I'm looking into buying a preamp that works well for recording both a Godin Multiac (just using the direct sound) and a Taylor 714ce. But for different reasons.
For the Godin, I'm looking for new colors. I want to have options for some bite, beef, or low end, as I play aggressive & syncopated riffs. I don't want it to sound like flamenco.
For the Taylor, I'm wanting to get more out of my direct line (Fishman Matrix pickup) as I like to blend it with a mic to create a stereo mix on my tracks.
I have used portable recorders starting in the 80s (WM-D3) and continued in the 90s (TCD-D8), mostly for recording piano recitals. My microphones of choice were and are the OKM-2 binaural mics by the Berlin 'Soundman' company and they served me really well.
So here it is, let me know what you think !
I need preamp.

Looking for a Good set-up that all good studios should have.

I have kind of a weird situation here. Let me explain.
We are working with that guy who developed a great machine that uses lasers and such to read sound out of different supports.
The technology is great and everything but there is one thing I don’t understand.
I have a small studio setup mainly for recording vocals/acoustic guitar...
1. I have currently have a warm audio tone beast pre amp and have seen a phoenix drs mark 2 stereo pre amp selling for £1000 (half price as new model is coming out) ..I'm just wondering if theres much difference in quality between the two pre amps ?
You know I own a few Focusrite ISA preamps. I'm considering buying a few attenuators to allow me to drive the transformer a bit harder and try to pull out a bit more mojo.
I currently record tracks with a peak range between -18db to -10db (on the preamp and on the DAW).
So my question is ; is it worth it ? Do pushing the transformer a bit more allow a more colored sound ?
