Mic pres
« on: October 22, 2006, 02:35:17 am »

Hi, I am preparing for my first big project as a producer/engineer.  I am recording an album for a guy in Chicago who is super talented and has an amzing one of a kind voice.
I have been upgrading my studio components over the last few months so I can get him tracks that will end up sounding as good as a major label act (Godwilling) production wise.

I have so far a 3.2 Ghz 2GB RAM 250GB HD HT P4
A MOTU 1224 upgraded by Black Lion (pending)
A SmPro upgraded by Black Lion (pending)
a Shure KSM44, CAD E-100, SM57's and 58's
Valley international 400 mic channel
Valley People Dynamite compressor
2 Ted Fletcher Joe Meek MQ3's
Aphex 107 dual mic pre
Aphex Dominator II multi band limiter
ART Pro Channel

Now these items should handle the instruments okay.
I really want to capture his voice superbly but haven't much money to spend.
I'm looking at a few single channel preamps such as
the Groove Tubes Brick
the True Systems P-Solo
Grace 101
all around the $500 mark.  Do any of you have any experience with these preamps?
I'm probably going to use the KSM44 for vocals (ya never know though).
The vocalist has a natural high tenor.  Any suggestions or input on the aformentioned preamps?

Try Fletcher's forum.  Mr. Lavry's forum is more geared towards technical issues rather than gear preferences.

Thanks.  It doesn't matter anyway, I just scored a Rupert Neve Amek pure path channel in a box for $550!
Hahahahaha!
