    UTILIZATION

    use is a biblical simplicity.

    Studio (my use), the absence of the meters is not a problem since I checked the levels in the TotalMix my RME soundcard or directly into the sequencer.

    If you must enter a device with no meter, it's trickier.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Very transparent preamp. Renowned for it. Do not seek the warmth of a tube preamp.

    It does not have the cold or drought or some preamp strips. For me, the sound is right, true, pretty dynamic, without excess in one direction or the other.

    If there was something to complain about, it is precisely a lack of character, sound signature. Personally, I've just taken to have rights preamps. When I want color, I have other stuff.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for years. This is my preamp "all terrain", clean, with whom I can work with confidence when I do not want to color or I need more simultaneous inputs that do not allow me my other preamps.

    The price / quality ratio is very good. AC puts the preamp around 125 € / entry and I confess I do not see a lot of preamps that can offer such quality for this price.

    Do I recommend it? Yes and no.

    Yes someone who would like to not too expensive, a complete setup already has preamps that have a color and character.

    Yes to someone who wants to first preamp quality, a very own sound, rather law, which requires 4 inputs.

    Not someone looking for a first quality preamp for you to take voice or instruments isolated. To these, I would recommend to turn to models with fewer entries, but most pronounced sound signature.

    For my part, if mine was burning, I would resume a. But it is the RME and it is strong.

    The power supply takes a bit of everything and anything. It smells strong!!

    UTILIZATION

    Prampli a super easy to understand and very practical. small without being too small. No doc in French, damage to the power supply possibility. I wanted to be sr for the day I record the campaign o!

    SOUND QUALITY

    I have not essy background, but nothing special report on taking a vote in condenser microphone (studio project B1) and instriment (dulcimer with a microswitch via DI). The pramp Clearly, 0 background (pramp is the class A, I think).
    The QuadMic me parat clear and Fidler source.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This inspires confidence pramp ds out of his bote! the cost, he fills his office. The functions are those that you need, no frills. I think it will not make the same joke that my blue tube (1 slice borked by less than a year) because we feel that the manufacturers want to make strong. The report is qualitprix qu'honnte, it is quite possible that I offer him a small ERRF ...
    I am surprised to be following the first give my opinion ;-)

    See the website of RME.

    Using high quality components.
    Very good features.
    Very good dynamic.

    UTILIZATION

    Weaknesses:
    The manipulation of push buttons on the front is not very easy.
    The limit of the gain knobs is not very precise.
    The 12 volt power plug and the same as the kids toys!

    Strengths:
    TRS plugs handy (combined XLR and jack).
    Power possible on 12 volt battery.

    SOUND QUALITY

    If handling is not always easy for the reasons listed above, against her by audio quality is remarkable.
    With a very good transparency and a very low distortion rate, it is really suitable for recording in the field of classical music.

    With a very good transparency and a very low distortion rate, it is really suitable for recording in the field of classical music.
    On the piano, the upper octaves are very defined and crystal clear, and the first octave is what should be neither too fat nor too inflated.
    The voices of sopranos, no aggression in the "strong" and bass voices are perfectly chiseled and precise.
    On training and orchestral choirs, no complaints, no intermodulation distortion.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This preamp, makes no heat, it is transparent, then it will certainly appeal not all!
    For the singing variety, there is much more suitable.
    For the opera and classical music, combined with the neumann and Shoeps is perfect.

    If it again, I bought one because it remains a benchmark in transparency.

    UTILIZATION

    The config is simple trs trs but we know its a little microphones because it is neither seen nor nitre peak-meter. Only the intensity of a green LED varies with the signal and a red LED lights when it is saturated trs summary. But if only one could see the level on the recorder or squenceur, no worries. Manir any one feels that this material is made to align the number pramp is naturally an economy of space is made, and the manufacturer makes us also share a concern for lgert and transportabilit ... WON

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is perfectly fine and even good for that price pramps (400 pramps the 4 ...). They are prcis ractifs and they do not have the softness and flexibility of pramplis lamp, but I would say the contrary, it is a little chattering, but musical. J'hsite even use the word "funky" because it is unusual for a pramp, yet it does. It must be taken trs good for ambience and classic as trs trs law and fairly neutral prcis, ildonne even a little impact, promiscuity catches of all that might sound a bit "drowned" or "remote" trs so good for choirs or other formal training. Be careful not to stick cepandant micro-mdium too high with my Rode NT-2A is almost aggressive.
    But catches of the voice a little punchy red hot, funky guitars, bass, rock / mtal or battery in the same style trs trs is good!

    OVERALL OPINION

    If I compare my Goldmike, it sounds more "fit-dedant" and less sweet and ar the latter, it is a bit more edge, raw ... But it is normal for such estla diffrence between that lamp and transistor .... However, it remains equally prcis and dynamic and I think a quec'est trs pramp good in its class in price. I just wish that there have not Pad-20dB in order to put in front of big box or snare without praying for a not saturated, but I do not regret this purchase at all, I particulirement'm even happy!

    See website RME.

    UTILIZATION

    I use the extra QuadMic in the Cantar during filming to increase the number of microphone inputs. I use 12v battery powered.


    SOUND QUALITY

    In addition to HF receivers usually rather trendy, I used the QuadMic with microphones Schoeps MS-stereo recording moods. It is clean tes, the gain is sufficient and the noise level is very satisfactory. I find the same grain on these microphones compared to preamps Cantar.

    RME Audio QuadMicPublished on 04/03/10 at 13:04
    The RME Audio QuadMic is a four channel microphone preamplifier that is made in Germany. It is designed to be brought on the go for mobile recording, as it's small size allows you to transport it easily and quickly. However, it can be used in non-mobile situations as well. QuadMic has four dual XLR and 1/4" inputs and four 1/4" line outputs, all of which are in the back of the unit. I guess that this will fit inside a rack casing, but it is only about half the size across, so you'd need two of them to fit it in perfectly.

I guess that this will fit inside a rack casing, but it is only about half the size across, so you'd need two of them to fit it in perfectly.

    UTILIZATION

    The make up of the RME Audio QuadMic is very straight forward and simple to follow. Each of the four mic preamps has a knob for gain and buttons for +48 volt phantom power, a lo cut option, and for phase. It also has LED meters for your signal, phantom power on/off, and clipping. There really isn't all that much to know beyond these basic parameters, so a manual won't be necessary for most users.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound quality is a bit above average with the RME Audio QuadMic, especially considering the compact nature the preamp. While designed for mobile recording uses, the QuadMic is definitely more than just a compact set of preamps, as I've only used these inside the recording studio and not on the go. Either way you use them, it is basically the same - it's just nice to have the option to move them easily if needed. The QuadMic can be used to record just about any application, as I don't feel that they favor one over another, they are in general decent enough sounding mic pres for all sorts of situations. This certainly wouldn't be my first choice for a mic pre, but if you need four extra channels of pres, the QuadMic will do the job most times.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the price, the RME Audio QuadMic is a great deal. While the preamps don't sound all that much better than those you'd find on most audio interfaces, keep in mind that they are really designed just to offer an extra set of preamps to users in need. If you've got an audio interface where you have the inputs but need more mic preamps like a Digi 002 for example, the RME Audio QuadMic offers an inexpensive solution to expand. So while ideal for mobile recording, the QuadMic will help out users of all types...
