housesongzaol.com Posted January 5, 2001 Share Posted January 5, 2001 I plunked down some cash for a Peavey vmp-2 pre-amp after hearing all the wonderful things about it and Well, I', not hearing what the rave reviews are all about. Unfortunately, I had to special order it because there were none in stock to check out so I didn't get to hear before I buy like I do with everything I buy. I figured the way everyone described it that it would be the answer to my prayers but I'm not hearing it. For one,when I plug a synth or drum module in the 1/4 inch connectors on the front panel there is a instant noise floor, I can plug in a non-active bass Guitar and no problem but anything with electronics and it's instant noise. I plugged my AKG 414 in the back XLR and the noise floor wasn't there but nothing stood out as being "warm" or "creamy" to me. The stock pre's in my Spirit Folio SX soundboard sound the same as what I'm getting from the VMP-2 and I have no noise floor like i do when I'm connecting to the VMP-2 front panel. Please tell me my ears aren't trained enough and what to listen to in particular because I'm not hearing what the fuss is about. I really don't want to own a $675.00 boat anchor. http://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/smile.gif And if you don't have any suggestions does anyone want to buy it?
