I've been hired to do an ongoing project. It's location recording of storyrtelling for a series of videos. I record them telling their tragic life stories, then a slideshow-like video is added later. I've done a couple already using my mbox and an NT2A, and while it has worked fine, Id really like an inline compressor, and a better pre wouldn't hurt. I'm looking for something that's no bigger than 1U and relatively cheap. So far I've found the DBX 376, and some of the focusrite platinum crap. Anyone use the 376? I thought about throwing an RNC on the mbox insert as well. Any other suggestions in the sub $600 range (If I can keep it in that range, they'll buy it for me).
