The GC-Audio Inherit system is an innovative audio device that allows you to have many models of preamps with a single rack.
It also allows you to test quickly several preamplification technologies without having to plug and unplug XLRs from one rack to another and without patch.
Unlike the API 500 format, it allows the implementation of high-voltage or high-current multiple-voltage preamplification technologies. For example, the API 500 format is not designed to power a real "full" tube preamplifier (total absence of Op Amp or transistor substitutes for lamps). Indeed the heating voltage of two ECC82 (double stage to have a full gain range) consumes 240mA while the maximum standardized current of the API 500 format is 130mA per slot. The Inherit system therefore gives you access to preamps that would be impossible on a lunchbox.
The rack's power supply has been designed with great care and contains a custom wire transformer. During a take, without patch, it is thus easy to quickly compare e.g., the sharpness of a transistor preamp to the warmth of a real tube preamp. The cartridges are designed around proven technologies that have been part of recording studio standards for the past 40 years. Four cartridges are currently available (more will be released in early 2022) :
It consists of a 19 ’’ 2U chassis which combines the electronic functions common to all preamps (input / output, power supply, meter, volume knobs, low cut, pad, phase inverter, etc.).
Many cartridges are available with very different electronic designs (pre-amplification by transistor, lamps, AOP, balancing / unbalancing by transformer, OA, etc….)
These are inspired by microphone preamps from the best mixing consoles.
Numerous improvements have been made to achieve a better signal-to-noise ratio while maintaining the original behavior and tonal color.
Particular care has been taken with the power supply, in particular with real plate voltages of around 300V for the tube models in order to guarantee an optimal flow of electrons.
The shielding cartridge allows EMC isolation never reached.
Cartridge available: RE-73, Tube Heat, RE-4K, RE-98
Cartridge to come: RE-VR, RE-9K, RE-81, RE-ANG etc ...
GC Audio Inherit system is Finalist for Namm Tec Awards 2022.
