The perfect pre
by Mike Petkau from Winnipeg, MB CanadaI'd gone through a bunch of different pre's, both tube and solid state, before landing the 2-610. My recordings have increased dramaticly in quality: they're warmer and the top end is much smoother.<... read more [+]br />

I like a lot of colour from my gear, and so if purity is what you're after, this thing ain't for you. But if you want to sound like the big boys, this is a very necessary step in that direction. close [-]
by micca fromWhen the Sweetwater rep was boasting about the 610, I thought to myself, yea ok, hearing is believing. When I first started recording with it, my first thought was that it increased the quality of my ... read more [+]tracks only slightly. But after a few months, I started to compare completed material with and without it, and the difference is huge. When coupled with a quality compressor, it delivers a warm up-front sound that sits in the mix well. Guitars, vocals, everything. If your a perfectionist and want to achieve that "commercial" sound, there is no upgrade after this. This piece of equipment will follow you for the rest of your recording career. close [-]

If your ears can't tell the difference, hire a studio engineer of any experience, and they will tell you that there is a significant improvement in audio that a great pre-amp will give you. He then pushes you aside and gropes at your set of beautiful knobs.
It will put the warmth back into your tin-like digital recording. Don't take my word for it. You need to touch this level of gear for yourself. If you don't have a store near you, spend a hundred bucks on some studio time at a facility with high end gear. Run your mix or an instrument thru it and judge for yourself which pieces of kit are right for you, before you buy something blind. It may be the best hundred bucks you spend before shelling out your thousands.
