Recording Vocals - Microphone choices

In the videos I have been producing, we've listened to a number of microphones and how they respond to voice and instruments, but for completeness, we'd not heard them on voices. I'd been working on a little job where I'm creating a stage track for a person I've worked with for years and I always send him the stems, and a guide vocal. He then replaces that with his voice, and does another of just the track which he uses live with a real voice and the tracks. I thought it an opportunity to put out an array of mics and record my vocals on the different mics.

Vocal Compressor with Neumann U87+Vintech X73i

Hi everyone, I purchased a Neumann U87 microphone (vintage "1980) and Vintech Audio X73i, now I want to counsel,
I want to buy a compressor but do not know what better jump suit in this chain ...
Thinking about
WARM AUDIO WA76, but maybe you have other ideas, not expensive but perfect for this configuration

Neumann U87i vs. U87ai comparison

I found this interesting and entertaining so here ya go. It was pretty hard to hear the subtle detail on a youtube but to me they sounded close but the ai was sightly brighter. Interesting to hear how everyone hears things different. I like the fact they had a women's ears in this too. Women tend to be less tolerant to upper mids and she chose the ai.

Preamps for U87

Hey everyone! New to the forum, but I've been at this a while now. I recently purchased a house with a finished detached garage (a-frame, 20'+ ceiling) that I am planning to use as a project studio for myself and freelance recording gigs. Mostly rock/funk/jazz - transparency is important to me and I don't want to lose the room sound that I bought the U87s to attain.

My setup is:
Macbook Pro running Pro Tools 7.4.2 & Logic 8
Digi 002R + PreSonus Digimax LT
Mackie HR624s
