Get the most out of your mic preamps. Use your preamps and line-level saturation devices, or pad their output so you can drive them harder.

The L2P is a two-channel, balanced line/mic pad with two attenuation options. The -10dB setting is perfect for padding the output of mic preamps so you can run them hot without clipping your converters. The -30dB setting is a "line-to-mic" pad that allows you to run tracks directly from your audio interface or mixer to the inputs of your preamps.


  • Selectable -10dB or -30dB pads
  • Two channels
  • Excellent matching between channels for stereo operation
  • Line-to-mic pad

    Another fantastic kit from DIYRE

    Does exactly what it should, well designed, great parts, and crazy affordable. Couldn't ask for a better executed kit!

    Great way to get your feet wet

    Bought this kit as a trial run before building a more complex module. Took about 20mins, instructions were spot on. And it works great w/ zero noise. Only thing I would add to the instructions is to make sure the XLR jacks are fully seated BEFORE soldering, they will tilt. Just bought the Colour Palette and can’t wait for it to get here ! Highly recommend DIYRE kits

    Great first build

    This was the first time I ever build something and I enjoyed it. Had very little problems with it and was overall easy to build. Soundwise, it does what it's supposed to.

    I bought this box to add microphone preamp color to track and this is it!
    It just took 15 minutes to assemble and this gives unlimited possibilities to try.
    Worth buying.
