Sonically, the 8MX2 is somewhere between "colored" and "colorless": it definitely has a sound of its own, but that sound is hardly "effected". Rather, it recalls classic board preamps - just slightly boxy, barely warm, ever-so-slightly rolled-off on the highs and lows, and just a little forward. If you listened to it on its own without any frame of reference you might not even pick up on these characteristics. They are very subtle, and generally speaking, very pleasant. The sound is not fatiguing. I could use the 8MX2 on just about anything from kick drums to horns and love it. I loved the sound of the 8MX2 on electric guitars - use used it with a variety of amps including Vox, Marshall, Rocket, and Clark amps, with mics including SM57s, AT4050s, GT AM40 and MD1a, and others, and in every case the sound of the 8MX2 flattered the amp and mic. The sound had great presence and focus, and seemed to stay put in the mix. We also used the 8MX2 on drum overheads, which really benefitted from the subtle presence boost, as did kick and snare drum. The 8MX2's gain control goes from 0 dB to +64 dB. The availability of a 0 dB setting virtually eliminates the need for a pad, an unexpected convenience. In practice, I found myself not using the limiters much. Back in the days of 16-bit recording, where every bit was precious, the idea of running super-hot and using limiters made more sense than it does these days, with 24 bit converters sporting 120 dB of dynamic range. The limiters are super-fast brickwalls, and do work well to absolutely prevent digital overs, but their sound is fairly harsh. Used in moderation as failsafes, the limiters serve their purpose very well: they prevent a keeper take from being ruined when some freak transient threatens to splat the converters. In at least one application the limiters absolutely saved the day as we tracked a very dynamic song and the drummer just lost his mind at the end of the track.
