$1000 upgrade? Single-Channel Preamps

$1000 upgrade?

I have $1000 to spend. Should I get a pre or a new interface? Currently using mbox2. Could ditch protools anytime. Recommendations?

if you explain what you are trying to accomplish, it may be easier to help. are you going to be doing full bands, or is the amount of I/O on the mbox enough? what style of music are you going to be doing? how is your room/monitoring?

what pre do you currently have? unless it's badass, that's where you need to put your money.

just using the pre's on the mbox2. I make demo songs for a company in japan. r&b pop type music. Need strong clear vocals on the demo's.

I'd consider a Chameleon Labs 7602. With a power supply they run about $800. Currently it's my only pre and it's pretty useful. You definitely want to upgrade from the M-Box pres.

I would look into the Audient Mico. That would get you 2 channels of pres and better A/d. I haven't used it personally or been able to find much info on it, but Audient is generally good. It is the only thing I can think of that is similar to the Apogee Mini Me, which is now discontinued.
