Sounds like a great pre-amp, lots of tunable features, but a heavy price tag. You can find a lot of the same features on many less expensive preamps and most likely achieve similar recording results. Take a look at the specs on the 6-channel Alesis
which I purchased about a year ago. Lots of great features, built in effects, full stereo, and a great price.
Good luck and post some great music when you get that studio finished.
PSR-S950, TC Helicon Harmony-M, Digitech VR, Samson Q7, Sennheiser E855, Custom Console, and lots of other silly stuff!
