I've been struggling with trying to find the right cords for my preamp for a long time now, then I have found out about the Edirol UA-25. I amitt I was on a limited budget at the time and I did not want to get this pre amp. But let me tell you something this pre amp saved me thousands of dollars because if I haven't found out about this pre amp I probably would have ended up paying thousands of dollars for equipment. Not only that the Edirol UA-25 is cheap but it is USB powered to, so that means all you have to do is put the plug in it in your computer and your are ready to record no soundcard needed. Oh did I mention that the Edirol UA-25 has a built in analog limiter and indicator. Not only that it has not on but two professional graded microphone preamp that I would have bought costed about twice as much as this. This is a good product and the costumer service is great! I got it delievered to me real fast, it was package well. This was an excellent investment that I have made in my home studio, I currenty use it with my Audio Technica 3035, quality sounds real great.
