Help choosing a mic pre...
I'm looking for a mic pre with digital out under $1,000.
Right now it's between the Focusrite ISA One and the Audient Mico.
Anyone have thoughts on which one of these is better? I'm looking for a clean transparent sound without sounding flat or thin. Whatever I get I want to make sure has good A/D conversion.
Which one of these is a good option?
Why only with digital out?
Just curious why does it have to have digital out?
If you can stand to have a seperate converter (interface) then your choices open up a bit in the sub $1000 price range (Presonus Eureka, ART PRO MPA II, FMR RNP, Grace M101, ISA One Analog, Daking Mic Pre One, etc...etc...).
Of the two you mentioned the ISA ONE is a great preamp, I highly recommend it, but I've only used the analog version so I can't speak for the quality of the digital conversion. I suspect it is about the same as any of the other $300-500 interfaces out there.
