    Crowd,

    Sorry if this post overlaps others which are similar (some even recently by me), but I need some feedback from the mastering brains on the purchase of a hardware limiter (or compressor/limiter) for my studio.

    For me, it's now down to a choice between a plug-in/dsp suite (probably UAD-1 Studio) or one of the following hardware pieces:

    A.R.T. Pro VLA
    Aphex 323
    Aphex 720
    dbx DDP
    dbx 1066
    Drawmer ADX100
    Drawmer DL241 XLR
    Drawmer MX30
    PreSonus CL44
    TC Works Finalizer Express

    I know this topic kind of skirts the bounds of custom preferences, but I'm looking for a *transparent as possible* RMS boost for my mixes (not in your face loud, but comparable to "lively" name label contemporary releases.) It's pre-mastering time; & any feedback on the above gear (or additional gear recommendations) will be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    mark4man
