    Specifications

    Mic Input Response
  • Gain range = 0dB to 60dB in 10dB steps + 20 dB of variable gain
  • Input Impedance, variable as follows:-

    (Switched Impedance setting Equivalent Input Impedance at 1kHz)
    Low = 600 Ohms
    ISA110 = 1400 Ohms
    Med = 2400 Ohms
    High = 6800 Ohms

  • EIN (equivalent input noise) = -126dB measured at 60dB of gain with 150 Ohm terminating impedance and 22Hz/22kHz band-pass filter
  • Noise at main output with gain at unity (0dB) = -97dBu measured with a 22Hz/22kHz band-pass filter
  • Signal to noise ratio relative to max headroom (9dBu) = 106dB
  • THD at medium gain (30dB) = 0.0009% measured with a 1kHz -20dBu input signal and with a 22Hz/22kHz band-pass filter
  • Frequency response at minimum gain (0dB) = -0.5dB down at 10Hz and -3dB down at 125kHz
  • Frequency response at maximum gain (60dB) = -3dB down at 16Hz and -3dB down 118kHz
  • CMRR=98dB (Channel 1, 1kHz, maximum gain with +24 dBu input)
  • Crosstalk Channel to Channel: with 10dB@1kHz input to chA, chB output =104dBrA. With 10dB@10kHz input to chA, chB output = 84dBrA

    Line Input Response
  • Gain range = -20dB to +10dB in 10dB steps + 20 dB of variable gain
  • Input Impedance = 10k? from 10Hz to 200kHz
  • Noise at main output with gain at unity (0dB) = -96dBu measured with a 22Hz/22kHz band-pass filter
  • Signal to noise ratio relative to max headroom (24dBu)=120dB
  • Signal to noise ratio relative to 0dBFS (+22dBu) = 118dB\
  • THD at unity gain (0dB) = 0.001% measured with a 0dBu input signal and with a 22Hz/22kHz band-pass filter
  • Frequency Response at unity gain (0dB) = -0.3dB down at 10Hz and -3dB down at 200kHz

    Instrument Input Response
  • Gain range = 10dB to 40dB continuously variable
  • Input Impedance:
    High = greater than1M?
    Low =greater than 300k?
  • Noise at minimum gain (+10dB) = -92dBu measured with a 22Hz/22kHz band-pass filter
  • Noise at maximum gain (+40dB) = -62dBu measured with a 22Hz/22kHz band-pass filter
  • THD at minimum gain (+10dB) = 0.001% measured with a 10dBu input signal and with a 22Hz/22kHz band-pass filter
  • Frequency Response at 10dB gain with -10dB input = 10Hz-100kHz +/- 0.6dB
  • Frequency Response at 40dB gain with -40dB input = -2.5dB down at 10Hz and 0dB at 100kHz


    High Pass Filter
  • Roll off = 18dB per octave 3 pole filter
  • Fixed Frequency 75Hz measured at the 3dB down point


    Meters
  • Moving coil (MC) meter is factory calibrated to 0VU = +4dBu with 1kHz sinewave. With the VU Cal button pressed the meter can be adjusted on the rear panel to allow 0VU to equal +10dBu to +26dBu with the centre detent being equal to +22dBu.
  • Peak LED meters calibrated in the detent position for 0dBFS = +22dBu, calibration is adjustable on the rear panel to allow 0dBFS to equal +10dBu to +26dBu
  • Routing for MC and Peak1 meter is after the HPF, pre insert send or switched post insert return. Peak2 is always pre ADC channel 2, which can be fed by external input or Instrument input.
  • LED levels are as follows when peak calibration is set to center detent on the rear panel. (This is when using the internal ADC).

    0 = +22dBu
    -2 = +20dBu
    -6 = +16dBu
    -12 = +10dBu
    -18 = +4dBu
    -42 = -20dBu

  • ISA Series Transformer-based Pre-amplifier
    Encased in a rugged and portable chassis, ISA One offers the classic Focusrite microphone pre-amplifier at its lowest cost to date.

    Stereo 192kHz ADC
    Cutting-edge conversion technology, incorporating Focusrite analogue circuitry to deliver the best A-D performance in its class (Dynamic range of 119dB).

    Flexible Independent D.I. Channel
    ISA One is ideal for both engineers and demanding performers alike, featuring independent gain control, an output for routing to an amp, an independent XLR output on the rear and routing to the optional ADC.

    Switchable Impedance
    Choose one of four carefully selected input impedances, including the original ISA 110 setting, to suit any microphone.

    Headphone Output with Volume Control
    ISA One can feed either a sum of the two inputs to the headphones output, or an external stereo cue mix (such as a stereo mix feed from an interface) via two TRS Jack inputs on the rear of the unit.

    Dedicated Insert Point
    Allows you to place extra processing between the pre-amplifi er or D.I. and the optional converter, such as an EQ or compressor.
