A Word From Rudament
People often ask me what the most important thing in my studio is. Although there are many necessary components to a well functioning recording studio, a decent preamp is absolutely essential. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this piece of equipment, the pre-amp is what one runs a microphone through before its signal reaches the monitors. If you're looking for a great pre-amp for a decent price, I recommend the Focusrite Platinum TrakMaster. I started using this preamp years ago and I continue to use it to this day.
