This POS has precious little head room. If you go to recorder it has enough headroom. I put 8 for converters I haven’t used the EQ section, but overall it’s a nice color to have around, even though it is not a tube pre, just has a “high-voltage tube vtp-11 stage”.

I like scooping the 2 bands of sweepable mids on vocals and kick drums. On to sucktion 2.

I always liked the way they looked, so I gave it a try. They require solder skills and time divitech build, but you end up with a very nice mic-pre when it’s all done. You can always use it as a stepping stone. I was looking for a 2 channel pre and figured the EQ would be a bonus and the digital outs a big plus.

They, in contrast to the pre, sound very very good.
