Just wanted to throw a quick question out to you veterans. I recently purchased Daking pre mic one, and i was just curious to see if there were any specific mics that run well with that pre amp. My ideal price range would be somewhere sub 400, but if its well worth the money in relation to the upgrade in quality, i would be willing to spend more. What do you guys think? Thank you.
Should I get another Daking Mic Pre IV or a Universal Audio 2-610, or is there something better?
Ive been debating amongst a few mic pres and narrowed it down to 2.
Daking MicPre w/ EQ and UA LA-610
I have experience with the LA using a Neumann tlm 103 and soundelux 195 in another studio (20 songs worth exp). However NO experience with the Daking, but by reviews it seems very good.
I currently use a Avalon vt737sp and for mics I have Mojave MA 200, AKG c3000b and Sterling ST77...
Use will be primarily male vocals, pop, hip hop and rnb and occasional female rnb.
I'm looking for a pre that's not quite as dark as the Great River with a little more high end. Something that will give a nice presence to my vocals that has a vibe and is not too sterile/clean.
Which would compliment my Great River ME-1NV...Pacifica or Daking Pre/EQ...or something else?
My mics are Soundelux 251c and SM7. My vox is male rock/pop.
I'm looking for to upgrade my recording chain. I am currently using an M-Audio Tampa as my main preamp.
I have read good things about the Chameleon Labs 7602, Focusrite ISA One and Daking Mic Pre One and they seem to offer excellent performance and value.
I've been offered a secondhand Chameleon Labs 7602 for a good price which means I could keep my Tampa and buy the 7602 giving me two flexible channels.
Alternatively I could sell my Tampa and buy the Focusrite ISA One or Daking Mic Pre One?
