Dual-slot, single-space, rack-mounted frame with power supply for 500 series compatible audio modules.

The A-Designs 500HR a dual slot 500-series power supply and frame is one of the easiest and most effective ways to mount two of your favorite 500 series platform modules in a single rack space. It has balanced XLR input and output for 2 mono channels, and can supply +48V phantom power. In addition to being the perfect companion for A Designs Audio 500 series modules, the 500HR is compatible with most VPR Alliance modules, and is one of the most affordable solutions for any pair of 500 series processors.

The 500HR can be used with all sorts of different modules to give you all sorts of customizable functionality. Loaded with two preamps it becomes a dual-channel mic pre; with two A-Designs EM-PEQs, it's a dual-channel, Pultec-style equalizer; and with one preamp and one EQ it is a complete pre/post EQ recording channel. Plus, using the preamp and EM-PEQ configuration, you can bypass the preamp on your guitar/bass/keyboard amplifier to give you a totally different amp for live performance. Preamp and compressor, compressor and delay and EQ, two different kinds of EQ, one tube and one solid-state compressor - the possibilities are literally endless!

Comments about A Designs 500 HR Dual Slot Frame for 500 Series Modules:

The A Designs 500HR is a no-nonsense 1U rackmount chassis for your 500-series preamps or other modules (compressors, EQ, etc.). I found it very easy to install my pair of A Designs P1 preamps, although almost any other 500 series preamps should fit as well. It does what its supposed to do and feels like it should last forever. After I filled up my API lunchbox, this is exactly what I needed to expand.
