Doser les textures entre lampes et transistors pour énormément de flexibilité
Exploiter une compression classique de style 1176 sur chaque canal de micro
Ajouter 8 entrées à n'importe quelle interface Apollo par connexion ADAT optique
Donnez vie à votre collection de micros avec la large palette de sons de préampli UA
Au cœur du 4-710d, il y a quatre canaux de préamplis micro « Twin-Finity » hybrides avec un dosage lampes/transistors. Chaque canal dispose pour le signal d'un circuit 100 % à lampes et d'un circuit 100 % à transistors, avec la possibilité de mélanger progressivement les deux circuits. Cela vous donne d'innombrables textures, du son le plus doux au son le plus crunchy, et vous permet d'obtenir le meilleur compromis entre le caractère de la lampe et la fidélité des transistors.
Un circuit de compression légendaire
Chacun des quatre canaux du 4-710d dispose d'une compression qui rappelle celle du 1176 avec véritable bypass et des paramètres Fast et Slow spécialement ajustés. Cela permet des réglages rapidement pour grossir une voix, maintenir une basse en place, ou ajouter de la chaleur et de la texture aux synthés et aux cuivres.
Ajoutez des entrées et une conversion A/N professionnelle
Avec huit entrées analogiques, le 4-710d est idéal pour donner plus de possibilités à votre studio. Après numérisation par des convertisseurs A/N 24 bits ultra haute qualité à fréquence d'échantillonnage réglable jusqu'à 192 kHz, le 4-710d se connecte facilement à la plupart des interfaces via ses deux connecteurs optique ADAT ou AES/EBU DB-25.
“The 4-710d is a whole racks worth of gear in one small box. Four big-sounding mic pres, four 1176's, eight channels of A/D conversion — big UA warm sound.”
– Chris Dugan (Green Day, Iggy Pop, U2)
“The 4-710d is one of the smartest mic preamps around. It’s cleverly designed and fun to use. I love the drive it gives me on drums and guitars.”
– Jacknife Lee (R.E.M, The Cars, Snow Patrol)

4-710d Four-Channel Tone-Blending Mic Preamp w/ Dynamics
Breaths new life into microphones
The 4-710d has truly brought all my microphones to life! The blend knob really helps dial in the tone and adds great character to each capture. Can't recommend this pre-amp enough!
I picked it up used out of Nashville used and, I will be purchasing another as, I complete my gear acquisitions for the studio I'm building. I wired it into the signal path using an Apollo Twin into Cubase. Set up was easy and, intergration was seamless and hassle free. I demoed it by plugging a P-Bas straight in and it ROCKED! I then used multiple mic situations! I plugged a tube mic in and ran it heavy to the transiter side and had plenty of headroom and tube love! I then plugged up a TLM-49 and the sonic range was borderline staggering! And then, "just to make sure" I put a SM-57 and a AEA ribbon mic in front of a 50 watt Marshall!...........YEP! ......Buy it Fool!
Superb DAW Front End
My studio has improved in leaps and bounds with the addition of the 4-710d. Not only an 8 channel extension for my stunning Apollo, the Twinfinity Pre's and 1176's built in have taken things to the next level and beyond. I now want to get a second one and perhaps even a third and forth. I've sold my large format console as this rig will allow me to embrace a far superior way forward.
There are issues however. The tube section of pre amp 3 is dead, and when I adjust input levels on the fly during a recording I'm getting nasty scratchy noises through everything indicating that perhaps lesser quality pots have been employed in the design. If this is the case I would be very disappointed.
Other than this, the 4-710d is a superb no brainer.
Great bang for the buck
I just can't get it to sound bad, whether it's recording choirs, live theatre, or pop/rock. The pre's are big and clean sounding, and the compression circuit is smooth. All that, and mine came with a free quad satellite!
Picked this unit up over the holidays and have done quite a bit of recording for vocals, acoustic guitar, and some DI work.
I love the tones and smoothness of the preamps. Especially the mix knob between solid state and tube. When recording an acoustic i use two little condensors set in an X pattern about four inches from the 14th fret, and one distant mic, lately an SM7 which was accidentally left open on a sound check. Turns out it adds a lot of nice rich body to to the X mics.
Anyway, is use the SS side of knob on the condensor mics and have the SM7 at about 1:00 oclock slightly toward the tube side of the mix.
Just a pleasure to work with. Now I'm waiting for my UAD Quad to arrive, and need to pick up a card for the light pip
4710d = fun + magic.
I bought this preamp after finding out about it on youtube.
After hearing about it, I was thinking that this would be one of the most versatile pieces of gear that I own, little did I know I HAD NO FREAKIN IDEA You dont know how versatile it REALLY is untill you actually use it in real world situations!
I am extremely happy with this unit; definitely worth the investment. The pre's are extremely clean and can be very dirty when you want them to be. Push the front end harder and you bring out a ton of character from the tube and transistor.
The compressors are perfect, Period!
Amazing A/D conversion!
The 4710 has brought a whole different dimension to my studio and my work.

I just purchased this and the Apollo together. The only problem with the tone blending is deciding which way to lean. A sweep across the spectrum yields multiple options that are each enticing in their own way. I've barely encountered the preamps on the Apollo because I'm so smitten with these. Also, the 4-710 connects via lightpipe and adds four mic channels to the Apollo and still leaves all of your line inputs available. I already had a Satellite Quad, so I will likely sell the one that they're offering as a bonus, but all of the UA products work together seamlessly and intuitively. Honestly, with the UA Apollo, 4-710, Satellite Quad, and the UAD plugins, you really don't need anything else but microphones, instruments and talent!
Plug and Play with Apollo
I need lots of channels for live recordings and after deciding to move to the Apollo for my mobile rig interface, getting a 4-710d was an easy choice. Fortunately, setup with the Apollo and Logic was trivial. My experience thus far with the 4-710d is still fairly limited - just 2 gigs totaling about 5 hours of tracking. I've been mostly trying to get to know the tube / solid state blend on various sources, as well as what the compressor can provide. On the most recent work, I set up channel one on kick drum and decided to go with no tube in the blend and set the compressor to slow because it let more beater sound through. Channels were used on toms with a 50% tube blend and the compression set to fast. Results were excellent!
I just bought the 4-710d to add to my home studio arsenal. As a drummer I want to get the most professional sound possible for my drum recordings. This is it! I use it for my overheads and drum room mikes for the drums, and everything else I record. I am amazed at the warmth and presence this produced.
I absolutely love this preamp, I now have a wide range of tonal possibilities to work with. I can hear such a difference with each mic being blended from "Trans to Tube" that it is like having many more preamps and microphones than I really have. I will be using this preamp a lot. Universal Audio is Great Gear !
I'm using this unit as part of a front end a/d set up for my home/portable studio. I'm running it via light pipe into a focusrite saffire pro 40 with the 4-710 being the master clock.
It is very simple to set up and even simpler to operate. These pres sound top notch. The 100% solid state setting is clean and clear but not without a little character, the all tube setting is coloured as you would expect and a blend of the two is very nice. So far I've run acoustic guitars, vocals and bass through the unit and been impressed. I'm looking forward to tracking some drums through these pres as they seem quite capable of being driven hard and still sounding good. A great solution for the money for those on a budget.
I can't believe how much better my mics sound with this pre amp! I used a Shure "Elvis" mic for scratch vocals during my last session and the singer loved the sound so much we ended up using the tracks in the final mix. I pugged the bass directly into another channel and the bassist was blown away by the tone. It's the world's greatest direct box. The compressors on each channel are an added bonus and sound great on everything I have used them on. The knobs and switches are rock solid and don't wiggle at all. This thing is built like a tank and I'm counting on it lasting for years and years. My current interface doesn't support ADAT but something tells me the UA converters will sound better than the Presonus ones I'm currently using so it may be time for an upgrade. Thanks for making a well designed product at a reasonable price.
Well built! Great converters and infinitely variable tone choices!

Excellent DAW front end
Perfect for the front end of your Digital Audio Workstation as an audio input. The 4-710 includes four amazing mic press, compression and AD, plus an additional four AD converters and clip limiting. The ability to choose between tube, solid state or a blend gives some nice choices for recording. The DI's sound great as well. I found tracking an electric guitar track recently quite enjoyable with recording the DI signal with slight tube distortion along with three other mics for tonal variety. In the end, I used all four channels for most of the tunes on the album. Having the different channels allowed me to adjust later to the songs mood. I never thought previously that I would need four channels for tracking guitar!
Germany - Good sounding Preamp ! But we had the same problem with the 4-710d . By switching to another pair microphones (Neumann TLM 103 to U89) the four channels went down. No Signal at all. Now weÂ´re waiting for the third one, after the first two units broke down
VERY DISAPPOINTED WHEN I FOUND OUT THESE GREAT PRODUCTS WERE MADE IN CHINA. THERE WILL BE NO MORE FOR ME FROM UA. BUY AMERICAN!!!!!!
SIMPLE AND SMART
FLEXIBLE ANS EFFICIENT :-)
why does the apollo (dual/quad, not 16) not have an AES/EBU port?? I mean seriously, this would make 100% sense and they would sell A LOT more Apollo/4-710D Combo Packages... It's just stupid... sorry. ADAT is not "the same".
One star off for "made in china" - it does not feel as solid as the usa built stuff. Can't say anything about the duration so far. One year in use and not a single problem at all.
4-710d Four-Channel Tone-Blending Mic Preamp w/ Dynamics
Beautiful sounding preamps from clean to mean. The wide tonal range available allows full control of harmonic content and character. Simple dynamics controls work well on all types of sources. Converters sound fantastic and have an analog vibe that is full, with a tight low presence, detailed mids, and bright high end that is pleasing and never harsh. This is one of the best deals available on the market. 4 Preamps w/ dynamics and 4 Inserts for a total of 8 channels of AD conversion on DB-25 or ADAT! Definately a lot of bang for the buck and an outstanding unit.
Four fantastic preamps and 4 inserts of UA A/D Conversion is a fantastic deal!
This 4 Channel preamp allows a blending of Tube & Class A in the preamp to taylor to your liking and source material. Has "1176" style flavored Dynamics on each channel w pad / phase / 48V Phantom and 2 settings for compressor. Features 8 channels of excellent A/D conversion up to 192, 4 for preamps and 4 as inserts you can use for other studio equipment. (At 192 only 4 of the 8 channels work) This unit is worth twice what they are asking for it! Preamps are the 710 and sound great on all sources. I start in the Class A side and blend in the tube warmth and character needed. If you put it all the way to the tube side you will notice the noise floor, though class A side has negligible noise. I have used the inserts for converting many sources and the converters sound warm and musical. I really like the built in compressor when recording electric guitars or ambient / Room mics. The pre also really shines on vocals. I bought mine when they were offering a free Octo-Core which helped me decide to pull the trigger. Even without it, it would have been an excellent purchase for what I feel I received. A studio full of these pres really would need no others.
