I really wanted to use the pre on a session I had that afternoon. So first thing, rearrange the gear rack.
First we make the hole.
Cables were already soldered up at home, minutes later the whole thing is in.
I tried it on a vocal that afternoon, it sounds really full and Neve like, which makes a nice addition to the other pre's we have. One nice feature is you can bypass all the eq in one go, another is that you can drive the pre hard and if the output is too hot you can trim it back using the fader knob. Very cool.
