I did make recordings of the snare and overheads but didn't compared them alone in the video.. I sure will do it in the next oned be very interested to hear it on snare, and especially the pair on overheads.
The UA 4-710 has 4 preamps but an eight channel converter onboard. So you get 4 line ins at the back that are suppose to be direct path to the converter.Those UA 710 units have converters right? And you're using it as a digital out device rather than analog? Just asking. Keeping up with your progress.

They are said to be of good quality but I will test the 1173 a different way nonetheless. I'll be dawm if they get their sub freq and presence back !!
Through mic pre, I'm sure it's not the case, but filtering or not flat response to the converters.. that could be.. I'm going to test and hope it's not the case..I do hope they aren't routing through a mic pre or some sort of filtering but direct out through the conversion
Add Inputs and Professional A/D Conversion
With eight analog inputs, the 4-710d is perfect for expanding your studio. Digitized via ultra high-quality 24-bit A/D converters at selectable sample rates up to 192 kHz, the 4-710d easily connects to most interfaces with its dual ADAT optical or AES/EBU DB-25 connectors.

What is first surprising is the missing sub frequencies. I'm using them via the line ins of the UA-4-710, but I'm going to test them with my Mitek AD96 tonight and check if the sound is different..
Like I said in the other thread, since I was able to calibrate them to be very near in behaviour and levels. I'm start to feel better about my purchase..
And our discussion is whether there is filtering in place before the conversion in his 710.
Cool that will be intersting. The 1073 had a LF shelf on the eq section, and i dont recall a boisterous low/sub from the calrec. To me Neve is about the mid range (but i am a bit wierd.)
That doesn't bother me so much but of course like you it would be a nice to have.Personally I wish it had a separate out for the comp but thats in a higher tax bracket for certain.
True, but at least they added the feature.. One think I discovered is if you put on the all in button, you get different results depending on the ratio you select.. This might compensate for the how many button you press kind of sound.you're still missing all the other combinations you can get with any 2 buttons or even 3. each button is additive.
an LA 3 is a solid state LA2a. opto comp. 1176 is an FET limiter ...... night and day / apples or oranges. personally an LA3 is all the comp i need. i love 'em. LA22a's are super cool too.I also have a Golden age Comp-3A and it is way more transparent than the 1173.
I know the difference Kurt, lol !! That's what I was saying the 1173 allows for many sounds and I also have in my toolbox a clean option if I need it. . .an LA 3 is a solid state LA2a. opto comp. 1176 is an FET limiter ...... night and day / apples or oranges. personally an LA3 is all the comp i need. i love 'em.

You know I chose the 1173 in great part because of your suggestions, right ?To me, the magic of the Neve preamps has always been the EQ. MOST English pieces are all about the EQ and how musical they are BEFORE their surgical use.
