    Hi i am a newbie to this site and i am getting my first setup
    i am looking at the great river mp2 and mp2nv as my mic pre/di for my setup.

    the main genres i will be using it for are R&B,Dance-uk garage,Hip-hop, some rock , but you can get a idea of the sound of these vocals. this is what i want to record which would be better .
    what are the main differences with the two, apart from the vintage sound, will the mp2nv still do everything the mp2 can or is it a totally different sound.

    any one got one or both?

    thanks in advance

    Two very different sounding units that compliment each other well. In the most general sense, the NV would be considered colored in tone and the MP would be consider non-colored.

    the mp2 is more like a millennia than the mp2nv which is more like a cross between a really good neve and an api
