JDK Audio V10 single-channel mic preamp
JDK Audio, the brand developed and engineered by API (Automated Processes Inc.) in Jessup, Md., announces the release of the V10 single-channel mic preamp and the V12 single-channel compressor (MSRP $695/each). Both units are built in accordance with API’s 500-Series modular lunchbox format.
The V10’s circuit is identical to a single channel of the JDK R20 mic preamp, and the V12’s circuit is identical to a single channel of the JDK R22 compressor, which is itself a replica of the inline compressor on ATI Paragon consoles.

JDK’s V10 is a fully-featured mic preamp, with 54 dB of mic-level gain, 45 dB of instrument-level gain, padding, phantom power, and phase inversion.
The JDK V12 offers the patented “Thrust” circuit that preserves high-frequency content even under aggressive compression settings and is paired with responsive threshold, ratio, knee, and gain makeup controls.
