Kind of depends on what you are doing!
Ha yep. A bit of both really.
I mean, I'm recording full band stuff this weekend both for my friends band and then some drums for my own band afterwards and so am borrowing an LA610 and another lunchbox with 4 512s to take up the slack!.
But then the majority of the time is mono overdubs!
I guess realistically another pre would be best first.
