    Hi All,

    Apple iMac (Leopard) Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz
    Apogee Duet
    Cubase 4.0
    Sibelius 5.0
    Kontakt 2.0
    Guitar Rig 2.0
    KRK V6 Series 2

    I have just purchased an Apogee Duet.

    The converters will blow your mind for the price of the unit but the preamps are a little weak.

    Can anyone tell me at what price/make of preamp I would notice an improvement over the Apogee preamps?

    I prefer a good clear clean sound not too warm.

    My budget would be around $1000.00 and I would prefer to buy new.

    Thank you for your help.

    Kindest regards,

    Not sure why you would say the microphone preamps sound weak? They're not too weak for Bob Clearmountain. They probably sound like SSL preamps? That's probably why you think they sound weak? You want good clean sound? You've got it. Maybe what you want is that old-fashioned colored classic sound from API or Neve? Because you're asking for what that unit already delivers. Maybe it's your microphone selection, placement? You haven't tried to overprocess stuff have you? Let me know if you can make a good recording with that Apogee?

    Always curious
