for M 149 mic > Brent Averill 1073 OR Great River MEQ-1NV pre/eq?!
it's obvious that the microphone I have is very clean and neutral. But, I need a richer and more coloured sound for the voices I record (mostly my voice...)
I love that Robbie Williams and James Blunt, or George Michael sound... I record POP music.
The entire configuration will be:
- M 149
- Breant Averill 1073 (1084) OR Great River MEQ-1NV OR Portico 5032
- Crane Song Trakker
- Aurora 16 with AES 16
- Folcrom passive analog summing with 2 good pres to raise its gain with 30 db
- for Folcrom I've thought at the beginning to API 512c, but the sound of Portico 5012 seemed to me more round, musical, fat, open and very shyny at the same time (I'VE LISTENED TO THAT ON THELISTENINGSESSIONS.COM -no direct approuch...). The API seemed to me more rough, mid freq too loud and not so subtle...Just my oppinion.
- RMS 755 Super Stereo Comp (is a very noticeable difference between this 755 and it's richer brothers Alan Smart C2 or SSL G series?!)
So, for this intentions of mine, WHAT PRE/EQ will fitt better?
I must make the purchase very soon, almost blindly...(without the internet site thelisteningsessions.com it would've been really blind at all...)
Had a GR NV and have a API. Both are different. A API is a good choice. Maybe pad the outs of the API as well so you can drive it. I normally run it through a Neve 2254 for color as well if I want color.
