I'm super obsessed with the idea of investing in a 500 Series rig for my MPC X. I'm thinking I will get a 10 space rack and fill it with quality preamp modules like:

2 BAE 1073MPL preamps (Most accurately built Neve 1073 clones you'll ever find today)

2 SSL VHD Preamps

2 API 512v Preamps

2 Chandler TG2-500 preamps

2 Chandler Germ 500 MK2 preamps

With this setup I can track my beats directly from my MPC X into my DAW with various flavors of analog preamps. I can also sample vinyl from my DJ Mixer into whichever preamp I want or my guitars, bass, analog synths or drum machines.

A good chasis and these preamps will set me back a bit, but it will be well worth the business investment...

They look like very nice preamps.
I built two JLM audio preamps.

I really like them for sampling. But they didn’t seem to add much that I noticed much when tracking out.

I think what I need to do is build a compressor for tracking out.

i have no training or skills. i just put the part in the hole it says and solder.

I don't know how to solder and there are no workshops or classes in my town...
