small, but good

Kar1l, 16.04.2018
I recently decided it was time to upgrade from the built in preamps in my Focusrite Sapphire to a 'real' external preamp. My budget was about 600 EUR. Afer a LOT of online research, I narrowed my options down to 6 preamps, in roughly the same price range. The preamps were:


ART Pro MPA II
Warm Audio TB12 Tone Beast
Black Lion Audio B173 Preamp
FMR Audio RNP 8380
Warm Audio WA73
Focusrite ISA One Analog

As I will be using the preamp mostly for vocals and bass, I tested both those signals.
I plugged my Ibanez 600 in passive mode into my BSS DI, into the preamp. For vocals, I hooked up my SM7B straight into the preamp, into Logic X. The results:

The FMR Audio RNP8380 is a dual channel preamp in a super small case (especially compared to the others on this list). It sounded great on vocals, with a lot of smooth, round gain. On bass I felt it lacking, clipping more easily, and sounding dull. Also, it doesn't have a lot of options. But it plays very well with an SM7B.

Beautiful transparent sound

Francis524, 15.05.2013
I have owned this 2-channel pre-amp for just over a couple of months, and already have used it on vocals for several recordings. It is transparent, clean and sounds lovely both with a Shure SM7 & a Neumann TLM-103.
There are lots of similar products out there in terms of price and sound quality but I don't think I'll find another pre-amp with better sound and cost per channel.
Like the other FMR products, the 1/3 rack space is really useful for the smaller studio. If anything, clearer output metering would be useful but that is what I use my interface metering for.
