The VT-747SP delivers in every way. The VT-747 features the same stellar sonic quality that the world has come to expect from Avalon while still delivering a look that is sure to impress and inspire.
An ideal cure for any mix that sounds "too digital." Just add it to your mix bus and listen to the magic. Use the solid-state path for a little punch or the tube path for that extra vitality and gloss. The VT-747SP is at home in any pro or serious project studio.

I use one in my mastering chain, sending the 2-buss out of an Akai DPS24, into the Avalon 747, and finally into an Alesis Masterlink. The compression is typical Avalon; top shelf. Frequency bands on the EQ were specifically designed for mastering applications and couldn't be better picked. You can easily roll-off the power-robbing LF "mud" in a mix, add clariy in the mids, and a distinct sheen on HF's. Or not.
Another great option is being able to use the 747 on keyboards and stereo guitars. While it lacks mic pre's, the unit can work wonders on a key patch, and gives a 3-dimensional feel to guitar processors, defining solos and bringing them "out" in a mix.
Very pleased with my purchase - you will be too. It's helped my masters sound more professional and it will help yours as well. Take the plunge - you won't regret it! close [-]
