Perfect for adding some warmth to your vocals or overdrive to your synth
Social Jay, 04.08.2020
To cut a long story short I started with a Tube500USB but quickly outgrew it's lack of connectivity. To counter this I bought a XenyxUSB mixer. Immediately I was put off by the harsh, digital, almost tinny preamps (what award did those Xenyx preamps win exactly, guys?!)... so back to the Mic100 - which I actually prefer over the Mic500USB as it offers an XLR in AND out - something the 500 doesn't. In fact, I can't think of a use case where the 500USB is any better compared to the MIC100 and separate USB interface. I find the limiter more useful than the tube modelling modes on the 500 and I like the way the 100 "counts down" the LED's as it warms the tube.

For those wondering, my main use case is game streaming but I also sometimes hard wire a synth, drum machine and sampler through the mixer to record simple pieces and I have used the MIC100 to overdrive both the synth and the sampler (on separate occasions) and for this it adds a nice crispy distortion without fattening the sound too much. Great for those 90's trance melodies and/or 00's dirty drum n bass basslines.

Highly recommended by me - if not the most "serious" piece of equipment, as many uses and above all else, makes vocals sound lovely and warm which was my main reason for buying it... all for only 30 bucks?!

C'mon, where else can you find value like this in the music hardware World?

Great piece of kit
27.07.2016
I use this in my project studio to give a little tube 'warmth' to my condenser mic. It is fantastic. It took me a while to find the perfect setting as the difference between it being 'just right' and over-driven is a very fine line, but once I found it I was really delighted with it. So much so, that now I have 2 of them for stereo micing. I would definitely recommend this product.

Just what I needed for use at home..
tpower, 20.05.2019
I got my hands n two of these preamps, just for use at home, and they are exactly what I was after. They're perfect for a multitude of applications. I use them particularly for some mics that need phantom power and for running my guitar straight in to Guitar Rig. You barely have to turn up the output to get your desired level but when you push them they rarely crack up.

The build of these preamps are solid. Metal casing seems as thought it could take a beating and come out the other end without a scratch. The tube supplied is really good, but it's also extremely easy to swap it out for whatever you have in mind.

All in all, great preamp, fantastic build. May even start bringing them in to the studio. Would definitely suit my needs there also.

Fantastic price and build quality!
GJK123, 17.02.2020
It is just what I needed!

I didn’t know anything about mic preamps until I realized I needed one!
I needed this for my Shure Sm57. Basically if I wanted to record acoustic guitar and vocals with my Shure mic I needed a mic preamp and DI Box. This gave me the extra gain (Volume) I needed to record my acoustic and vocal tracks properly.

Nice sturdy housing, good solid rubber feet, nice silver paint and solid controls Simple to use and does exactly what I need it to do.
No complaints, no issues.
100% Recommend! Fantastic price and build quality!
