I dont give products 5 stars ever. But today I'm doing that. I got my Voice Channel 3 days ago. Let me tell you I am really impressed.
I recently recorded an album in a proper studio. Spent a lot of time learning from engineer regarding the very nice preamps, compressors, eq's etc that he had. Asked a million questions. Eventually I decided to just take a gamble on the Voice Channel because hey, it'll be my first channel strip and at the very least it should teach me a lot.
IT IS SOOOO GOOD. I've been recording in the box (plus a preamp) for a while. This was such an immediate upgrade. I've tried both using the USB out as well as running direct into my interface. The quality is absolutely there. The control though? If you're an in-the box mixer, you should still get one of these. Add a bit of compression and De-Esser on the way in and your singer can relax and focus on the performance. You can get SO MUCH MORE out of the singer that way. I am just so incredibly impressed.
