Three microphone preamps tested. (One of them is pretty bad!)

It's often thought that the selection of microphone preamplifier is crucial to getting a good recording. So here are three common preamps tested, WITH AUDIO!

'Preamp anxiety'. So many people suffer from this that it is on the point of being listed as a medical condition. Do you have the right preamp, or is someone else having all the hit records because their preamp is better?

The debate could be endless, but a little audio might help shed some light. Here are four short audio clips (WAV format) of three preamps (there are two recordings of one of the preamps, with different settings) used on female speech. The microphone is a CAD GXL3000.

I'm not going to say anything at all about the sound quality of these clips, for now. I want to know what YOU hear. (You should download the files and listen on your studio monitors, not your computer speakers.)

Listen… enjoy… comment!
