MWS - mk II

The MWS microphone work station functions as a dual mic/line pre with sonic eq that is totally musical and tuned by John Oram to amplify and equalize two individual (or one stereo) inputs. His long experience in the art of sonic reality enables you to control the audio path with precision. Each channel is identical and this brief description outlines the features available either side of the centerline marker.

The PHASE SWITCH inverts the signal phase by 180 degrees. The INPUT level control adjusts gain of line levels through to mic levels from a real unity to plus 70dB. Unity mode handles up to plus 22dB. The LOW FILTER is a musically steep roll-off smoothly adjustable from 5 to 200 Hertz, great for removing rumble and for tightening floppy kick-drums. The entire EQ may be bypassed with the EQ IN button, the led above shows when the eq is on. LOW is a shelf with switchable turnover at 80 & 150Hz, the button selects the frequency and the LOW control enables plus and minus 16dB of control. The small dot on the panel shows the relationship existing between these two functions. The LOW SWEEP is lined to associate with the LO-MID control and these functions combine to enable a bell shaped response to be added or taken away from the signal path and can be smoothly swept from 150 to 2000 Hertz with a control range of plus or minus 16dB. Below the LOW SWEEP control is an led and PHANTOM button that shows when plus 48 Volt has been placed on the input connectors for remote powering [phantom powering] of microphones.

The level meter shows the output level over a 27dB range, the maximum level of plus 12VU is well within the headroom capabilities of the channel. High levels and thus lower noise levels make MWS an amazingly quiet equalizer. The reference level is set for 0VU = +4dBu and is internally adjustable for other reference levels. The HI-MID is panel lined with the HIGH SWEEP giving similar control as the LO-MID from 1k5 to 15k. The HI-CUT inserts a musically steep roll-off throughout the audio path of the unit to remove line noise at high frequencies. Gradual reduction at 9kHz increasing with frequency to eliminate RFI and other high frequency objections.The HIGH control is linked to the button situated above and controls a shelf turning over at 8kHz and 12kHz.The vertical line on the panel is the centerline marker. The controls to the right of this line are identical to the above description.

The line power switch is located at the far right of all the controls. On the rear of the unit, the MWS MKII features two insert jacks for connection to outboard limiter compressors or for access to the output from the mic pre's or to the inputs of the equalisers.

Mains line voltage can be switched from 110 volt to 230 volt using the rear mounted switch.

 Sonicomp-2

Two channel Dual-attenuator Limiter- Compressor

represents the combination of the old with the new. Vintage optical attenuation AND state of the art semi-conductor attenuators give immediate a-b comparison between 'round knee' and 'precision' level adjustment. The control parameters are infinitely adjustable between wide range limits; added to the dynamic and exciting analogue feel of Oram Sonics Controls give smooth and detailed adjustment of:

  • Input level dBu to +20dBu
  • Attack 0.1mS to 40mS
  • Ratio 1.4:1 to 30:1 [full limit]
  • Threshold dBu to +20dBu then off
  • Release 0.05S to 3.0S
  • Output level Gain adjust 0dB to +15dB
  • Link switch Stereo tracking within 0.5dB
  • Side chain EQ insertion point for frequency selective compression
  • Bypass In - Out comparison
  • Optical LDR / Solid State switching
  • Output level & Gain Reduction metering
  • Precision toroidal based power supply
  • Ultra low noise and high musicality
  • Balanced inputs and outputs

Octasonic Plus

Eight channels of precision mic-pre

For the discriminating work-station user requiring high precision amplification of microphones with the lowest achievable noise floor. This is achieved by the seperate power supply and optimised componenet layout. Perfect for the professional studio, location recorder, midi desktop or direct to disc applications.

The exceptional clarity of these amplifiers, described recently by a principal reviewer at Studio Sound: "... this is a very desirable preamp, with a full, open, clean sound. It is superbly quiet and, to all intents and purposes, transparent."

Every channel has switchable +48V phantom power and a balanced output. When used in conjunction with OCTAMIX or OCTAFADE the unit becomes a stereo output, eight channel mixer, ideal for live sound reinforcement, broadcast and theatre applications.

Octa-EQ

Eight channels of exciting John Oram musical EQ from the series 24 console range. The design of this 3U rackspace unit enables each band to be split providing a total of sixteen separate channels. In combination with the Octasonic mic pre's and the new Octafade mixing rack, the result is an eight channel mixer of the highest sonic and build quality.

Designed as an equaliser for the Project Room, DAW Station, Mastering, Broadcast and Live Sound environments, the audio engineer now has an unprecedent level of control with exceptional realism and fidelity. The aluminium control knobs complement the high quality of the unit. The self contained power supply unit has dual voltage capability.

As in all Oram sonics ® products, surface mount circuit technology and mil-spec mechanical construction ensure ultra-high quality assurance and long term reliability.

4T5 Celebration Channel Strip

A word from the designer:

This Channel Strip celebrates my 45 years in the industry. It incorporates all the magic that Oram Sonics has provided over the years, from Trident Series 80 and TSM to now, to provide more flexibility than ever before. The facilities in this unit extend the creativity of audio sweetening and intended colouration. This system will, I hope, provide all the features you desire, great mic pre, dynamics and in all, great EQ sonic musiciality.
