Remote-controlled Eight Channel Mic Preamp
Take control of your authentic mic sound with the Millennia HV-3R. Combining remote-control technology with Millennia's extraordinarily pure HV-3 preamp, the HV-3R adds a level of sophistication to any studio setup. For the extreme jet-setting engineer, you can remotely control preamp levels in an LA session from the comfort of your New York hotel room. Or, if you're like most of us, you can easily manipulate levels from directly within Pro Tools HD. The HV-3R offers Ethernet connectivity with your PC and supports re-callable control of up to 792 channels (99 units). However you steer it, you also get eight of Millennia's acclaimed HV-3 preamps, widely recognized for their purity and detail.
The only remote-controllable HV-3 preamplifier
In addition to arming you with eight of Millennia's acclaimed HV-3 preamps, the HV-3R lets you take charge via remote control. You can network up to 792 channels (99 units) via Ethernet, enjoying full recall-ability of your settings with the on-board memory. The HV-3R is fully controllable from your PC and can also be controlled, over MIDI, from within Pro Tools HD.
Pure, musical, incredibly smooth preamplifier
The HV-3 is there, but it's not there. And that's exactly how you want it. Built to offer the most transparent path from your microphone to the rest of your signal chain, the HV-3 features a transformerless input, balanced audio path, and minimal amplifier design. Aficionados of classical and acoustic-based music may have first discovered the promise of the HV-3's honest approach to preamplification, but the preamp is rapidly making its way into studios of all genres. Once you've heard it, you'll realize that no color is a color, too. What you give the HV-3, you get.
Preserves your sound for later processing
Much of our gear is soaked with character and personality. It's easy to overdo it. The Millennia HV-3 is ideal for the engineer who wants to try on color, without committing to one sound from the start. When you've recorded with the HV-3, you know you're starting from square one, so you can precisely dial in the tone, flavor, and character you want from your outboard gear or plug-in processors. To put it another way, if you were deciding what sculpture to make, you'd most likely want to start with an unchiseled piece of stone. The HV-3 translates the sound of the performance and the voice of your microphone, without getting in the way.
Known to save you time with EQ
When you're used to processing colored audio from the start, working with an HV-3 preamplifier will be a change. But, it's an easy workflow to get into. In particular, engineers who have used the HV-3 often note that tracks are somehow easier to EQ. With the right mic, in the right place, the HV-3 delivers a smooth, natural response that seems to require less tinkering. Without the heavy hand of a preamp, tracks seem to fall together into place.
Millennia gear is made for detail
Founder and chief designer John La Grue takes the same approach to his exceptional audio gear as he does to the wine he cultivates in the California countryside. Detail matters, it's everything. Whether in a vintage of wine or your multi-track mix, taken together, those details can make a major difference in the end result. Millennia equipment celebrates those fine, subtle points, bringing you gear that's built with uncompromising quality to deliver purity in music.
