Heres my simple setup... U87 to Avalon 737 to (undetermined compressor) to Apogee Rossetta 200 to Apogee X Firewire Soundcard to Nuendo (PC). If i'm recording a female, i want her to sound like Britney Spears on "Everytime" lol. I record mostly R&B and Rap music. Which compressors work extremely well with vocals? My budget is $5,000. Which will help beef up my signal chain? The 737's comp doesn't help me much, its a good preamp and eq though. Thanks.
