Doesn?t do much but does it good
Bob Corey, 15.05.2018
This is a nice preamp to use in a proffessional studio or a home studio. At least for the genres of music I work on (rock, pop, folk) this is a nice unit. I bought it in order to be rest asured that I am not loosing anything preamp-wise. After some recordings I must say that this preamp is very silent in terms of hum, noise or anything. Feels very well built too. I run it straight to the A/D converters of an RME Fireface 800. Here are some thoughts:

- On *VOCALS* it warms and fulls them, the difference to my RME FireFace 800 preamps is not big, sometimes not even audible, but in general it fits the vocals a bit better into the mix. It can feel a little ritch at the low-mid area, which for some maybe a good thing for others a bad, depends on taste.
- Same goes for the *ACOUSTIC GUITARS* when they?re recorded with a microphone.
- On *ELECTRIC GUITAR* is pretty fine to record with a microphone, but very usefull for recording line-in because it gives you full control of the input volume, with the RME ff800 I shouldn?t be playing hard otherwise it?d peak, but probably you get something like a pad on other devices(?) so it is a good DI box as well.
- It can also distort the sound if you crank the input in a way that is not always bad and can be used as an effect!

You should get it if:
- you have extra money and want to improve/change your sound a just tiny tiny bit
- you really need an external pre to (let?s say) operate a compressor before the A/D or doesn?t trust his mic preamps for various reasons
Of course there are a lot of other applications it might be needed for, but I find that these two will probably interest someone that is looking to buy this one.

Do I recomend it between others? It is a fine unit at a price that many bad preamps are...but this one competes the double priced units, so if you need it, buy it.

Great sound, very simple.
PhilP, 18.08.2015
I use it for live mainly to give quality to vocals, and it does give a great amount of warm punch and quality. I have to say it's almost magic, maybe i'm just lucky that it works perfectly with my vocals. It helps the performance a lot.
The only thing I was a bit surprised about is that the module itself is actually bigger than I expected, it is really deep. So if like me you're choosing something small to travel do check measurements.
Another thing is that I didn't like it that much when pushed up all the way, the distortion I get from it is not interesting for vocals. Probably is for guitar and others. I use the gain about halfway and it gives a truly beautiful powerful quality.
I couldn't be happier for that price. I will definitely use it in the studio too and it will definitely be my go to preamp now for vocals, and surely other instruments too.
