This is a follow-up from a previous post where I was asking questions about 500 series preamps. The good news is that my daughter was accepted to a couple of good colleges and got some good scholarship offers. The bad news is that she is choosing the more expensive of the her top two options (Duquesne's Pappert School of Music) so there is going to be a little belt tightening around here. As far as gear purchases for the studio that means that instead of going for a 500 series rack and starting to fill it this summer, I'm going with the cheaper price per channel option and get an API 3124+. That will give me a pretty solid start and it might be the only major purchase I make this summer. However, the next step is a bit hazier. I may want to stay with the 19inch rack units rather than going with the 500 series units, but I want to keep looking within the style of API/Neve inspired pres. Great River and Pacifica make interesting units in the $1K per channel range, but people have also been saying good things about the Langevins. Is the Dual Mono worth looking at, or should I save up for the Dual Vocal? What other units in this style should I be considering?
