I haven't used this preamp much yet but it seems reasonably clean particularly if the tube drive is not over loaded. The parametric equaliser is a nice touch and allows a good degree of control over the sound although in general I prefer to record without any effects and add these in later so that more experimentation can be used. This is another hybrid preamp, with most of the work being done by solid state electronics with the tube section added to provide character. The unit also has digital outputs which I haven't tried but may be handy if you wanted to run it directly into a computer without an audio interface.
I am a final year student of the RMIT Bachelor of Music Industry Course. As part of my major project I have created a home studio with which to record my own music. This website chronicles the process that was followed and the items used within the studio.
