So Trey if you didn't have the 148 you would run the MiniMe pre? That just struck me as interesting...

I don't think I've ever heard your comments on the MiniMe pre... would love to know what you think!

Oh yeah and I second that emotion on the 148... if you want some punch nothing beats the 148!

I find the pre in the mini me to be very similiar to the v2 in that it is transparent. I am now running soem very good sounding mics that I am not very interested in coloring the sound of. I do, however, enjoy the coloration of the oade m148 as I feel it adds MORE. More clarity better around the edges, and it is a very quiet preamp. My feeling is that you should be happy with your mics and feel comfortable with the way they sound with no coloration. You can still add coloration but the mics have to start the equation for me. The preamp can either pass the signal (transparent) or color it somehow, yet I feel both are coloring it. I think the pre in the mini me is as good as any other pre amp out there barring the oade m148, yet why I am about to buy a v3 I am unsure. Does anyone have any experience running a pre infront of the v3?

Well, I am gonna sell the ad1k, as I feel it is about time to get rid of it anyway.  I think the mini-me will be just as good, and it will be fixable when it breaks...which has been really worrying me with the ad1k lately, especially considering I tape in small bars all the time.  I am gonna run some comparisions with the sax and the mini-me, then decide what to do.  My ears tell me from all of the samples I have heard that I will like the minime mic in, but we shall see.

I am sure you will like the mini-me.

if you run an external Pre with gain adjustment, what is the use of going mic-> in?  or are you just talking about eliminating the Sax altogether and using the Mme pre only?

you get the Mme, then you're gonna havta get a Lappy for some 24 bit action.  hehe...    

regardless, when you get ready to get rid of the Sax, give me a holler.  ;)

responding to a few posts at once

>> I guess what I meant by the best, is that it's currently the best portable A/D out there now. There is always room for improvement. Look forward to checking out the V3 next weekend to see how it stacks up.<<


I am 100% sold on the v3, at least with 4022s (and yes i've definitely given the minime it's fair chance).


>> Well, I can't lie, I love the apogee sound.  How does the a/d section compare to the ad1k? <<

i ran a minime/ad1k comparison at 10-11-02 mule if you want that

Scott, would love to hear the ad1k/mme comparison.  Well, I got a couple really good offers on the ad1k, so I am probably going to sell as I am worried about the potential of it breaking...and not getting it fixed.  Scott, I will let you know what I think in the next few weeks...wanna let me borrow your mini-me for a week in a couple weeks for the moe run so I can decide?? ;)
