Hello, This is my first post here. Really enjoy what I've seen and read so far. Any one have any experience with this box. I've tried it out with my oo1 and apogee rosetta and it seems to work wonderfully on bass tracks but haven't had the chance to track vocals or other instruments. :w:

I haven't used that piece but do have one of their Classic Series pres. If your talking about using the instrument input for taking bass direct, it can get a nice sound. This is all I use mine for these days, an active tube DI box. The mic pre is an IC design that does the majority of the gain and then runs through a 12AX7 toob for marketing purposes. The pre chips aren't much better than any mid-line consoles, so I avoid using the mic input. The instrument input avoids this front end gain and feeds the toob stage directly, which actually does have a nice clean tone to it. Can't really recommend it as anything other than a DI, though the pre is better for low end stuff than say a Mackie or ART. HTH

I think the INDIGO was the solid state serie of
TLA equipm.
They stopped production of INDIGO's preamps-eq's etc. after one year or so.
Can't remember more.

Nope, actually.. the "Indigo" series was TLA's first attempt at making some cheaper versions of their "Classic" (grey/black) series, the technology of which later went into the cheaper and current "Ivory" series as the indigo stuff was too expensive to produce for its price point.

The "Crimson" series was the solid state version of the Indigo series. And that's it !

Is it any good ? Well, yes, some of it is considering its cost. If buying say an EQ is an upgrade from what you've got, buy it 2nd hand and you're laughing !
