    What to say? it is anything but professional and not even semi-professional.
    AH is beautiful indeed.
    No original lamp efficiency bill low, flat,
    I'M NOT RECOMMENDED, was not worth more, but rather steer you towards the PRESONUS.

    USE

    SINGLE WITHOUT EFFICIENCY
    INSIPIDUS

    SOUND QUALITY

    BAD REPRODUCION, NO EFFECTIVE CONTROL is pla t.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I tried especially not bought!
    it is to make a dco bought 10 used.
    This is BAD made in china.

    Analog preamp tube (12AX7 low voltage, I doubt very much that it brings), supplied with specific power supply.
    Mono input jack + XLR outputs for the same.
    Switches: limiter, attenuator, phantom and reverse phase.
    Seen the light meter for saturation. (Diodes)
    Compact, solid, very complete.

    I take off a point for the stupid argument "lamp" which seems to me essentially commercial.

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use.
    I found the manual clear, I'm just used to check what he endured as connectivity (both outputs can be used simultaneously, for example) and I quickly found the information I needed.

    SOUND QUALITY

    It remains a cheap preamp that goes well beyond, and I am very happy because I did not need more. The sound is ok, and the connection / setting impeccable, so we do what we want, and so far the machine seemed very reliable.
    Point of his view: Clarity ok, S / N ratio ok, does its job, sturdy, not bulky.
    My use: Repeats homestudio for microphones (vocals, guitar amp transplanted) or my electro-acoustic.
    Another use that I found interesting with my Tonelab:
    Guitar -> Tonelab Desktop -> MIC100 -> mixing desk and amp XLR jack return.
    It is a versatile tool, correct, and good to have on hand.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought used in 2006 or 2007, it has not moved since.
    Not really ... Apart compared with the MIC200, but I have not seen the interest instrument selector on this unit ... The only preamp enough.
    I would do this choice without hesitation, as adapted to my needs.

    Preamp / DI "lamp".
    Size of a DI.
    Input and output XLR and Jack.
    Phantom power (48V??), PAD, phase inversion and a "limiter" (gadget).
    Input gain, output volume, VU mêtre.
    Mechanically strong.

    UTILIZATION

    Use could not be more simple. Very correct ergonomics.
    The manual seems unnecessary given the simplicity of the object.

    SOUND QUALITY

    To be clear, we have a little cheap preamp to get a microphone to line level, to go on an online PC input or simply to feed a microphone that requires phantom.
    The sound and the S / N ratio are correct no more.

    The sound and the S / N ratio are correct no more.
    The tube (the "lamp") is there to look pretty and vaguely color the sound by a pair distortion: the tube is undernourished ("starved", hungry) and can not even find the characteristic curves for such a low anode voltage. In any case if it is non-linear we want to color the sound, it is served ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Bought around 2004 given its low price to supply a small static phantom, I go occasionally when the audio quality does not matter.
    For this purpose it is perfect, it is the equivalent of an adapter is needed from time to time.
    Pros: price, durability, reduced size.
    The -: blah sound quality, the tube is a selling point (or possibly a distortion that can not be deleted), the limit is unnecessary and inefficient gadget.

    Limit: do not use it, especially in the recording, it is horrible

    SOUND QUALITY

    For the price, that blame him? Even on a micro low sensitivity and low gain I have no breath. Transparent preamplifier as the input level is quite low.
    The lamp begins to be felt beyond, we obtain a saturation ... Not very pretty.
    I would recommend 1000 times a beginner or anyone on a budget.
    TIP: If you are passionate and brave enough, it is possible to change the lamp. Look how is a quality lamp and you will see that it's worth it.
    To me, the original lamp is not made to be biased. on the other hand, once the light changed, it is frankly very cool to play with the input level to create a beautiful saturation measured to perfection. Then adjust the output level.
    Nb: let the heat lamp for 15 minutes

    OVERALL OPINION

    The -:
    Limit unusable
    No low cut filter
    No switch

    The +:
    Unbeatable value for money
    Unbreakable indestructible indestructible
    Along race and precision potentiometers meter
    Phase inverter
    Use once the lamp changed
    Connectors and balanced outputs

    This costs 35 euros and is Berhinger. Those are the facts. If you know what you can do with!

There is hardly any breath with a gain already, so who therefore is perfectly usable, compared to most competing products at this range.

    on the other hand, nearly nonexistent color lamp too!

    OVERALL OPINION

    It is therefore especially a small booster-Swiss Army knife of sound quality surprising. It is ideal for people who want a cheap preamp, with the possibility of adding a (very) slight coloration typical "lamp".

    If you want a stronger color, then there are two options: buy a much more expensive amp (from 300-400 euros for 1 channel), or changing the lamp.

    I currently have a mesa boogie lamp in stock to test, but I have not yet been tested. It is not the loss of warranty stops me (product price "ridiculous"). But I lack time right now (not to write this critique, however!: O))

    I would do this purchase knowing what it implies: good boost with decent sound and little or no wind depending on the level of gain used. Swiss Army knife. Ability to change the lamp for a superior (not tested yet: I do an update when it is done).

    NB: I have not really tested the limiter. It will also refresh during the test lamp replacement.

    Tube preamp
    Two inputs, two outputs, and XLR

    UTILIZATION

    Easy to understand, even without the manual.

    initially, it is difficult, with little experience of making something clean, but looking for the right ration input / output, we can arrive at the correct results.
    Coupled with an AT2020, the voice of spring correctly, no noise, except the PC. Pad -20 is very interesting for vocals.

    very little (or no) breath


    Cons:

    Preamp tube.

    Jack / XLR input / output
    Gain and volume knob

    Limiter
    20dB Pad
    Phase inversion
    48V Phantom Power

    Supplied AC power (9V, 1.3A)


    For 35 €, it is strictly necessary.

    UTILIZATION

    it is very simple.

    one branch entering one of two inputs (jacks or XLR), ditto for the exit.
    whether a power supply, you press the small button 48 V.

    And we turn the gains and volume.

    It heats up a bit, but nothing too bad.

    SOUND QUALITY

    amplifies it.

    it does its job, it does not seem too blow. after, is that it colors too, not enough? I'm not good enough material to tell.

    OVERALL OPINION

    for about a year.
    I use it for:
    guitar and bass for home recording, the input line.
    Singing and instrument mic with XLR in home studio.

    I also used to live and repeat, for a 48V power supply, and to manage 2-3 instruments on the same output (by changing the volumes myself, and managing the power supply).


    he does his job. it is inexpensive, reliable now (again, concert in the dust, ok, nothing wrong).

    we'll see if it still stands in 5 or 10 years.

    for studio use, I find it does not blow much (much less than the preamp of my integrated audio card M).


    for 35 €, if you fall on a flawless model (the problem with the entry-level), it does very well what he is asked: preamplify and 48V supply.
    For the real studio, it will surely be inadequate. but hey, this is € 35, not 500.

    This is a pre-tube amp with a very simple input gain, output gain, limiter, phase reverse and phantom power +48 v.
    connectivity available is as follows: an input jack 1/4 ", an XLR output Jack 1/4" and XLR output.
    The format of the machine is relatively compact and highly resistant (metal case)

    UTILIZATION

    Operation is extremely simple manual not need to master the six buttons that control the craft.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Contrary to what one might think, the light of this pre-amp makes no noticeable heat on her. Against it is highly transparent and has good clean gain without distortion up to about 2/3 of its maximum power. It is quite possible to change the lamp current to another......

It is quite possible to change the lamp current to another and get better quality and more analog coloration.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost 2 years or more and I am completely satisfied, the value for money is unbeatable and for once Behringer has not planted because their products are not always on top ;-)
    So if it all over again I would do this purchase with your eyes closed!
    Small bb for limit which is not great.

  • Behringer Tube Ultragain Mic100 Preamp and DI with Limiter

    Behringer Tube Ultragain MIC100Published on 11/02/10 at 16:00
    This is a the table top model, not a pedal or is it a rack unit. It's about the size of a standard DI box or external hard drive.

    These run about $50. I picked it up to find out if it really does all it says it does for $50. You can get them just about anywhere that sells Behringer products.

    I like the the unit is cheap. It's lightweight. If it broke in 6 months I would not be heart broken nor angry. You get what you pay for.

    It will 'warm up' your signal with a little bit of tube warmth. Sure it isn't going to sound AMAZING, but if you're on a budget it's a great unit.

    I like that it has an XLR input as well as an instrument input. I can use this for vocals or a guitar. ......

    I like that it has an XLR input as well as an instrument input. I can use this for vocals or a guitar. The -20 DB is very helpful.

    Power is great. You can power it through Phanton Power, a power supply or by a 9 volt battery.

    The Limiter is very limiting. You can't adjust it other than your gain and output volume knobs.

    Since the unit is cheaper the construction is not on par with what I think it should be for a pro situation, but hey pros don't need to worry about budgets right?

    I mentioned before I do not think the construction is up to snuff. You will most likely set this on top of your amp and sooner or later an instrument cable with get tugged or stepped on and this unit is going to come crashing to the ground.

    I don't think it would absorb a fall, but I have not dropped mine either. I was very careful to gingerly use this.

    Bottom line is if you need a guitar, bass, vocal or keyboard DI are are on a budget it, this is great. It will get the job done for you without too much noise to boot.

    It will warm up a brittle sound to an extent but the Behringer is not a miracle worker.

    Also be careful not to tear the cord from the external transformer!

    I could not compare with other prampli the same type until now (with a Tube MP OPL at ART for example). At first, I found that many were brought prampli breath ... but more testing and APRS rglages (including with-20dB pad enabled), this concern has disappeared. In the end, prampli perfectly fulfills its function for the price, but beware, it's not a guitar amp simulator for electric! The sound is good trs I got and saw that I use prvois.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this prampli recently, but as an entertainer, I usually use prampli lamps. What j'apprcie Obviously, this is the phase inversion included with the camera, the LED output level are also practical, too bad there is not the same system of led me to the level of .... The potentiomtre gain as efficient trs, I advise you to listen the sound between, trying to have the maximum To verify that your dynamic microphone or instrument does not buckle.
