Headroom Episode 7 with Michael Grace: What Is a Preamp?


Welcome to Episode 7 of Headroom with iZotope’s Director of Education, Jonathan Wyner. Each month, Jonathan and his guests discuss a fresh topic exploring the intersection of music production, music making, and technology.

In this episode Jonathan visits Michael Grace of Grace Design in Lyons, Colorado to talk about preamps, coloration, and musical equipment.

  • What is a preamp? What do people mean when they say "color" or "coloration"?

  • What defines equipment that is "musical?"

  • What did Michael Grace think when we approached him about building preamps for Spire Studio? (He thought we were crazy for asking—but it worked out!).

So check out the episode, and watch previous episodes of Headroom.
