Focusrite Red 8 Review

By sonicfunk

from Berlin

This is by far the best amp to mike accoustic guitars with i have ever seen. So tight and cool in the bass, yet so musical and open in the highs. Makes any track come to the front of the music if you are good at micing. This is the total package. You can't doctor around on the sound much on the way in, but for anyone with great cables and converters looking for an allround beast to throw the occasional snare or violin track at, record the guitars and get a little punch in your great sounding liveless singer, this is the go to route. I don't like the red of the red that much, but that's hardly anything one could argue over. For the price the unit is heads and shoulders above most competitors. I am not a huge fan of the Liquid Channel or Isa, but this blows anything out the water in it's class. The red series defines what pro gear should be like. Easy to control and gets you fast great results you don't have to doctor around with. It's apllicable to so many things, but the best thing is it never sounds bad on anything and i have never said this before about any preamp i ever used.
