Great for live gigs, it has an input for your guitar or synth, an XLR mic input for your vocals, and the ability to mix these 2 signals along with a stereo backing track coming into the rear-panel line level inputs. For home recording, use the stereo input for monitoring your DAW's soundcard output.

Man....I have heard lots of crap about this pre. I've been a recording engineer for 20 years and to my ears this is a nice preamp. I've done a burn test against a 1073, a quadeight (pacific), a Manley tube pre and a 737 and I have to say that this preamp towards honor in front of its adversaries ..... in fact is like a Swiss knife, works rather well in all the tests that I did: Vocals, accoustic guitars (steel), nylon guitars, congas and brass.. the eq it's sweet...I don't like the compressor (actually I don't use it)..At this time this is bringing to my mind what was happening some years ago with the quadeight pres.....I wrote some good reviews that nobody believed and now these are very appreciated preamps and..?.and they cost a pile of money. Better test it and draw your own conclusions.
I tried one of these recently, and then had to have it. I now own 3. On Acoustic guitars, it is amazing! I've also used them on Electric Guitars, Bass and Vocals. Bass, with the EQ Magic button really comes alive. The EQ section is ok. The Dynamics section is great.... really rounding things out nice. But back to the acoustics, the brit color it adds is absolutely awesome. I also run a strat via 100w marshall thru a 57 - and this thing comes alive. Being a guitar player, and having recorded and played for nearly 25 years, I haven't heard anything better on Acoustics, and the electric stuff is very nice as well.
I was told by many users that, in the price range, I won't be disappointed with the Trident Celebration4t. They were right. It's as though I bought all new microphones. The sounds are fat, robust, tight & work better in mixes than ever before. Having the EQ & compression sections also saves time in the mix. I find that most adjustments upset the proper gain staging of the device & so require more tweaking than I prefer, but the sacrifice is minimal.I wish I had more to compare it to having previously heard my mics on Mackie console pre.s or the Bellari Rp220 tube. The 4t mic pre is op-amp driven, proving there is no such thing as inherently better circuit types, just better circuits. The improvement to sound is NOT subtle. It is boldly obvious.Included documentation is frightfully missing.
This Channel Strip sounds pretty good. The layout is easy to read, the notched input gain pot is a great feature. The bright LED's for output level and gain reduction make it visible in a dark venue.
