    hi sebatron. i'm very pleased with my vmp-2000e.
    out of all my preamps that includes an API and neve copy i turn to the seb as my goto preamp first.i sometimes wonder if i should have got 4000e for the extra channels.it certainly has made my recordings another level.
    do you recommend any particular mics for acoustic guitar ?
    can you recommend a suitable compressor to match/?
    what else have you got up you sleeve.?

    I like the U87ai with the VMP .... I have used the Manley EL OP with great success but I look forward to trying a Sebatron compressor as well ....

    I hate to be off the subject, but I was just wondering what ai means in reference to Neumannn mics?

    I've been looking at thier products and couldn't figure out what that meant.

    Not sure what it means exactly but U87ai's were manufactured begining in the 90's earlier models were designated U87 ... so it designates the latest version as of this writing ...

    It means Artificial Intelligence, the mic knows where to point all by itself. but be careful because your mic may run away to look for the blue fairy.
