svt audio 1272 with Folcrom summing

HI I have a Rolls Folcrom summing, I love I think it's brilliant.
I use it with a pair of BAE 312A and sometimes with a pair of undertone MPEQ-1.
I wish one day I will own a pair of Quad Eights Pre and EQ, but It's not in my reach for now...

Well I am looking for a pair of SVT audio 1272 to use that Neve colour on the way back. I never tried them, I do love 1073's a lot. But never used it on my 2bus.

If anybody has an opinion about it let me know!

If you don't need extra gain, it can be nice.

the SVT has 50 DB of gain, I feel like it would be enough for summing usage.

It also looks like it a very recommend preamp, I just did not have the luck to try it.

I had been using an AEA TRP preamp with my Folcrom for a year but added a Neve Portico 5012 to have a different option, for recording besides for the Folcrom. It sounds amazing! If you're looking for a Neve choice for the mix bus, it's definitely worth considering. It has a sound, very big and 'enhanced' but not as obviously colored as the 5043 compressor, which I had and sold. Your taste may be different, but I tried a transformerless pre into the Neve compressor, and switched to a Neve pre into an SSL style compressor, and the latter suits me better. If the pre was too colored, like the 5043, I probably wouldn't be as into it, but the 5012 definitely gives you a little extra magic and size.
