What is a preamp plugin?
A preamp plugin simulates a hardware preamp. A preamp amplifies the level of an audio signal. This helps prevent signal loss when using long cords on your instruments as well as maintain a clear sound. These preamp plugins can be used to replace a hardware preamp or to simply add color to any sound. You can think of them like saturators and distortion units as well as a signal booster.
