Hello, I'm using a couple of nice mics, and a little compression along with some BBE at the insert of my Mackie board. The vocal sound that I'm getting is very good, as are any other sounds that I record with that set-up.
I have read many opinions on the use of mic-preamps. Many experts have written that a great board ( even a mackie ) and a good mic are all that is needed, others say that a good pre-amp is a must.
I just don't want to part with a good chunck of change to find that it was a waste.
I'm looking at the dbx 586 Dual Channel Tube Mic Preamp as well as a few others, but it is a tough call. Help!
