Focusrite Novation is introducing the ISA Two, the latest addition to the ISA family of premium mic preamps and audio processors, at this year’s Prolight + Sound. The ISA Two is a dual-mono, transformer-based microphone preamplifier that features two of Focusrite’s classic premium ISA-range mic/line/instrument preamps, each capable of providing +80dB of clean gain.

Each channel has switchable balanced insert points, variable high-pass filter and variable input impedance, which allows users to get the best results from any microphone.

Other key features include selectable input impedance, separate instrument and line inputs, and eight-step LED meters.

In other news, Focusrite Novation has appointed ex-Digidesign man Dave Frocker to the position of managing director. Owner and incumbent managing director Phil Dudderidge will remain fully engaged with the company as executive chairman, focusing on corporate and business development matters. 

Dudderidge said: "Focusrite has grown more than 167% over the past three years, and the time has come to bring new management leadership into the business to enable the next phase of growth. Dave Froker is not only an old friend but the best qualified candidate to take over from me that I could imagine."

Frocker will be relocationg from California to take up the post.
