A single-channel desktop version of Black Lion Audio’s highly successful Auteur preamp design, the Auteur DT combines an ultra-high-speed front end and a transformer-coupled output stage. The combination, which we’ve seen from Black Lion before, delivers pristine nuance and detail, which is nicely balanced with a beefy, vintage-flavored assertiveness that holds its own in a mix. The Auteur DT has 60dB of clean gain on tap, so you can feel free to use your favorite ribbon mics on quieter sources. A hi-Z DI input is provided for direct injection of electric guitars, bass, keyboards, and the like. Phantom power, polarity reverse, and 10dB pad buttons complete the front-panel feature set. With its rugged, black brushed-aluminum casing and classy wooden end caps, the Auteur DT looks quite elegant sitting on your desktop. It also sports a big, silky-smooth gain control and a cool vintage-style VU meter that’s easy to read even in dim studio lighting. At Sweetwater, we like the Black Lion Auteur DT a lot. It’s versatile, well built, and sounds great!

Sounds like a record
The Auteur DT is impressively versatile. Think of it as a single channel of a large-format console that takes up very little real estate on your desktop. With its fast front end and transformer-balanced output stage, Black Lion’s proprietary “Chicago-style” circuitry has the remarkable ability to accurately capture and sonically optimize any source — mic or DI — you send through it. This results in tracks that are easier to mix into finished, polished product that “sounds like a record.”
Since 2006, Black Lion Audio has been helping musicians and engineers improve the sound of their equipment, and they’ve built a solid reputation for coaxing world-class sound out of modestly priced gear. As an outfit that cut its teeth doing acclaimed mods, Black Lion, perhaps unsurprisingly, produces innovative audio equipment of their own design that consistently outperforms its price range. The Auteur DT employs Black Lion’s latest preamp technology, which features an optimized gain stage that delivers higher gain, lower noise and distortion, and a more extended frequency response than earlier designs. Through the Auteur DT, drums sound huge and punchy; vocals sit pretty; guitars soar. No matter what the source, the Black Lion Auteur DT performs like a pro.
