I have checked out the DMCLs recently. They are not bad. Does anyone know whether the send/returns are balanced or not? I am thinking of buying that thing but still hesitate. The compressor is neither very good nor very bad, IMHO. Do you think it would be a good decision getting it and adding a decent eq into the path (any options?)? Or would you recommend me a different setup? I need two decent channels, meaning micpre/d.i./line, good compressor, good limiter, good eq, for around 2500 maximum! Any suggestions are more than welcome. Thanx.
