You have to buy one of the following mic pres or the world will explode. (Decoded meaning you have some spare cash and the voices are telling you must ABSOLUTELY MUST blow it on a new pre.) Your current options are: 2 channels of Vintech 1272 1 of X73 Buzz Audio 2 used Amek 9098's. You could also sell some blood and buy a DW Fearn VT1. Yes, my precious.. Since you got some API pres & EQ, nothing else gets used in your rack after the drums are down...What do you do ??????
