The aim of this collection of separately recorded strings, is to give a potential Breakout Box user an insight into to the wonders of recording/playing separate strings, without having to buy a Breakout Box in the first place...is there anything worse than a bad purchase!

ABOUT THE RECORDINGS & AUDIO PROPERTIES
LENGTH: 50 secs X 5 wav files
BIT DEPTH: 16-bit
SAMPLE RATE: 44.1kHz
Recorded with a GK STUDIO EXTREME breakout pre-amp, into an upgraded M-AUDIO 1010LT with fifteen AD8066 state-of-the-art op-amps throughout. The -96dB noise level is measured with a moderate playing strength. Heavy guitar solos can easily peak a maximum of -105dB dynamic range and beyond with GK STUDIO EXTREME. The Roland GK3 preamp separate strings would have measured around -86dB with a passive breakout box. This is still an excellent noise figure, and well worth a serious venture into recording separate strings. The TOTAL-HARMONIC-DISTORTION figure for GK STUDIO EXTREME is 0.00453%.
