phase-aligned tone, between a 100% tube and 100% solid-state signal path. Send and return jacks are available for external processing read more or signal access.

The eight analog inputs are digitized via ultra-high quality 24-bit A/D converters at selectable sample rates up to 192 kHz. Digital output is available via dual ADAT lightpipe or AES/EBU DB-25 connectors, facilitating integration with most popular audio interfaces.

This is all that and then some! I've used it on vocals, guitars bass, DRUMS and it is now my go-to pre. So many USEFUL features. I'm running 4 other pre's into the 4 1/4" ins and feeding the ADAT line to my interface for an all in one unit. The 4 inserts are sweet for adding noise gates to mics if needed or any other rack unit. The compressor is sweet...gets the job done without over doing it. The tube/Trans feature is SWEEEET! his unit made one helluva an impressive sonic change in my sound and recordings. And I DO love that UA sound! I see another in my future! Highly recommended....U DIG...!
