your paraphrasing is definitely slanted to make your own point. Here is my actual complete quote:Originally Posted by bewarethanatos
"the brick is a nice alternative and its cheaper and also gives you a quality pre"
it was definitely NOT the scenario, contrary to what you suggest.
The point was that in the brick you get a mic pre as well and its a nice alternative for the money- definitely not a 'buy a brick instead thing"
But of course Joe H was definitely right when he said:
"Both are great boxes. Take chance! I'll bet you you'll get the same results out for your recordings with either of those, or a Mackie Onyx pre. Yeah, that's right: An ONYX pre.
But hey, it's your $$$, spend it any way you like. "
