Advanced Audio’s much awaited Dual channel Microphone Preamplifier.
After some time of R and D and many conversations with world class console builders, we have locked in the design, and started production of our state of the art transformer coupled pre. Our first preamp offering is solid state. Using custom wound input and output transformers; in true AA style, it is based on the finest vintage gear, but uses modern components and circuitry, creating a perfect match for not just our microphones but any mic.
The resulting sound has a wonderfully musical transformer coloration and warm wide bottom end, while still keeping the source present and clear.
The adjustable HP filter allows you to hone in perfect clarity on any source. The simplicity of the deign allows for ease of use, one input knob, no array of lights and confusing buttons. Both pro’s and new users alike will appreciate the large VU meters, and clean well thought out design. This was designed by folks that use gear!!
We use some of the best custom wound transformers made in Europe. The circuit boards are top quality and pressed in England, and all the hand soldered components are of the highest quality. Each preamp is hand built right here at AA HQ in Canada.
Want to hear it? Come see us at booth #325 at Nashville NAMM in June!!! Otherwise, keep checking the site for constant updates!
We will begin accepting down payments for the inaugural run. The first 50 units will be offered at an amazing introductory price of $995usd! We will begin accepting deposits upon our return from NAMM.
Don’t wait. Once people start hearing this they will be hard to get your hands on!!

Our CM67se has had a banner year being used on recordings that vary from hip-hop to country. It has found it's way into the hands of so many happy artists and engineers, including some pretty big names! We just wanted to give this mic a little nod and let everyone know how proud we are.
Joseph Trohman, guitarist and founding member of Fallout Boy proudly prepping his 67se for electric cab:
"My CM67se is warm, full and three dimensional. It's a go to every time when tracking a roomier electric guitar sound that still cuts through the mix. It's also served me well on vocals, especially for groups. It's a gorgeous sounding workhorse of a mic!"
"Advanced Audio has nailed the CM251 dead on!"
Producer Jack Douglas, engineer Sam Martin and producer Warren Huart at Spitfire Studio's have been putting the CM251 through it's paces on some recent projects. See what else they had to say HERE!
Donovan Leon, Engineer, Studio Manager for Universal Music SA, has been using their pair of CM67se recently on a number of top artists in Johannesburg including Gangs of Ballet, Charlize de Berg, Vincent Bones (idol winner for SA in 2014) and as room mics for the SOWETO Gospel Choir!
"Diamond of Tanzania laying into the 67se"
"The CM67se get's used mostly on vocals; it really has a nice warm character to it which is amazing. It also has been used on guitar, piano and even room mics, we also have a CM47fet we like from Advanced Audio."
- Donovan 'da Don' Leon, Universal Music South Africa Studio Manager and Engineer
And introducing Katie Anne Clark for the first listen to the mic on vocals!

A big thank you to all who came by to visit us at Musikmesse. It was so much fun for us and we so look forward to hearing
from you all! See more pics and read all about it here.
We had visits from the DJ elite! Armin Von Buuren, multi award winning dutch DJ, stopped in, and though he is renowned for his trance
music, he also records numerous vocalists and was very interested in Advanced Audio.
"Don't go breaking your piggy bank, there is a lot of stuff out there that does the job beautifully, this thing is an unbelievable sounding mic"
- Elliot Randall on the Advanced Audio CM67se
some of AA's finest for his condenser mic choices. The CM251, the CM67se and the CM414.
"$100,000 Ante in the Analog Game"
"Advanced Audio Microphones have prided themselves on building vintage-inspired mics using modern technology.
These mics sound warm and open at a fraction of the cost of their predecessors. Both the CM67se and
CM251 sound big and crisp and are brilliant for vocals, acoustic guitars and horns. I’ve added a CM414,
based on the original AKG 414. It’ll be cool as an additional mic on snares and deliver a nice zing on acoustic guitars."
AA is proud to say one of the classic art rockers and songwriters was singing into the CM67se on a recent live session at RAK studios, London!
Bryan Ferry initially found fame writing and singing lead vocals for Roxy Music in the 70's. Since then he has gone on to wonderfully rework other artists songs, and of course, continually writing his own music. He has sold over 30 million albums worldwide!
" Bryan Ferry live at RAK."
Robbie Nelson and Simon Willey were engineers for the live session. Robbie, recently won Breakthrough Engineer of the Year (MPG), let us know that the 67se was used for parts of the main vocal. READ MORE about the Bryan Ferry Session here>>
