Looking to upgrade over the Digi 002R pre's. Budget $1,500. I primarily record electric guitar, bass, vocals. My only condenser mic is an AT3035 which is decent but nothing fancy. The unit i decide to get must have a good instrument pre in it. After research these are the pres i found suitable. If anyone has any experience with these, please let me know what you think: 1.) UA LA-610 2.) Avalon M5 3.) Groove Tubes Supre (new unit, so i don't think many have heard this unit). 4.) Vintech X73i or Vintech 1272 I put the La-610 on top of the list, because i've heard the 2-610 on a bass track and a female vocal and it rocked, also it has all the features i want, plus a compressor which from what i've read is really good. On the other hand with my budget do you think that getting a more expensive single mic pre/DI and then an FMR RNLA to partner with would be a better choice? any ideas, recommendations and personal experiences are most welcome.
