    Sound Skulptor MP573 - "I love it!!!"


    I use this preamp in my home studio/project studio. As I love great electronic circuitry, I wish I could afford a Neve 1073, but since I can’t I decided to try this API500-format rendition of it. The result is a very good surprise. While I can’t ac…

    Grace Design m101 - "fixed coloring issues"


    The Grace Design M101 is a microphone preamp that cost a good amount of money. At first I didn’t think that it could possibly be worth that much and then I heard how good it made the mics in the studio sound and I was completely shocked. There are L…
