The SMP200 is a four-channel mic preamp designed to complement SoundField’s SPS200 ‘Software Controlled’ Microphone. The four-capsule SPS200 is SoundField’s most affordable product, and achieves this by offering software-based decoding and processing, rather than shipping with a hardware processor and control unit like other products in the SoundField range.
For preamplification purposes, the SPS200 can be used with any multi-channel mic pre or digital interface with onboard preamps. However, the output of the SPS200’s four capsules still needs to be gain-matched, and the SMP200 is designed as a one-box dedicated solution to address this need. Capable of being used as a standard high-quality four-channel mic pre, the SMP200 differs from other multi-channel preamps by offering a ganged master gain control, 48V phantom power and a low-pass filter that can be applied simultaneously across all four channels, thus ensuring the outputs from the SPS200’s capsules remain perfectly matched.
