Good Mic Preamp under 250$ ?


#1

Hi Guys, Anyone can share his thoughts about this?
Is there any good cheap mic preamp, which is better than nothing?
Hehe
Maybe not under 250$ if its not worth it, but something in low price range!

Thanks!

Hi mate!

I recomend this, http://www.fmraudio.com/rnp.html

I think it’s very good low-cost alternative, but at that level, a good interface can do wonderful things with their pre onboard such as Steinberg MR816, or UR 824, its pres really are great

I have this one:

sure it´s not the best but in it´s price it works really good.

The new Steinger UR, comes with yamaha pre´s , really good for a low cost

Studio Projects VTB-1 is good, as is the earlier Joe Meek VC3Q. Both well below $250.

check out some of the warm audio units, good quality for an affordable price! $250 is a bit low though, you wanna be spending more around the $350 + mark…

Really happy with the VTB-1 (pre) + B1 (mic) combo, both by Studio Projects - used them on all vocal & whistle tracks here: http://audiojungle.net/item/clap-your-hands-whistle-and-sing/3075582
