My GAS makes me suffer these days and I contemplate the idea to sell one of my 2 UA LA-610 and replace it with something else.
I'm tempted by the WA273-EQ but I'm wondering if it will be better than the ISAs or not.
I have 8 ISA preamps and they are my favorites..
I could buy a used ISA 428 (4 preamps) for about the same price of a WA273-EQ (2 preamps).
I'm debating picking up a Focusrite ISA 220 for $550. The only pre I currently have outside my PreSonus 16.4.2 is a GAP Pre73. There doesn't seem to be much out there regarding this pre, only some bad feedback regarding the converters. That doesn't bother me as I likely wouldn't use them, and I'm thinking this might be a good deal on an ISA based strip. Any thoughts? Has anybody used them?
Got time to make a few tests with my brand new ISA Two.
I adjusted my Delta 44 à +4db and tried to calibrate the output of the ISA to match the signal input in my computer without any luck. It seems the signal of the ISA is too for +4db to be equal unless I adjust the audio interface further. At +4db, for a signal of -9db on my DAW, the ISA shows -18db or less... (with the led calibration at maximum on the ISA)
- if I run a hotter signal through the ISA and lower the converter input will the sound quality change ?
looking for some opinions on the character "character" comparison between the D.A.V. Broadhurst Gardens No.2, Shinybox Si4, and Sytek MPX-4?
What one do you recommend? Will be used mainly for "rock" in conjunction with Daking pre's.
Besides the Focusrite ISA pre's, they are all transformerless designs, but yet every pre still has different sonic "character" even when aimed at being transparent.
I'm just trying to find the most musical pre out of this bunch.
I just. need to know!
I am curious if anyone has the opportunity to use the Focusrite ISA828 and the A-D card for the unit? Opinions? Facts? Thought? Thanks for your posts!
