    What is your favorite outboard?
    What do you really need for a good mix?

    It's a three-way tie between

    Avalon 747
    Transient Designer

    I need all three for my mixes.

    flying faders
    lots of channels (pref 72 or more)
    gml eq's
    dbx902 deEssers.

    the transient designer is nice...but i can live without it...it sure helps badly recorded snares though...

    ssl compressor
    480, emt250
    couple of delays at least(if it's not dance or really modern pop...if it' that multiply everything...especially the fx)
    dolby stretch (for the vocals if it's a dense track)
    1/2' machine to mix to
    preferably playback off of an HD rather than a Mix rig .
