Indeed I did. I have a client who shows up once every year and just bangs out as many standards and blues numbers as he can in four hours. I put the MDP-1a in the booth with him, plugged the output of his keyboard into the DI outputs and fed line level into the control room. Definitely added some depth and "realism" to his keyboard. it was well noted by both myself and the client vs our previous recording sessions (where, god forbid, I had used my Neve pres on his keyboard).
I also have a 4 pack of vintage API pres. I love them as well but they are more "in your face" where as the Pendulum is more three dimensional. I still prefer the API's (or, even better, my Chandlers) on guitar amps but I'm loving the Pendulum for vocals, acoustic guitars and anything that needs a DI. I have yet to run a full mix through it's line inputs but don't worry, it's on the list of things to do someday.
