i have a Manley gold mic.
and i would like to know whats the best pre amp for that mic.
i wanna a transparente, clear, open and super big sound.
i have the 3D Pre CD Volume 1, Preamps in Paradise-Preamp Summit DVD-ROM, 3D Mic CD and ADCD Converter CD . :)
i kown there are GORDON, BUZZ AUDIO, GML... but in CD i prefer the Millennia or the focusrite.
but i dont know what to buy. is RED 7 better than 430 ?
is Millennia more open and big than Focusrite ?
thanks a lot
I record primarily acoustic material--guitar, violin, mandolin, National steel guitar--but also electric bass and guitar and lap steel, and I use a Fantom X8 for sequencing.
i have a Avalon VT-737SP, and i wanna other warm pre sound.
i think the atack of 6176 (20ms) is a little slow for vocals ?
(i wanna other pre to record vocals)
what you think ?
I’ve finally got my business running quite nice and euros are coming in… it’s time to spend it all before my girlfriend wastes it on shoes! ;)
I have a small studio where I do mostly commercials and tv-themes. Since I also want to do some rock stuff that I can’t record in my “closet”, I’ve decided to build a mobile recording rack.
So far I have a laptop, rme fireface, and following mic pre’s:
Millennia Origin (thanks Kurt for recommending this, its just what I needed!)
I got my Origin couple of days ago and I do love it! I'm just wondering if I did the best possible choice here...
I record mostly vocals & spoken voice, but also acoustic guitars, bass, percussion...
Kurt I know you have used both, what do you think?
Considering a decent recording channel that will do OK as jack of all trades.
Liquid channel or Millennia Origin? I've seen a lot written on these pages about the origin, but surprisingly little about the liquid channel. Any experience out there?
I am ready to commit up to $3000-$3500 to get a channel strip/combo that will really excel in getting the big, warm, present and defined vocal recording sound.
Would love to be able to get away with the tried and true Avalon VT737 . . . but wonder if the extra cost is worth going further up for the Millennia, PEndulum and Manley [and opinions between them] - How big a bang in further getting that big, warm, present, and defined pro vocal sound do the others deliver over the AValon and each other?
The unit will be a front end for a male vocal that can get rather high and shrill and tends to be somewhat chaotic/versatile (that is the reason for the DPR).
