    the 737 is the most popular hip hop flavour of the month preamp, and it sounds alright, a lot of people seem to like the sound of it....if you can get one a at a decent price, i'd pick it up

    Hear you go iLL, you know the 737SP is good because I've talked to you about it. Knowing that I'm going to try to get my heads on one somewhere down the line. If I don't get that it'll be the Liquid Channel. I'm trying to get some nice quality but with the 737SP it all depends on your mic and you seem to have some good ones. I know with the AT4050, you'll get a clean and clear sound. Which is what I'm looking for...

    yeah it would

    a neumann would sound great too

    he's already got a solid setup that will give you nice quality

    cuz i talked to him on aim, he doesn't even have the cash to drop on it.

    ksm44, emu1820m, and wharfedales is more than enough to get good quality.

    and he can even better quality out of what he ALREADY has if he improves his mixing ability.

    I think he is seriously going to get it because I talk to him on AIM also. He can just save the money but use what he has right now then get the 737SP later.

    some of the people on this board sicken me how they talk like they know it all.... Since when are the preamps on the 1820M good enough? Good enough for what? To tell someone "don't bother with the industry standard preamp, keep using the shit that came on ur soundcard" is fuckin asinine.
