    Hi. I'm wondering what would be a nice complement to this mic, as I'm recording mainly a female soloist. Her voice is not very prone to sybillance, though she has a soft medium to high-pitched voice. I'm trying to achieve a smooth full sound, but not an unnatural one.
    I'm wondering if a Sebatron 1000 would be a good choice, or perhaps a Great River ME-1NV. I've "kindova" discarded the Grace 101 for this application, beeing it so neutral.
    I really wouldn't want to change the mic, I've just aquired it, as it came across 2nd hand at a ridiculous price.
    None of you will point me in the direction of the RNP, will you? I've just let one go on e-bay for 300 dollars...

    Opinions very welcome, and thank you!

    the sebatron preamp should match up well with the AT4040 as would the great river. if you can afford a two channel sebatron you could feed one output into the other input to get a wider color range,.
