    I'm not exactally a newbie to recording, but I am fairly new to Music recording. In other words my ears aren't fully qualified. What I'm wondering is what are the differences between the Mic pre's on say, a Yamaha 01v/02R and an API (Neve, Manley, etc.)pre. What should I be listening for, and how do you compare the two (multi-track mixes, single tracks, etc etc)? Thanks in advance.

    The difference you'll hear depends on what preamps you use and compare. The best comparison is single tracks, however the differences are more apparent after cutting a whole song with good outboard preamps.
