It arrived yesterday, I was waiting for check its sound out and then mail you. I just recorded a clean guitar yesterday(SM57/Affinity-RMEAdi2-Pro tools) and... Whoa!!!                                                         It was a quick checking, but it sounds awesome. I get some intense recording sessions these days... It´s gonna be great,jeje.                                                 Really Albert, thank you for your support, info and everything .... really good stuff. I´m use to visit your web, but I hope you´ll send me any news about your stuff...”

So far we've tested it with a U-87 condenser recording flute and clarinet and the results were excellent. The sound was a bit on the bright side with more presence than we expected but very nice overall. We've also recorded a female voice singing some chorus lines with a Geffell UM-711 . The combination gave really wonderfull results again and the impression we have is about the same.Lots of presence but big and smooth at the same time. In the next few days we'll have the chance to try it with different mics and various sources so we 'll start having a more round picture . So far we are really impressed with the sound !...”

At first i also need a better camera, 2-3 weeks i came back with a verbal and optical statement, ok!....                                                     I wanna also use the s2 for mastering in combination with some other  audiogear, Summing amp, Summit Eq 200B, s2, SPL Dynamaxx, SPL Tube Vitalizer  MK2 and the Waves L2 (Hardware) and back to the DAW...”

The recordings are made on a Studer A80 (analogue) master tape recorder.                               According to what I could listen yet, the music is very realistic. No noise, a lot of bass and medium-bass, fine trebles. It flows and never hurts. The musicians are themselves very surprised by the natural when they listen to it and "open their mouth". Many of them usually don't like recordings and keep very critical. So it's a great performance...”

"in the face", for bass is perfect!! And the colour of trafos is very beatifull. I like much the small compression that the valves add, is very musical. I`ve tested the preamp more in detail and i like it very much. It`s quite wild, and i like it.                     As soon as I have any picks and samples I`ll send them to you...”

Took my 6string fretless bass, 6 string freted bass, my Stratocaster, took samples from Keyboard and made a mix.Woow very fat sounding! for the first i heard no really something, than i switched the bypass and woowww! Great! Next week we will start a new CD production and a know all kind of stuff will run through the SII I will check the Faust also in this prod. If i finished, the "Gearslutz" will hear from me. The Faust seems very natural with a good body in the middles.                                                                 Make a buss mix from BFD drums and dist.guitar and bring the hole mix through the SII again.

All voices are recorded with your "Violent force" and a T-Bone tube microphone. I use your "Solution 2" on the mix.                                       Here are two differents recordings with different bands:....”
