WONDERFUL AND GREAT PRICE GET IT!
Okay sometimes you get crazy sometimes you drink too much beer sometimes you are just a gear junkie. Well in this case I bought this for NO REASON. Just to have it. Well kids let me tell you, I use an ALESIS DM10 Drum Set and connect it with 1/4 in. cables into the preamp. First let me say I used to use my 2 Ch. Joe Meek CS w/ EQ, COMP. APHEX BLEW IT AWAY! I Got euphonic from the sound. So its serendipity for me and this really good priced pre can be used for ANYTHING. I am a preamp addict literally I've tried em all (most of em) this should be up there with A Designs, Daking, Etc. Listen save money your ears cannot tell that much of a difference. At any rate BUT THIS PREAMP it is so wonderful plus it has of course Digital Output (S/PDIF) and word clock setttings (moot point for me I use apogee stuff for that). I mean if you have the money talk to the guys at sweetwater they are awesome and get a good API or Vintech, et. al. But for 2 channels and (DI x2) this is great. And a warning I would suggest going to sweetwater for expensive stuff there are other sites that I won't mention where used gear us sold. Get it new get it with technical support. All I know is sweetwater will be my company of choice for the rest of my life and when I'm bored I peruse the site learn so much. I usually don't like big business but people like Sage will help you out to find what you need and I am sure its because this is all of our passions here. I may have to move to Ft. Wayne after I get my degree :) But I do have one complaint - sweetwater you have me hooked on the laffy taffy I DEMAND MORE OF IT IN MY ORDERS banana flavor esp.! And none of those atomic balls that burn your mouth. :)
love you guys,
