I am looking at upgrading my studio and need to buy a good mic preamp and good compressor. I have a budget of about 4k US$. Does the 737 suffice for both needs, or should I get a 747 and M5? Or should I look at going another direction? I am running Nuendo 2 with MOTU 2408. I record mainly rock but occasionally other genres. I use a RODE Classic II mic, Nueman TLM 103, BLUE Dragonflies through an Allen and Heath board. But I don't currently have an outboard mic preamp or compressor. Help please.
There are many great ones to choose from in your price range. Most of which I would choose over the Avalon. The API 7600 would be a great choice for an all in one unit.
