    demagnetizing mic preamps

    If anyone here can answer it, it will be Boswell. I read over on GS that transformers (notably Studer) may need to be demagnetized. If this is true, I would expect all transformers would be suspect over time. Is this true? .

    what is the colour in a mic pre?

    I'm curious what our interpretation of colour really is and what this translates into a mix for you? I mean, some pres are more middy, have less top and bottom with a git to them. Is that a good thing? Would I use those on a jazz vocal? not likely. Would I choose that on a B3 Deep Purple kind...

    Impedance question with mic pres.

    I am mildly versed in electronics. I understand that when you plug a mic into a mic pre the mic expects to "see" or "react" to a specified impedance. I think that you want the mic pre circuit to be x amount higher impedence then the mic (maybe I have that backwards). I also know that...
