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 have an M-Audio FireWire interface which is very mobile and an FMR RNC Mic Preamp. I use them to record classical acoustic concerts and recitals and I like both of them.
In the past I've made some fairly lukewarm comments about the FMR RNP ("really nice preamp") which I have owned since pretty early in my recording career. Well, I've poked around with it a lot recently and have a lot more respect for now.
I am currently looking at getting a Fmr audio Rnp (really nice preamp) and am wanting to know the best way to connect it upto my computer.
I currently am using a PreSonus digimax Lt and a Behringer ada8000 mic preamp running ADAT to my soundcard (RMEhammerfall).
If I have some modest mics (SM-57, SM58, AT-2020) feeding an RNP preamp, what would be a comparably cost-effective way to get the signal to the computer with decent fidelity?
I'm assuming this is set up is going to sound way better than PreSonus firepod I've been using. I was just wondering if anybody has any experience with any of these pieces of gear? I did a search, but I couldn't find anything really good. I know I'm going to have to learn how to use Pro Tools, but I've heard it's very user friendly.. so we'll see!
So one of the knobs on my FMR RNP is has gone into the aether. I've sent an email to FMR, but have yet to hear back. Probably have to call during the week. Does someone know of a good source for small quantities of electronic parts? I've tried searching but I'm probably using the wrong name for what I'm looking for. These are 1/2" diameter knobs with a set screw on the side.
Sorry If this is in another thread, but I didnt see it with a really quick search. I cant decide between the 2 units (FMR RNP/Presonous MP20). I just need 2 decent/good channels of preamps for location recording into my Alesis Masterlink. I cant afford all too much and these 2 units are in my price range for now. I will be using handbuilt cardiods and omnis going into the pres.
