For decades, the concept of pop music was synonymous with Trident Studios, the pioneering facility in the heart of London's Soho district.

Their client list reads like a who's who of pop: The Beatles, Elton John, David Bowie, the Bee Gees, Genesis, Frank Zappa, Joe Cocker, Kiss, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Marc Almond, Soft Cell, Queen, the Rolling Stones, Thin Lizzy, Tina Turner, T-Rex, and Yes.

At the heart of the studio's sound was the Trident A Range console. It became so well known for its gorgeous, musical EQ and the full, rich tone it imparted soon, studios around the world were placing orders for an A Range of their own. Although only 13 were ever made, they created a legacy that continues to this day.

Now, thanks to Arturia's groundbreaking True Analog Emulation technology, you too can experience the incredible sound-shaping power of the legendary Trident A Range preamp and EQ.

In the 60s and 70s, a period many consider to be the "golden age" of the recording studio, the preamps within their bespoke mixing consoles - like the Trident A range - were pioneering technology. Mix engineers found that, due to their analog components, the preamps would add a certain character to the audio, which gave each desk, and consequently each studio, a particular "sound". As engineers became experts with these consoles, they would use the preamps as part of their creative process; pushing them hard to create harmonically rich analog distortion, for example.

Now, thanks to the digital audio revolution and the power of modern computers, you can enjoy the best of both worlds. The Arturia Pre TridA lets you add the iconic tone of the elite, rare, virtually unobtainable preamps found in the studios that created some of the biggest hits of all time.
