Man, just plug some mics in and grab some knobs. It brought mics to life that I have not thought about using in years. Kind of like getting a new mic cabinet in a way. You will get a HUGE kick out of it!

Sorry for the late reply, just got back from Atlanta.

Just put the VIPRE right next to you in the control room and start with the Impedance knob at 300 (probably louder than 2400) and the Rise time knob at fast. Then check with a few different mics which impedance sounds best on each mic. Once you got the mic/impedance you like for the particular instrument, set the rise time knob to taste, essey vocals or super bright acoustics on slower ie.. I would keep the level on the standard VU setting around 0VU if you have an instrument with a great dynamic range.

I find the biggest difference between the VIPRE and other pres is how big it sounds sitting in the mix, so make sure you check it with other instruments playing.

Let me know how it goes.

I've had mine for about 6 weeks now, and it's everything I thought it would be. One thing I've noticed - there's no "proper" way to set it. You just play till you get it right. For instance, you may have a mic with a 250 Ohm output, but in the Vipre, it may sound best set to 600 Ohms. I've also noticed that different impedence settings (and rise times) can make the sound appear closer or further away, even in mono. When tracking vocal choruses, I often use different settings on each "layer". Gives it depth and separation, without having to resort to reverb, etc.

What a great pre, wish I had several!

For 25 ms, I thought you meant a Dodge Viper.


If we could be so lucky....
