Anybody using this combination as a channel strip? What are you tracking with it and how do you like it? What style of music too?

I haven't used them together. I own an 1176 and while it sounds good on most things it isn't a first reach compressor for everything. I feel the same way about the ISA110 but it's probably more versatile then the 1176 is. Having said that I use my UA 1176 on lots of things but sometimes it really isn't the right choice.

An 1176 excells on what it is good at, and is usable on other things but not the greatest. I really prefer the 1176 on bass guitar, vocals, and overheads, and acoustic's above average on percussion. A little can go a long way and the tone is excellent, especially when the attack is slow and the release it relatively fast. As Coldsnow said Purple Audio is the way to go when it comes to a consistent product, from an ethical company.
