Audiofanzine FR's review

Mindprint TRIO
(Originally written by ynosang/translated from Audiofanzine FR)


- Is it easy to make settings?

When you open the box, you think: Wow, that's a lot of buttons!

But after only one week you'll have discovered everything.

- Is it easy to get the right sound?

Impressive quality considering the price of this small box!

Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive?

Yes but I threw it into the garbage can!!

I flicked through it when I bought the device but I like learned by doing.


The sound quality is perfect, especially the preamp that sounds extremely natural.


- How long have you been using it?

About one year.

- How long have you been using it?

Pros: class-A preamp

Easy to use

Phantom power


Cons: I don't know exactly...

The EQ could be improved

- Did you try any other models before buying it?


- How would you rate its value for money?

It's impossible to find a better device in this price range. It took me several months to make up my mind before buying it because I did a thorough research on all available devices.

- Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?

Are there any other options????

Mindprint TRIO
Everything has been said in prior reviews. But it should be noted that it was (because it is no longer manufactured) a single machine that has not been replaced by Mindprint, and there is nothing similar on the market today. Too bad.


Nothing to report, the operation and instructions are clear, everything works as expected.
The worrying thing is that the unit itself gets very hot, and that over time the switch DAW monitoring has become erratic and it generates a breath (rather crachottis) in the left channel which lost to the passage level. So I no longer use part of the monitoring device. The line input is sometimes some weird stuff too, like feeble level and hop of a sudden (after 1 min roughly) normal, as if something is free it and after it works nickel ... Curious, but you get used to.


The preamp (which is a strip actually) I think is very good for a machine of this price, I was using before the preamp in my rack ... Digi002 That day and night! No discussion is so obvious. Its compressor "one knob" did a good job with finesse. And not to mention the DI / Instrument which is just really good if not extraordinary, frankly better than DI Avalon very very expensive, is to say! Indeed, one senses immediately affiliation with the Mindprint Envoice (especially the Mk I, Mk II is because the less I think) which I think is by far simply the best preamp in its price range!


Purchased in England here almost 3 years in a shop where he had served in demo, so for a price level with the daisies. But concerns (see above) were quick to make themselves known (roughly 1 year after purchase). A pity because this machine very comprehensive and practice is unique, having said that I still still part preamp that works well, and € 120, it is frankly no price to pay for results.

Strip, XLR and jack (line and instrument)
transistor pre amp, class A
cut down, three bands eq
A / D and D / A 24-bit, 44.1, 88.2, 48 and 96 khz
Direct output RCA out, optical SPDIF in conexion with the sound card or audio rca
outputs for three monitors (one jack and two RCA 6.35)
two headphone jack 6.35
insert jack (jack out in 6.35)
talk back microphone


Setup could not be more simple for me, I don not need to have 8 in and 8 out, but of a single channel of audio to capture the votes taken correct! So I plug my mic in XLR (microphone rode ntk tube), I did a lil of adjustable eq, the trio converted (andi converters from the port) and sends it in Nuendo by spdif optical conexion (48 kHz for my part , c is more than enough).
frankly sound and nickel, the dynamics and all that it takes to get a more than satisfactory results.
c is in fact that I adore, this little gem is not bocoup of adjustments to make (c quend is important you work alone), I slightly reduces the bass and midrange boost and I barely highs (for my voice well on). I do not bocoup appeal to the comp, and I touch my face very few plug ins on the PC
for the manual is simple, clear and precise


The sound is excellent (I have not yet connected n d c is for instruments but soon)
the péampli is transparent (Class A)
j have the impression that my microphone and more sensitive, there is a bright, something that I had not before (comparable to the acquisition of voice that I did it with a Numann U87)
before the trio, I had a slice JOEMEEK Three q, and I must admit I was disappointed ke j, there is stuff to set up and the sound of my microphone was too serious medium even boosting the treble. in fact the microphone is now balanced, c to d that using some plug ins like EQ Timeworks I can see the frequencies and actually act on some of them because they are all there ...
j have the impression that my microphone and more sensitive, I made my voice taken with half the gain, without warning and it pete


I used the last two or three months
is frankly not least, for me j finds even more than what I was looking to leave! I recall that I was looking for a strip to catch votes (one at a time!) j and of course had not the means to invest in the Avalon or even in a eureka!
for value, we must say that I got the 199 euros in a playback (promotion of egg), today it costs 339 euros, so we will say that I've been lucky!
yes I chilled this choice, but at the same price, maybe even at 339 euros if I had had!
