Good sound

It sounds truly magnificent compared to all the preamps in the various low cost mixers that I have been used to. Clean, transparent, noiseless.

Finally found...

Before trying this gear I thought that the golden rulett "track with Neve and mix with SSL" is fully truth. Now... I would say, that due to the two different harmonic distortion modes this practice should be changed. Track with SSL, and mix with SSL is at least as good by using this preamp. Pristine sound quality, massive built, versatility - all in one. I'm using it with ssl12 via the ADAT connection. The Quad preamp sounds way better than the ssl12, real console quality. The rest (dynamics, EQ, etc) you can add it in the DAW. The result is... brutally good. Highly recommended versatile stuff for relatively cheap. This is something what you can not get via preamp emulations regardless the the manufacturer of the plugin. It's simply hot.

Du SSL quoi !

J'ai réfléchi et hésité avec un 1073 de Neve Stéréo, oui ce n'est pas le même prix. Ayant déjà le fusion et le bus + je m'attendais à de la qualité. Et ce fut le cas. Je m'en sers essentiellement pour les voix et les guitares. Attention aux drives, le clean est sans appel, le troisième est à utiliser avec précaution, cela peut vite devenir ingérable. Avec quelques boutons, tout est la et vous avez LE son SSL
