Wow

The more I use this unit the more I love it. I agree with a lot of the other reviews, this could have cost double and still would have been worth it. Thank you Brian Loney. (I sent some demo audio, feel free to use them and thank you again).

Way Worth It

I never wrote a review for any of my purchased gear but the APHEX Channel is a MUST have! GREAT piece of gear they could've priced it at 2 grand easily! Everything I looked for in recording vocals I found in this one unit * warmth * color * tone * clarity * a true underdog that comes out with the WIN!

Aphex deliver what others can't

Am glad I pick aphex , I made two songs ,one with UA 6176 and the other with my aphex ,I was surprise what aphex did to my vocals , really good product . Don't get me wrong UA is master compressor but the aphex have some extra bullet that UA don't have , plus with the extra of the aphex I can add the AU 6176 or other processor and create another world sounding .
