Nothing more simple, it's a preamp ...


I use only the voices, and particulierment live, but I'm sure he would be perfect for the studio and other sources.
the "key" SPL is perfect for me.


Less than a year as I have, but I never part with it even if he comes to die I bought a direct!
most is the color, and all the extras SPL
the least is that I scorched the lamp after one week, because (apparently related) of a voltage generated by the 48V (not all inclusive explained that the electronics has given new life the beast ...)
I work with RME, Presonnus, Avalon, TLA, but more for the studio, Live is perfect on a voice accompanied by a small KMS105 families.
Obviously, this is my humble opinion, we will say that the grain of the singer is also something, at least fully satisfied.
