Alright, I currently have among other things, an Alesis Studio 32 and A Eureka pre with B/B's. The Alesis is perfect, except I'm not happy with the pre's. But for routing, ins/out etc. perfect. The Eureka sounds good to me, especially as a DI. Although I can't get the level high enough (0db instead of +4 - or something) should've listened to others but didn't - kurt - damn I hate admitting that . Either way the Eurekas going back. $430. I need something decent to replace it. I'd rather not spend more cash, maybe $200 more. So, thats $630. What is a decent gen. purpose dual pre for that $$. It would also have to be for Bass DI, Drum, Vox. I heard the RNP doesn't like bass much. I've looked at the lower Focusrite Trak models, and don't like - too many bells and whistles that take away. I'd really like to bus groups out of my MOTU into a descent board, sum and return for final mix. If I sell the Alesis, I'll get $350-400. Would putting the $1000 into a board like a Soundcraft M12 or A&H Mix Wizard be prudent. That would give me the Pre's, Line Ins, and the ability to mix OTB. I don't have any Idea how the pre's in those boards sound, and nowhere to hear them before I buy. I can't find anywhere in Minneapolis that has them to try out. I can buy, and return the A&H MW3 16:2 at Guitar C. But, I'd have to special order the soundcraft. And no return. I've heard that the pres/EQ are better than mackie, what about what the Eureka sounds like, or an RNP, or the Focusrite platinums? Any Ideas? In this year I will be upgrading to higher end pre's, Trident - Focusrite ISA - I don't know - something in the $1000 range. But, for now (6 mths) I need something better than what I have.
