Ever since I purchased the TC Electronic Finalizer Express, I can't imagine my mixes going without it. This mastering compressor adds just the right amount of punch and clarity that's missing from most recordings. It's easy to use, and I can connect it to my system in a lot of different ways. From the softest to the loudest mix, the Finalizer gets it done.
I bought it for an install and bought one for myself!
I was looking for a simple yet clean way to record live with little to no fingerprint on the recording. Love the finalizer and it's ability to keep the lid on - esp. going straight to digital. Many live clients say, "how did you get such a good recording?" Easy to use and does the job very well. Lots of important metering!
