M-Audio Audio Buddy
everything has been said




I wanted to try it to see if there was a difference with the pre amp I was using (ULTRAGAIN, 100 and 200 mic and a tube TubePre art)
I find it very clean, it's weird there is a button to adjust the way and no master. otherwise, it's simple, it works well and it's true no breath. on the other hand I can say that contrary to what I have or I have to put a studio microphone gain in three quarts to have enough volume.


I find good is that it has two inputs that can be run simultaneously. I bought it secondhand, but 40 euros for the same price you can also purchase a Behringer ULTRAGAIN PRO with 2200 mic as two simultaneous inputs and I confess that for the voice I prefer. According to the tastes, colors ...
if not what is good is that it is very small and portable, solid and well made.
I do not buy another.

I put 8 becaufe has to do the simplest of the simplest but nevertheless, everything is there for the price and thus force the use that is in a.
9a deserved more if for example there was more input available, but then need to type in a higher price gammede
What I also like is the small size and versatility of the thing.


There also is easy to use, there was no wiggle hours


Well, yes, the risk of offending some, I am a bomb, it's the sound I wanted.

With no top gear, it sounds excellent.
I just have a dynamic mic Senn, all made clear sound, both in voice in making acoustic guitars.
But where there has been amazed that for instruments connected to it directly.
We connected a Universe and a Jazz Bass, everything sounds with just a pet 'reverb in Cubase SX is the top, we just took the time to set the levels that's all! The trick is warm, clear, and lets the grain of the instruments.
So I ask myself in concert not to buy another and plug in any live and let the effects manage mobile automation.
I'll sell my multi effect that leaves me a lot of noise.

€ 70 for second-hand, I do not regret at all at all


I want another since there are only two entries

Small in size, and price, it inspires confidence in a case namoins mtallique robust and quality in some other knobs and switches ... And height of luxury, it offers a intrrupteur to dye ....

On paper its technical specifications are a suprieur its competitors 'lamps' ...


A gain knob per channel and a intrrupteur to activate or not the phantom power supply on both channels, not rocket science ...


It is transparent ... trs for comparison had a VTB-1 before and if the sound seemed "imprssionnant" in dpart we quickly realized that espce distortion that gives the potato its just be trsg Nante ... plus it possde a headroom greater good ...


Sr Although everything is relative to the notice I take Whereas in the price range in which it is pramp ... for 90 was a two-channel pramp probably better than a VTB-1 (VTB-1 finally had all of the same made on a super voice, we can not withdraw ca) ... APRS is to give you a color, but if color = distortion, there are plugs that are well trs ca ... : D

Report quality unbeatable price ...

M-Audio Audio Buddy
Very few of breath, very transparent.
All you need in connectors.


Use with the M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 ... very efficient ... very very clean!
better sound with the FA-66 or Firebox!
Can be used with all types of microphones: ribbon (which requires a lot of gain), etc ...


Very good sound quality! much higher than the ART Tube, and others.


Great little preamp.
Incredible price / quality ratio.
ITS PRO! (Yes!)
In association with the card M-Audio Audiophile 24/96, I got results bluffing!
up to my Motu Ultralite!
Ideal for the home studio very clean.
