noisy pre amps on mini-me?

    Hello everyone. This is my first post, but I've learned so much from you people over the last few weeks, so thanks!

    I've seen a couple of posts elsewhere about the Apogee Mini-Me where users complained that their pre-amps are a little on the noisey side. Would users here agree that this is the case?

    From my own experience, I know it's possible (when not using something properly) to get the wrong impression, so I'd like to clear this up before I buy one.


    Many thanks,
    John Stafford

    Never had a noise problem with mine. Can't give you a measurement on it, though...

    Oh, and welcome to the board. :cool:

    Hi John,
    Thanks for your reply!

    Glad to hear that you have had no noise problems with your mini-me. I haven't come across any other references to noise in the Mini-Me other than the posts I mentioned from the other forum.

    All I have to do now is save up the money!

    Cheers!

    Hi John--

    I've got the Mini-Me, and the preamps have a clean yet punchy sound. I wouldn't call them noisy.

    The only application that might pass as noisy is with the Soft Limit Compressor on the 3rd curve. Which is a brick wall limiter that brings out background noise the same way any hard limiter does.

    first and second curves are more of a safety net to avoid digital overide.

    I own a Mini-Me and I'm very happy with it. Good luck,

    Rodrigo
