Powerful Sound!Ok so I've been in complete awe with this pre amp, I never thought something so small would make my vocal recordings so crisp, I love it and have highly recommended this product to my peers. Thank you PreSonus for such a great product and thank you Sweetwater for the amazing price :)

A great piece of equipmentThis is a great product at a good price. I used it as a preamp for an accoustic guitar at a gig last weekend. The sound was fantastic and plenty strong for the amplifier effects

Not a bad little mic preThe clarity from this mic-pre is not bad at all. The XMAX mic-pre's are pretty clean for this price range. One little negative I noticed is that when recording vocals, I use a Akg C214 mic, the Vu meter does respond well and I get a signal overload in pro tools 8. its not a big issue I sent it back for a new one, thinking this issue was due to a defect. When I received the replacement, the same thing. Simple work around but I am happy and I'm going to replace the stock tube with an Russian made tube and see what I get. Don't hesitate to buy this mic-pre if you need to upgrade your front end on a budget, it will help your mic as well if your using a not so expensive one.

Not Bad....But Not Worth ItThrough my expierience the mic pre was too hot and hot little to no head room. To get a good signal you have to turn up the gain enough to get the needle in the "Clear" but by doing so you increase the signal going to your AD Converter giving you distortion and unwanted noise. The workaround that i used was placing a -10dB to a -30dB pad on the ouput of the Presonus going to my AD Converter and it worked...sort of. if you are looking for something to get just to get better sound than just using an MBox or any other low end AD converter than by all means buy this pre cuz it will get the job done but if you take engineering seriously than change out the tube or buy a different Pre.
