I'm wondering about the merits of tracking with lots of available types of preamp's vs using a really large great sounding console? And how many people today still track with just one console? IOW would I be better off buying anouther type of preamp to complinent my focusrite ISA428? For a better soundstage and instrument seperation? If so does anybody Know what NEVE preamp the 428 sounds closest to, so that I don't buy something similar in sound, maybe the 1272? And then of cours any reccomendations for preamps, I would like something that is fairly neutral but has that nice exagerated presence and shimmer to it. What about the John Hardy j99 type of preamp? The Seventh Circle stuff has caught my eye. Thanks.
