Hey guys... I've been on the hunt for a preamp for about two months now, and have become quite lost in the whole world of things. I'm currently running with a Presonus FIREPOD, recording mostly acoustic guitar, percussion, upright bass (plucked and w/ bow), electric bass, and of course vocals. I currently only have three semi-quazi recording mics. (and then an endless supply of SHURE 57's & 58's). Two MXL 603S's, and a SHURE KSM27 are my decent guys. I usually use the two 603's to record my Taylor 714ce, and the 27 to do vocals. My price range is around $1000 (give or take) for the preamp. I want two channels on the preamp (or two one channel preamps), because when I record my acoustic, I record with two mics, to two tracks, I throw one to the LEFT and the other to the RIGHT, so it's not so swampy sounding. I was originally looking at two PRESONUS EUREKA's with the digital out card, but people keep giving mixed feelings. I have plug-ins out the wazzu for Cubase SX, so I'm not sure if i need all those fancy knobs PRESONUS gives you. Someone mentioned a TRIDENT s20, mainly because it's a simple 2 channel, and they felt it sounded slightly better. But know I'm hearing about the BRICK. So anyway, to keep this short, the more I look in to it, the more I get lost. Any suggestions? Opinions? 2 EUREKA's? 1 TRIDENT s20? 2 BRICK's? Any other preamps in the price range? Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
