The time now is As a home studio owner, I’m never going to be able to afford a truly great mic pre. Your spot on with what I’ve found with it. The input impedance is close to 10k, that is what I attribute the “enhanced” hi-end. I was looking for a 2 channel pre and figured the EQ would be a bonus and the digital outs a big plus. I like scooping the 2 bands of sweepable mids on vocals and kick drums.

The VTP-1 is a little dated, being limited to bits and I always liked the way they looked, so I gave it a try. Does a real good job warming things up. Enter your search terms Submit search form.


Find one used for a lot cheaper. I haven’t used the EQ section, but overall it’s a nice color to have around, even though it is not a tube pre, just has a “high-voltage tube gain stage”. Bill Ruys, May 1, I got one of these as a trade for some rackmount labor. I mean I tried it on my acoustic, elcectric amp, keys direct and my voice and it just toatally underwhelmed in every way.

The EQ is not very musical at all and kind of harsh. Dave Runton, May 1, You have to manually dial down the low end for a roll off. Just make sure the digital section is vfp-1.

The pre just lacks any kind of real character You can always sell and upgrade at a later point, or keep it around for another color.

This is not transparant prampli, the intrt not her, there is a color, it is clear, just a lamp! Clip meter is helpful to reproduce OD on things like snare and certain vocal sounds to imitate that vintage edge. Results 1 to 3 of 3.

I’ve never heard a phase switch make this kind of drastic difference. It is quite rare and little known elsewhere. Did you find this review helpful? I would almost take the pre’s in my old Berri Maybe it was designed that way but then Write a user review Ask for a user review.

Line level inpust are not good for instrument applications such as non-active bass and guitar. Since most tube coloration is really the transformers, and it has no transformers – it doesn’t sound like a tube pre. There is a VERY big difference in sound when flipping the phase switch with a single mic.

It was all most as if the phase switch was the bass roll off switch in reverse or something. The rglage are very easy, hop triturated gain and trim to add the color that you Digktech, we look at the meters on the level, yammer a red LED to indicate of possibly clip, a little kick eq and hop we are left with the sound appropriate.

So back it went today and instead I used it to get that monitor upgrade I’ve been vrp-1 off. Our members also liked: Small flat converters are 18 bit only. I have one of those pres also Mike Rivers, May 1, I wasnt very attached to the sound of the Penta pre and did not find the compressor all that usefull. It is based on the SSM preamp chip which as others would say is ok, but not as good as the which is in the Symmetrix SX mic pre.

They, in contrast to the pre, sound very very good. Bill, I tend to agree with Mike’s response.
