How many of you are using portable pres like the sounddevices units, or a portable mixer, before entering your recorder, and recording sfx?
Whats the pros and cons, if any?
Having a sd 702 myself, but not using a frontend pre, yet.

I use four Sound Devices mp-1s in front of an Edirol R-44 and I really like it. I set the mic pres once and then fine tune on the Edirol as needed.
