    I am running a digi 001 through my mackie mixer. My next step is to upgrade my preamps, because I don't have a lot to compare to, but we all know the reputation for mackie preamps.

    The kind of stuff i do mostly is rock (distortion guitar), but I need to do a range of things including acoustic guitar.

    What would be the best stereo preamp option for around $1000?

    Would the neve copy like the vintech dual 72 be the warmth i'm looking for? that's one preamp i see reccomended over and over, but I need it for basically all overdubs such as bass, guitars, and vocals, as well as 2 of the drum tracks, probably snare and bass drum.

    thanks

    I am keeping my eye on the Toft ATC-2 which is supposedly close at hand. It sounds like it might fit your bill as well.Street price just under the$1000 mark.
