FLEA 47 + PACIFICA, good idea ?
      #995470 - 30/06/12 02:05 AM
I have some moniez to spend and would like to treat myself.
I was thinking of the pacifica (currently have gap pre 73)
and a flea 47 (currently have c414-xls,evre20,sm57,at2020)
NOW, I dont really know about A/D convertors and wondered
if someone could give me a shout about them seeing as i allways
get good responses on this forum from you folks. I would guess
that the a/d convertor is built into my RME babyface as i have
been using my current pre and mics ? do i need to get a super
duper one? I mean i dont mind im just wondering.

any comments are welcome


pink floyd, radiohead, synths and acoustics, soulfull minor key wails, oh yes.

The converters in the rme are pretty good and certainly not likely to be the week link in the chain at this level. The Pacifica is a preamplifier with a lot of character. Useful alternative to the cleaner preamps in the rme.
