All user reviews for the Mindprint En-Voice
-What Technology? (analog, digital, tube...)
Analogue, tube & transistors.
- What available effects, or type of effects, are there?
Preamp, semi-parametric 3 band EQ with parametric mids, compressor, tube saturation.
- What connection types are there?
Line in & out on jack + XLR.
Mic in on XLR with Phantom power switch on the back.
Instrument in on the front panel.
- Is it rackable, or in rack form?
Regular 19" unit.
- Is the general configuration/setup simple?
Yes, straightforward, plenty of switches in case you ever need them...high-pass filter etc.
- Can you easily get a good sound?
Kind of, yes.
- Is the manual clear and sufficient?...
Never had it.
- Is the sound of your instruments or your microphones faithfully reproduced?
Is the pre-amp transparent or does it color the sound?
This is not very transparent, but then again it's got a tube in the front window so do you really want it to be transparent?
This is no high-end piece of gear and i think it was kind of expensive given the sound, but is there much to complain about? I'm not sure. It's a very decent piece of kit. With the optional digital out it becomes quite interesting, but that is extra...and i think it should have been included for that money (almost £400 i think).
Don't expect this to make your mic sound fantastic, it won't. Sounds ok on a bass guitar, though.
Does the compressor work wonders? Not really, but it's quite powerful so one can't complain.
It does its job.
- For how long have you been using it?
- What thing do you like most/least about it?
It was there.
Lent to me for free by a friend. Still is.
- Did you try many other models before getting this one?
I used to have a DBX286a, sold it. Would sell this too if it was mine!
The DBX at least was also a gate and deesser, plus it was much much cheaper.
Maybe it had more hiss though...
Also have an ART Tube MP but hardly comparable...
- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Too expensive. Find something cheaper or something much more expensive and better.
Overall, i find that next to the very old DBX286a it doesn't do enough.
If you can afford it, check out the SPL Channel One...
Le Garage Studio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A lamp for?"
Here it is below. This is a good preamp, which makes the work being sought, but that could happen in all sincerity lamp. She really impress your guests as a small site with its small window, but its usefulness is ... zero. Transistors working for this beast are sufficient to bring the little hair on some heat sources (by pushing the input gain, it colors). It is otherwise a good bike. On the vote, or bass.

LoEnzo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The Swiss Army Knife!"
The lamp operates only on the floor EQ / Compressor.
50 and 100Hz low cut that's good!
I installed 19 "in my home studio connected only output / XLR input because I do not use the line input XLR in my case.
I use it on vocals and acoustic / electric guitars.
The available effects are noticeable on the compression and saturation of the lamp allows for a slightly more acute / saturated sound.
Effects we can say but personally I think it's great not particularly convincing saturation of the lamp is very light and perceptible mainly voice.
But it's very nice to have!
It is very easy to setup, very versatile in the connector.
I could hardly read the manual because it is very easy to understand how it works with a little logic.
Having used a lot of audio plugins we quickly understand how it works.
This gives a very good sound, no significant gains breath with 3/4 with the pre-amp alone!
He does his job very well 10
I tried with and without the effects can be seen a difference especially with compression that provides everything a compressor must provide.
I plugged several microphones, a AT8033, AT2020, Rode NT1A ... the result is the appointment.
It is fairly transparent when used only in pre-amp, a slight coloration on the voice with appreciable saturation lamp ... but it is very light.
We like it or not like!
I love it clears.
I use it recently, but I love this pre-amp, plus it is beautiful!
This is my first and I did not want to put a fortune on occasion.
Difficult to compare with other things, what is certain is that it is 1000 times better than pre-amp 01v my first generation!
I love that versatility because little do many things with ...
Some say it is not great for bass, I have not tried!
But for voice and guitar is top!
For the price I paid! Of course I would do this choice mostly closed in the same condition in which I bought eyes!
Thank you Samuel

thug91's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
very simple configuration, you plug the buttons are aluminum and ca'est is turned off!
The sound is beautiful right now with this envoice. The prampli ammen transparency fairly neutral although there have always sound a little color! h yes, it's not a pr to 3000 euros either. But it trs Detailed end ... trs it go well for rap or R & B song!
The tube has sat when it was used with prcaution, for my part I do not use it since jRecording that voice. Under the tube sat voice can quickly become ugly, trs ca saturates quickly, the sound is more faithful, he loses in the presence of a defect believe that this could bring him to the fire, not, it might sound " I find this view nengage than me. " But for an instrument like guitar ca can.
It'll be two years since I use it. In first place with a Studio Projects C1mk2, then with a Neumann TLM193 or the sound is almost perfect (there's always more biensur)
Most would, because of its price today to 300 euros OCCAZ is the best e qualitprix quis do to catch voice.
Of course with a budjet of 300 euros that choice I will without hesitation.

cyssoux's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Vritable Settings, direct buttons.
Analog jack, XLR imput before.
Using ultra simple front panel to complte
His fi amricain (transistor), trs clean, natural warmth thanks its compressor "lampsquot;. The argument is powerful and prcis, we do everything.
Manuel not Necessary for insider Discoveries easy for the novice.
Crystal clear, even in naturally boost bypass, hard not to use it.
The characters of pramp effective, universal, affecting all styles not to brake.
10 years without ever wanting to change
Everything is accessible from the front, a simple, efficient, no complaints.
Quality price ratio? The best on the market without dowsing.
I use it again, I record the mixed voices, instruments such guitar / bass (I work with professionals ...). Ms. scne on a small dose (as powerful) has become indispensable.

reXet's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Semiparametric EQ bass and high, medium for the parametric
In short, the standard for a preamp to do everything.
(8 / 10 as one would hope the digital output as standard, not optional as well as a limiter)
No eccentricity on the preamp. Gain control for preamp, EQ and compressor 3: All you need is easier to use. I'll not put 10/10 for I loved the engagement of the 48V button on the front with an LED to indicate its activity.
Overall I am quite satisfied with the quality of the audio preamp because of its price. The EQ section is effective and compressor performance while providing a little color with the lamp. I just wish the breath generated by the threshold of the compressor and a slight lack of dynamics in the preamp: it is a bit soft.
It's been a year since I have and I am delighted to have started with a preamp to the quality / price excellent. All the tools needed for good sound are present and the unit is very easy to use. Its neutral side allows you to attack any kind of sound recording effectively. If I take it again over the range but I think it's a great preamp for its first steps in home studio with quality equipment at an affordable price.
For the anecdote, some banks of the Scarbee (www.scarbee.com) renowned for their excellent quality were recorded via the preamp ... I also now composed

strobo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Between DI, EQ 3-band semi-para, compressor lamp (Ruby 12AX7) and numrique option regarding the one I bought.
I / O lines are DDouble jack / XLR, same as mic with switchable phantom power supply on the back of the BTE.
Between Instrument (Z = 1Mohm) in SETTING THE faade with gain. The instrument automatically switches between the other entries.
There is above, not much wrong.
The configuration is relatively simple from the time o we know what we bought and that some adj exprience in the Contents (para EQ, compressor)
The sound is at once difficult to plant the APRS reading the doc. If we go slowly, it has a nice grain indniablement (mic: Rode NT1a, SM58 and between instruments for my guitar electro-acoustic).
I pass a Journe play with, and we end up quickly understand how to get sound even much better by playing with the saturation / compression.
Trs's all logical, functional, falls under the fingers as they say ...
I was surprised on a standard voice (mine), in the sense that doing nothing is ringing a pro right away. The highs are sweet and never be aggressive, it's really silky. Ct instrument, also has the surprise. The guitar goes into the compressor with a little spring immediately legalization pro. Derrire do anything. You can save as and the sound is l.
Overall, the Envoice is fairly neutral, but not enough to push him much and get the grain. It's really a good rev for me. Especially we can saturate the tube without forcment use compression. Just for "Global Warming" gnrer the signal and harmonics.
I did that during a test Journe (fawn intensive), but I was just taking a single vote for a song and made several guitars ... So I saw the point and it is great. Trs a really good camera that can not dcevoir.

SENDRA's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
The use of this strip is very simple, custom settings are easily identifiable, we can understand what we do.
to get the big sound, however, requires some rglages intelligent, but with time we eventually get there. compltement both novice Contents miking, I will appreciate the fast trs warmth and roundness of sound. the manual is readable but nothing beats learning by trial and error!
There is an empty color thanks (or event, according to) the lamp, which goes hand in hand with a warmth and roundness interesting. I use it and I am satisfied with respect to the catch of his voice, saxophone and even a piano. IDAL would be to pair it with a deuxime envoice for the stro warm.
However, we regret the absence of limitation that would help us in the mix.
Used for almost two years, I am satisfied and think trs buy me a deuxime, note the version MINDPRINT TRIO SPDIF trs interssante pramp including a headset and microphone to communicate with the 'instrumentalist that is recorded, very practical.
what is apprcie is the roundness of sound and its relative easy use
lack a limiter and an indicator of the functioning of 48v, but it was from a good product

sebalto's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Well just to say that mfiance signal because it is not in the manual but the compressor provides an automatic gain: you lower the threshold, the gain was up. One of the pots opposite values, the threshold fact I think. Otherwise if you want you can put it in like any compressor limiter: the threshold and max compression + high as possible (that is, the lowest possible + MODEL on this if I remember correctly)
