Now in its third generation, the much revered 2-channel Auteur from Black Lion has been given a number of upgrades to look better, be more portable and of course, capture your sound.

Both channels have line-level inputs for adding warmth and weight to keyboards, synths and even full stereo mixes. The Hi-Z switch makes for a stellar instrument input for direct capture of guitars, bass, and even master busses.


Modern, meet Vintage

The Auteur mkIII design starts with a fast and transparent modern front-end, perfect for capturing every nuance and detail. This is followed up by a vintage-inspired output-stage design, coupled with a Cinemag transformer for massive, colourful sound. This design approach results in a preamp that’s a perfect jack-of-all-trades that sounds amazing on everything you can throw at it.

Auteur mkIII features a tour-worthy chassis, that’s extremely portable. Not only is it great on the go, but it fits perfectly on a desktop for smaller setups. Removable rack ears are also included, the Auteur mkIII can be racked in a 1/2U space.
