The lead vocal you are about to hear was actually recorded through the Creamer using a Shure SM7 microphone. Hence the warm, rounded top end. Audio file courtesy of Jay Baumgardner and “Cruz” from Brazil.
Finally it’s worth mentioning that Jay Baumgardner bought one of our prototype Creamers before we had a chance to snatch it away. Hurray!

The Creamer Preamplifier Shootout
Thursday, 03 June 2010 00:00
It’s been a long time coming, but we finally managed to get our act together and podcast this treat for all the audio nerds out there. It’s our first ever gear shootout at the studio, and we’re quite pleased with the results.
Why a preamplifier shootout? Well, we love preamps, we love Boris Drazic and we love The Creamer. The Creamer was amazing upon first listen so we had to stack it up against some of our existing beloved preamps. So, while Santana tests it out in L.A., FaderMaster Studios is testing it out in Vancouver.
We tested serial #000, the very first Creamer. With labcoats on, and our precious ears lubed up, we began the tests one evening in late May 2010 at the studio. We hope you find the results useful, especially if you are in the market for a new preamp!

Dominique Fricot was kind enough to be our guinea pig for the tests, and we thank him very much for playing the same thing over and over.
Here’s the MP3 of what came out with The Creamer, a lead vocal and acoustic guitar mix that we think sounds great. The M160 is on the acoustic and an SM7B on the vocal.
