Get the most out of your mic preamps. Use your preamps as 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 
Input Impedance 8.1k/5.5k (line out / mic out)

    I grabbed this one on a whim but it's been really useful! I can now tack any of my preamps on any track in the box to get some nice analog variation. It makes for a really neat way of getting some subtle or not-so-subtle tonal shifts on anything. The kit itself is also supremely easy to build. Cheers!

    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
