I looking for some input and suggestions. I am up grading my studio and plan to purchase an Apollo X8P. I also want to add an additional 8 XLR inputs. I am considering the Audient ASP800 to meet this need. Will this work or are there better options I should consider?
Ok, I know it's again another preamp post ! lol
So I'll make it short.
I already have 2 LA-610, 4-710, 4x ISA and a RME Fireface 800
I need at least 4 more preamp, to allow me to track a full band and this is not happening very often.
I already have 10 somewhat colored preamps and since I changed my Saffire 56 for a RME ff800
I'm missing a few preamps to drive a complete band.
There isn't many choices around 1 k. I'm planning the buy at the end of summer.
I had a Octopre and was disapoined by it.. it's a bit narrow sounding and doesn't have enough gain and headroom for my taste.
I'm currently using an ART MPA Gold, M-Audio Tampa and DMP3 as my pres.
I mainly record vocals and occasionally guitar and bass.
I've read that upgrading the tubes in the ART MPA Gold makes a big difference to it's performance so I'm torn between upgrading these or selling all my pres and get the Audient Mico?
I would like to know from you, opinions about (good) affordable 8ch preamps racks...
Between (Digidesign) PRE and the Audient (from Trident), what is your favorite?
Do you know another model that sounds better for the this price?
Thank you very much !
