Anyone here ever "roll their own" mic pre? I've come across several links on the web that seem great for this sort of thing...My interest was piqued when an electrical engineer buddy of mine cracked open a very hi end pre and said.."this design is really simple and the parts can't be more than 200$" I think I will take the plunge. I have nothing to lose but power to my house!
Check the Tech Talk forum. There is a ton of DIY mic pre stuff over there. Right now, we are doing the API . Still time to get an output transformer, 20 bucks or so.
