Mackie Pre + M 160 Ribbon Mic?
Has anyone tried using Mackie pres with a Beyerdynamic M 160? Specifically: Onyx pres or the newer VLZ3 pres. Mainly I'm wondering if you find that you have enough gain available. I'd be micing a combo guitar amp (5 watt Laney,) and recording voiceover and lead vocals.
In the long term, I'd get myself something really nice for the 160. In the short term, the VLZ3 or Onyx are my only mic pre choices.
Thanks for any info.
