Thank you for your reply Ted. Much appreciated!
The VC7 is on his way, hopefully should be here before the end of this week!
So, yes I thought it would be good to add this dual preamp next to the P10.
Will test it asap and comeback here for a chat and get some feedback

On most (if not all) of those bricks, I used a bi-colour LED that was on all the time, but changed colour on extremes of ‘enhance’.
I think it was normally green and changed to a sort of orange/red when the enhance was operating. It served no real purpose except to look interesting!
The amount of enhance necessary to get a good vocal sound is normally less than that required to make the light change colour!

regarding the P38V7….. it’s such a new product; most have gone to studios in France, Italy and Greece; no I don’t have any north of Watford I’m afraid….. but I do have some in stock, so that might change soon!
Thanks for the replies Ted.
I was very happy with the sounds I got using ‘the Brick’ during the last recording session. The unit performed very well with plenty of gain considering I used it with a RNR1 ribbon mic for a kind of 60s Nancy Sinatra sound. I used a bit of compression and ‘enhance’ to add top end. Sounded fantastic.
About the P38V7, I’ll be in touch again when I’m ready ..but found one of your early P10 for sale (on your TFPRO Shop) and I’m very interested as I record lots of drums using stereo ribbons mics. I’m wondering if it would be a better unit to get.. If it’s still available!

Many thanks for the reply and explanations about compression release Ted,
Glad that it isn’t a fault on the unit! I’ll be using it tomorrow on a vocals recording session.
I think my next purchase might be a P38V7.. reading about it it sounds just what I need. Should sound great on drums.
I wished I was able to come and try a demo unit.
You don’t have any around the Manchester area do you?

Hello Ted, hello everyone.
I have been a fan of the green box for many years and had the pleasure to use a SC2 (1.05) on many occasions.
I’ve finally managed to buy a “Brick” serial number: VC05-232
No mention of VC1 on it but “JOEMEEK Voice Channel” under the V.U. so it must be one of the last made (?)
Just tested it, everything seems to fonction properly but I noticed that when I am on Comp Meter view and the Comp release is slow the V.U. stops his course at about -3dBs but eventually gets back to 0.
This doesn’t bother me that much but I wanted to let you know to find out if it’s a common fault..
Also, what is the subsonic filter exactly do? The little instructions booklet that came with the unit doesn’t mention it..
This is my first post in this forum so I hope to get a reply very soon!
