Dude you will be shocked how much better your sound will be once you get a high end mic pre.

I also think the mic is the most important part of the equation, but a crappy pre won't do a nice mic justice. You can run a Ferrari on watered down low-octane fuel, but you can't expect good results, right?

get a good pre for your 4050, then when your bank account merits, get a high end mic.

I'd rather have an api 312 with a 4050 than a Mackie pre with a $5000 microphone.
