    Solid Piece of Gear

    Posted by David Crowe on Jun 3rd 2011

    The EQ alone is worth the cash - very solid and usable and just plain nice. Would have liked a second mid EQ band to play with. If they made a stereo unit it would be really cool. Converters are super!

    great channel strip

    Posted by Devin Delaney on Aug 28th 2010

    only big draw back for me is that the only input is in the front... really doesn't look tidy in a rack when ya have to run your mic lines into the front of it...
    the converters on it are fantastic. I would consider buying another to toss them in stereo.
    Would be cool if there was a compressor to play with instead of the limiter... but for 1k it is still a lot of SSL goodness
