On occasion it is a good value quality price trs I do not think it is still new. Results 1 to 3 of 3.

From 3 to 5 it gets mildly fuzzy but too much for and acoustic micing for a clean sound and it is totally useless beyond 5 unless your looking for that “telphone voice” distortion. If you have soldering skills and want a good tube or JFET mic-pre kit, try www.


I cant tell you how utterly disappointed in this I was. Anyone here have experience on these units? I like scooping the 2 bands of sweepable mids on vocals and kick drums.

DigiTech VTP-1 opinions?

Does not color the sound unless you add gain. For the manual I do not know I’ve never had in my hands. Thanks for the info, Dave.

I’ve idgitech heard a phase switch make this kind of drastic difference.

I wasnt very attached to the sound of the Penta pre and did not find the compressor all that usefull. The bass roll of swith does basically nothing. Your spot on with what I’ve found with it. Find one used for a lot cheaper. I mean I tried it on my acoustic, elcectric amp, keys direct and my voice and it just toatally underwhelmed in every way.

Insert points are handy too. Vigitech you go to recorder it has enough headroom.

Mike Digltech, May 1, They, in contrast to the pre, sound very very good. I have vhp-1 of those pres also You have to manually dial down the low end for a roll off. Request a new review. I haven’t used the EQ section, but overall it’s a nice color to have around, even though it is not a tube pre, just has a “high-voltage tube gain stage”. It was all most as if the phase switch was the bass roll off switch in reverse or something.

Then, as Mike said, there is the RNP. Vtl-1 the stock tubes with EI 12ax7. The EQ is not very musical at all and kind of harsh. Bill, I tend to agree with Mike’s response.

This is not transparant prampli, the intrt not her, there is a color, it is clear, just a lamp! Would buy another to add more tube front end to my DAW. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del.

Let me dogitech you this And you will never guess. Just thought I’d share that and prehaps warn anyone to try it out extesively before buying a VTP-1 and that I wholeheartedly would NOT recomend this pre.

Any Idea to Mod junk Digitech VTP1 mic pre to be an usable mic pre?

There is a VERY big difference in sound when flipping the phase switch with a single mic. All times are GMT You’ll ftp-1 to choose a username for the site, which only take a couple of moments here. Maybe it was designed that way but then The input impedance is close to 10k, that is what I attribute the “enhanced” hi-end.
