About This Product

Rane ML 1 Dual Microphone Preamplifier

The Rane ML 1 Mic Preamplifier provides the answer when you just need a preamplified pair. Go from either dynamic, condenser or electret microphones to line-level with a minimum of noise, distortion, and hassle. At the same time the ML 1 can convert those mics, or a stereo line source, to a digital output of your choice: AES3, S/PDIF coaxial or Toslink™ optical.

The ML 1’s rear panel provides 48 V switchable Phantom Power with an indicator LED. Each channel has a Mic / Line input switch with a Gain trim between 18 dB and 66 dB. Input signal and Output Signal / Overload LEDs help set levels to other equipment whether you are looking at the front or the back panel. Inputs and outputs let you choose between balanced XLR or Euroblock connectors. The Euroblocks accept 22 to 12 guage wire.

The ML 1 utilizes one of the finest ultra low noise amplifier designs available. Featuring a true differential input with high common-mode rejection, use of the ML 1 guarantees performance usually found only in mixing consoles costing thousands of times as much.

ML 1 Gain Security CoverA security cover for the rear panel Gain and Mic / Line switches section is included for those set-and-forget installations. The internal power supply operates almost anywhere in the world with the proper IEC-C5 cord.

ML 1 Features:

  • Two channels, Mic or Line-level input.
  • Rear panel Gain controls including a security cover.
  • Front and rear panel Signal and Overload indicators.
  • Switchable 48 V phantom power.
  • Analog to Digital converter with AES3, S/PDIF RCA and optical outputs.
  • Balanced line driver with Euroblock and XLR Outputs.
  • Internal universal power supply (100-240 VAC).


ML 1 Preamp Applications:

Uses and applications for the ML 1 should be obvious. But to spark your imagination, these words on using the ML 1 might not be wasted.


The ML 1 is fills the need for adding a pair of microphone channels to line-level mixers, such as the Rane SM82S.

Digital Recording

Another handy use for the ML 1 is in recording applications. Many popular products (including most computer sound cards) do not have a high enough quality mic preamp to suit the resolution of the digital processing electronics. Such irony. Using the ultra low noise ML 1 to bring the mic inputs up to extremely high quality line-level or digital signal is an easy and affordable solution for this dilemma. No garbage in; no garbage out.

Microphone Types

The available gain and large input range of the ML 1 allows the use of virtually any type of microphone. True 48V phantom power guarantees the ML 1 works with every microphone. The better the mic, the better the ML 1 sounds.

The ML 1 Box Includes:

(1) Rane ML 1 Dual Preamplifier
