Exceptional, affordable neve-style pre/eq
GLmystery, 23.06.2018
Using this on nearly everything. Shines on ribbon mics, but the DI getting fed back through the mic pre is really smart and adds great air and colour to synths and drum machines.

Beautiful, familiar 1073 layout and colour and the build seems very high standard, but one of the EQ knobs is a little stiffer than the rest.

Highly recommended, having also tried the other similar clones. Particularly impressive at this price point.

Completely in love
Puppa, 27.11.2018
The opening is love at first sight the design is great, the weight of the beast immediately inspires confidence
Aside from the switch that seems a little weak everything is impeccable
Level one is there, the preamp is ample and colorful just enough and returns the transient wonder ... and for more fishing and color the "tone" switch is fearsome
The EQs are warm and very musical, the treble sweet and very present at the same time, the low round and mellow and HiPass ultra efficient
In comparison with what I have on hand, ie plugs emulating the 1073 (UAD / Slate) boxing directly into another category

I use it for a week to take as insert and my mixes are immediately felt, the effect "in your face" is the rendezvous a blow!

Simply love it !!
