Hi, I'm looking for a vocal channel strip or set of rack gear to lug around with me to practice and live venues. I primarily need it for phantom power, compression (really squash it), and maybe eq to filter out feedback. I am also considering using it to output into and in ear monitoring system. I know some live sound guys won't dig using my gear so I it would also be good to have a way to split the signal from the mic so they get the undoctored and i can still send mine out to an in ear monitor or my own powered monitor. Monitoring just sucks at most clubs is the main reason I want this and to save my voice a bit in rehearsal Here's what I've been looking at so far: JoeMeek ThreeQ or sixQ (heard conflicting reviews though) Behringer UltraVoice Digital (I know, the B word!) PreSonus Eureka Pro (might be good for recording even though I plan on building some Neve units from SCA) I'd also be interested in just buying the components seperately (eq, preamp, compressor) and racking them if that would be better than a strip. I'd like to try and keep everything under $500. Any suggestions or any other gear I should check out? Thanks!
