    I am trying to make a decision on a preamp and I am thinking of buying an Focusrite Octopre. I am currently using a behringer ub1622 board for my pres. How much and what kind of differnce will I notice by moving up to that octopre? Or if there is something better in that price range?
    Thanks Jake :)

    I haven't used the Octopre, but I have used the Digimax LT and I've been very please with it.

    For the price, you are getting some great preamps and great A/D conversion. I record drums with the onboard pres a lot, and they really hold their own against my high-end stuff.

    You will find that there is a HUGE difference in the sound quality of the digimax compared to that of the Behringer...I guarantee it!

    I've had an Octopre since shortly after they came out...and its been a rock solid decent or better sounding pre for most applications...sometimes it takes a lot of tweaking/mic selections, but I almost always get what I'm looking for...

    This is one piece of gear I really don't regret buying...and even though we've picked up some high end stuff lately, the Octopre still seems to find itself on 3-8 tracks of any given project...

    I've had my Octo Pre LE since they we're realeased and I've been extremely happy with it.

    I know its not the best pre amps money can buy but there do the job fine. I use them mostly for drums or live recording. Its never let me down.
