Found out the studiospares valve preamp sells to next to nothing used...and has a ground pin. so should earth everything (and hopefully be useful for more gain much like OP suggesting). notice its impedance its super high (but engaging phantom lowers it) so might improve ribbons and dynamics a bit too.

My 2 cents...

I have a Zoom R16 and record all my instruments direct to the unit mostly dry and or the odd wet track. After I recorded all the instruments to the Zoom I move my SD card from the Zoom to my computer and use the Reaper DAW to mix and add effects etc. For myself, this method works very well. Then if you wish, transform your finished WAV file to a MP3 file and upload to YOUTUBE. Or other Web based platform you would like to spot light your finished product.

and remember...clones are people too.... :geek:
