Fantastic new mic pre!Published on 12/14/10 at 13:37
Using this mic pre is about as easy as it gets with mic pres. There aren't any compressors or EQs built into it as it's a simple mic-pre. Therefore it has a pretty basic functionality. There is a knob for input gain. There are also five switches, one for 1/4" input, one for the mic line input, one for phantom power, a -20 db pad and one for phase flip. Using this mic-pre is really simple if you've used API mic pre's or others like them. I haven't used a manual for this mic pre but I didn't need one as I knew exactly what I was doing.
This is a phenomenal sounding microphone pre-amp. I'd really have to say that it's one of the better ones I've used for the price range. It's up there with a lot of the other stuff that I've used for most of this stuff. It's got a really transparent sound that really hits hard and has quite a clear, intense sound. Of course, this is what you want in a mic pre quite often. If you have a high end condenser mic, you will get a clear signal with a lot of detail, whereas if you are using a tube mic you'll get a fantastic warm sound. Basically the mic pre is as transparent as the microphone you are using. Pretty quality overall.
I really like the sound of this mic pre. Considering that it's four channels, a mic pre of this size is really great and really only comes out to about 550 a channel. With API single-channel pres going for at least 900, this is pretty great overall. With a fantastic sound and a reasonable price, I would have to recommend this highly.
