I'm looking to buy some channel strips to add some color to sources tracked into my digital system. I'll be tracking some synths and occasionally some live stuff... My question is how does something like the API 7600 channel strip compare sonically to something like an Amek Pure Channel, or maybe one of the Neve modules. I'm looking for a "big console sound", and I'm not really familliar with the API sound. Any comments? Thanks. Kenn.
