ISA Two stands it,s ground!I have mic preamps that cost well over twice of what this one cost, but they don,t sound right on my voice for vocals. They are too colored! And, I wanted a cleaner, but not sterile sounding dual mono mic preamp for acoustic guitar and keyboards, etc. So I read a ton of reviews online, and liked what I read and decided to try this. So I called my sales engineer Matt Adams, and he said that I couldn,t go wrong, and he was right! The ISA Two, is perfect for my voice and sounds outstanding on acoustic guitar, and will work on any instrument, but what I really like is the variable impedance, high pass filter, and 80db of clean gain for ribbon and dynamic mics. And, it holds it own ground with other highend mic pres as well! A great value for sure. Thanks, Matt!

ISA Two is the One!I owned the ISA One first and was so impressed by the quality and value ratio of the product. (clean & quiet.), that I decided to add two more channels of quality preamps....hence, the ISA Two. Love these preamps. Great service, too. As always.

Gerat sound!The ISA two is a great unit. I am producing a singer/songwriter and using it for acoustic guitar(the z options were great for a ribbon on 12th fret) bass (electric jazz bass sounds great thru instrument in), percussion and vocals. Recording vocals with this is very nice. You can work the amount of clean/dirty with all the options. Plus it plays nice with my dbx160x via the insert, (ps-i love having an insert on/off button- great for a/b.) good work focusrite!

Great Go-ToThis thing's wonderful - it's one of thos epieces of gear you "forget about" in a good way - it does its job, sounds great, and suits a lot of applications. I've been using mine for vocals and stereo drum overheads more than anything - just excellent, especially considering the price point. Won't be going anywhere anytime soon!

Perfect for my needsBought this preamp for my project studio because it was the right price for me for 2 channels. Previously I was using a UA solo 610, other than just going straight into the interface, and while that is a marvelous unit I needed 2 inputs to try some mid side recording with a AKG c214 and c414. This thing is a huge bang for the buck. It sounds very very good and easy to use. I only gave it a 4 because I havent had it long enough to explore all the possibilities it looks like it may provide.

Great transparent sound with just enough characterI have a small home studio and this is the perfect piece to get a good line level of basically any instrument. Every home studio should have this versatile piece.
