This definitely seems like the way to go, especially in the studio and integrating with digital without spending a fck ton of money. I'm sure you've done your investigations. Could you describe any of the pres and gear? or places to look?
wanted to add something here: after talking with my buddy he recommended getting a couple of the Universal Audio 610s. A bit pricey... but he said "when you run your mics through here, the recording will sound so good on your ears you'll feel like you were in the room recording with them" He usually goes to his buddies place that has all this gear when recording.
I could see my self bussing through a couple of these... and then have one for any recording.
