Is anyone out there using a Catalinbread Epoch Pre - or something in a similar vein - as the front end of a modeller or in to an interface? I use a laptop based rig (lets keep it on topic and not answer with 'don't use a laptop!') and was thinking this might be a nice front end to replace my interfaces preamp to add some colour and niceness. I'm certain it would do the job but lots of comments about it being best at end of chain and in this instance it is technically 'front' of chain - probably wouldn't make an awful lot of difference but thought I'd ask! Splendid.
