"Everything was great from the ordering to the prompt shipping. I was very pleased with our purchase from Kraft and will likely order from you again. I will also recommend you to friends, as well. I often buy and recommend products for use at my church and, in that capacity, will look to Kraft at the top of an ever shortening list of vendors." - Stephen, VA
"Thanks for taking such good care of us. We had a great experience with your company and would certainly look forward to working with you again in the future. Thank you for making this purchase so easy!" - Bridget, MO
The Great Discovery
The name “Eureka” derives from a Greek word meaning “I have found it!” It was made famous by the ancient Greek scholar Archimedes, indicating exultation at a great discovery. Try the sweet-sounding, super-versatile Eureka preamp and signal processor, and you’ll discover the answer to a variety of sonic needs.
The Eureka is equally at home in the studio or at the gig. With separate mic, line, and instrument inputs, you can employ it on almost any sound source.
Sweetening starts with a high-headroom Class A solid-state mic preamplifier with +22 dBu of headroom, providing wide dynamic range and excellent transient-response characteristics.
The preamp’s variable mic-input impedance enables you to vary the “color” of your sound and get the best performance from any type of microphone.
A Saturate control simulates the effects of tape saturation and tube warmth so you can go from crystal-clear to warm and rich.
Go with the Flow
The Eureka’s versatility stems in part from its malleable signal flow. With both XLR and ¼” line outputs, you can connect the Eureka to almost any recording interface, amp, or P.A. system. The EQ can be pre- or post-compressor, and you can bypass each independently. Balanced send and return jacks enable you to insert your favorite outboard processor before the compressor and EQ.
The backlit VU meter can display gain reduction or output gain.
Compression, EQ, and More
The channel strip’s fast, fully variable compressor provides Attack, Release, and Ratio controls and can be switched between hard and soft knee.
The compressor includes an internal sidechain with variable (10 Hz to 10 kHz) high-pass filter, so it can achieve anything from hard pumping to transparent compression.
The Eureka’s three-band, fully parametric EQ has overlapping frequency selection on each band. It can be used pre- or post-compressor and can be bypassed.
Of course the Eureka provides all of the secondary features you need in a preamp/channel strip. A 20 dB pad lets you tame hot input signals, and a high-pass filter attenuates all frequencies below 80 Hz by 12 dB. Polarity reverse enables you to deal with phase problems when using open mics.
Try the Eureka. Like the great Archimedes, you’ll be shouting, “I have found the solution!”
