    Great clean pres to expand your interface

    Posted by David Finkelstein on Apr 5th 2011

    I got this to expand my M Audio Profire 2626 to have 16 mic inputs. The pres are amazingly clean and uncolored. They are great for drums they let the room in without coloring it and help the drums glue together in the mix.
