Of the compressors available today, what would you recommend, with the assumption that it would be used mostly for vocals? I've been narrowing things down a bit, and here's what looks good: UA 1176N UREI LA2, LA3 or LA4 Empirical Labs Distressor dbx 160S or 160SL Manley EL OP (or, really, and of their comps) Purple Audio MC77 Drawmer 1968 I know all of these are good in one way or another, and that they all have their nay-sayers or proponents, but keeping in mind that the *primary* application would be _vocals_... ...which of them is best? Is there a great one I don't have on that list you'd recommend? Is it better to hold out for a stereo compressor rather than a single channel? Is there a best all around? I am open to all suggestions and opinions...granting, of course, that they're regarding compressors, not "go jump off a bridge", et al. Thanks!!
