What do y'all think about mackie xdr preamps in a live setting?
Well, after do a quick search, they're similar to the preamps in my Mackie Onyx 1640. They're solid little pres. Thrown everything I could at em, never had a problem. Everything comes through clear.
I would have no worries. I mean, they're not exactly Avalons or anything, but for live use or for recording demos... they'll be fine.
