    Couldn't you just use an inline pad?

    The pad changes the sound!

    Okay. This is happening. I would really like a a couple well recorded DI's to use for part of the shoot. I haven't picked up a guitar in anger for quite some time...

    Yes! I am very eager to hear a comparison. I haven't seen any real Unison comparisons online. Even Unison Neve/API/UA versus the stock Apollo pre is strangely missing from the internet.

    Hmmm... piece of cake. I'll do a pass of something through all 4 Apollo options. I also happen to have the hardware to match.

    Hey Matt, wondering if you had any low priced clones to test against, like a Golden Age Pre73?

    Sure don't, but if someone sends me one I'll gladly shoot it out.

    Been using/owning 1073 incarnations since the 90's. Original Neve and BAE. They all sound a little different unit to unit. Just my humble opinion. UA has captured the tone almost exact. Something they have done with the MKII's. The hardware unit has a touch more depth which is the case in these comparisons, but UA is about spot on. A few percentage points won't matter to most. Especially if your monitoring and room is not up to par. You probably won't even hear the differences. I won't give up my 1084 to use the UA 1073mkII unison though.

    Well, I did a part of the shootout so far (some vocals). Still could certainly use a couple DI tracks from a member for use with this.

    Have done:
    Male rock vocals
    Acoustic guitar
    Nylon guitar
    Male indie-folk vocals

    Could be a long while before I do more.

    Want it as-is now?
