What do you guys think? I'm considering buying a nice tube pre (maybe that N72 thingie over at seventhcirclestudios.com) strictly to run my sounds through. My primary concern is vocals, but I think I'm gonna go the clean route (rnp style) and if it needs edge, then I'll either run it back out to my dirty pre or apply a virtual tube or two. But I wanna warm my boards up. I think I would go as far as sending my virtual instruments out and thru the pre and back in. My computer just sounds so sterile, and those tube/classic compressor/tape/spacely-sprocket emulator plugs help, but that's not quite it... Any recommendations on a pre? Anyone else use this technique? Have a jv1000 (mainly a controller), oasys pci, exs24, sampletank, stylus, b4, crystal, evp88.
