  1. Hi guys, I've got a Focusrite ISA 430 MK II, and I need a channel strip with a different kind of sound, so I can get two kind of sounds out of my setup. What do you guys recommend?:cool:

    I just.... need to know!

    Budget? Lots of choices. More if theres lots of budget.
     
  3. The Budget?

    About £2500 or $3700. What do you reckon?:confused:

  5. Yeah, but what about a channel strip?

    That looks cool - eight tubes!

    GROOVE TUBES VIPRE

    However, although the routing options in the 430 mk II mean that I could use the vipre with the eq and compressor, I was thinking another channel strip, since that would make things simpler.

    What other channel strip do you recommend and why?

    I gonna record some heavy rock with a few soft songs.(y)

    You wont need an EQ with a ViPre. It pretty much stands on its own in a rather distinct and perfect way. The variable impedance input allows you to find different sounds out of any mic you put into it. In a very positive and full sounding way.

    API 7600 would be an ideal compliment to the Focusrite. You may very well want to dump that 430 MK II for another 7600 after you hear and use one.
