Default Mic Pres on the 002

Does anyone know what kind od PREs are in the 002. I know that MBOX is using Focusrite... Is the true for the 002 as well? What are your thoughts on the 002 PREs? Is it worth buying a better one?

They are not Focusrites; I think they're some kind of hybrid. Most assuredly, it is worth buying an external pre or eight or twelve! I only use the 002R's pres for talkback, scratch recorddings, or when I run out of channels.

no there not focusrite pre's but it's been mentioned that the
pre's on the 002 are based off of the pre's on the Digi PRE

whether they are or not, the pre's on the 002 are better than
the pre's on the MBox

I agree that the 002 pre's are passable, but if you a/b them against a decent outboard mic pre you'll hear a marked difference. There are some great deals on EBay. Avalon is my personal favourite, but everyone has there personal fav's.
