So I've been recording vocals with a Shure KSM-32,  which had been a little weirdly. . . flat.  I knew they were going through preamps on a Mackie board [ostensibly "boutique" preamps, but board preamps], but other mics through those preamps had been lively and awesome.

I like flat as much as the next guy, but not when it seems lifeless.

  So I started  putting them through this thing:

which has worked out nicely.

It's undoubtedly a consumer-y, mid-level [lo-level?] preamp, but it's really quite versatile and yummy and I'm happy.

And I make shitty music, so it's important.
