Lives for gear

Just bring it back. There's no point in fighting to try and hear a difference - maybe the Apollo preamp is just as good and there is no substantial difference. It makes no sense to spend a bunch of money on treatment and new mics to accommodate a piece of gear you could just return.

It reminds me of when I had my Saffire 56 - I spent hours upon hours recording and testing all the preamp emulations only to realize the stock preamp was better than all of them and it was basically a waste of time using the liquid preamps. I know that's not the same as a hardware preamp that costs nearly $1000, but the lesson is trust your ears.
