Mike you and Jay can put away your violins!
I have been using these for about 4 years and have been very satisfied with their performance! (I just boost the output a little with a compressor so - no input distortion)
Groundcontrol - thanks for the tip on the out's, I will look into having the output stage revamped when I can get round to it...
Meanwhile they performed flawlessly on Toms this weekend.
The great tone of these pres and passive eq's is well worth the little investment and hassle to have them perform at their best in a wider range of situations.
hmmm...if these were up to par then maybe you'd use them on kick-snr-oh's-gtrs-vocals-bass-...just about anything you'd use a neve for...
I choose the Helios pre's over my Neve for most stuff.
and if I need to mic a tom, I'll grab for a neve!
are there any Helios consoles around your neck of the woods? If so I suggest you wander over there sometime with your neves and just check it out...who knows...your 4 Helios modules will probably blow away your 1073's if they were setup right.
