Hey guys I need a cheap preamp for a mic for audio recording. Anyone ever use the
Behringer tube ultragrain preamp?

you mean this?


anyway, i dont think the tube does anything but it does warm up a direct line into a computer or digital recording.

i dont use it much anymore.

but i had it out today, which is pretty funny.

pros:
i like that it's not plastic.
it's not that strong a metal, but mines maybe 4 yrs old now.

i can adjust volumes at the box.

it's simple compared to rack pre amp systems.

and makes the recording less sterile.
it's cheap.

cons.
no power button!

i dont like the plug it came with. you need to use their adapter.

i think the tube probably isnt even connected.

might add a little buzz.
depends how clean the line is.

Why get a cheap one? Theres actually some good ones that aren't really that expensive. And better than a cheap ass behringer.

The $30 Art version has a meter. I have two of them and they work great.


The splitcom?

I really only need it to boost a mic signal a bit and I'm probably not going to use it very often. But I will look at the Art splitcom

The tube is most likely functional. It looks very similar to the Art. I have the schematic of the Art preamp. The tube runs off 48V and the heater is connected to 6V.

fyi, i just plugged my acoustic/e into the behringer into a PA.

i have to say for $40. that's one hell of a boost.

no added noise.

just adding because i had it out today, and you were asking.

i guess the art is about the same.

Pretty much the same pros and cons. No power switch, ext power supply, metal case, input and output gain controls (gain as in volume, not distortion). Pretty simple and functional with plenty of gain on tap, and phantom power. Didn't noticeably color the tone to my ear.

No they would ideally plug into the 1/4 line ins of an audio interface.
