    I am a keen amateur and i am looking to purchase a bit of new equipment. At a push I can stretch to £500/$1000 (but if possible would prefer to spend less !)

    I am looking to purchase a preamp/channel strip that will add something to my recordings.
    I am recording mainly acoustic Guitar, Vocals, Piano and I am looking for something to give me a bit of colour, character, warmth and a vintage feel if possible.

    I am currently working with a bland studiomaster desk and recording into Cubase 4

    The mic's I will mainly be using are AKG C414, Neumann M149, Neumann M147. I also have a TL Audio 5021 compressor

    Does anyone have any advice on what I should go for ?
    universal Audio solo 610 ?
    SPL 'Gold Mike' Dual-Channel Tube Preamp ?
    Anything else ?

    Thanks in advance.
  2. As far as I can tell, It seems like the Joe Meek might be your best bet. I have never used one of these units, but having the option to use the built in A/D converters sounds enticing..........

    A single channel sebatron is another option.
