I picked up a used Presonus MP20 for stupid cheap a couple of months ago and I really like it. I am aware of all the mods but I don’t think I’m going to touch this one. It sounds really good to my ears. Has a good thick sound with a nice sheen to it. I’ve tried this thing on acoustic guitar and vocals and boy am I impressed with it for the money. Anyone have any recommendations on other good uses? How do the Instrument inputs sound? Also want to say how often I’ve seen negative things about this unit and wonder why??? Maybe mine has mods that I’m not aware of but it sounds dang good!
For the Presonus MP20 should easily meet all needs. I do know people that still love their Presonus MP20. I have owned the MP-20 for about two months now, together with a Grace Design-101, a pair of racked Ward-Beck 470Ds, a Focusrite Penta, and a few other “minor players” (such as an Art tube MP, etc.). I love all four for different reasons, but can tell you that the MP-20 is a great unit and more versatile than all the others I have. For example, it is a perfect “stereo stand alone unit” and I plan to do a “live” recording using only two room mics through the MP-20 direct into a DAT.
