    Anyone here have this and use it for mastering?

    I'm considering using it as a 2nd comp in the mastering chain after my Gyraf Gyratec X Vari Mu, or to compliment it. Sometimes using two compressor with subtle compression sounds better than just one, especially if they have different sounds (IMO).

    Since my Vari My already provides a low end boost I'm worried if the AD2045 will do more of the same (a review mentioned a nice low end boost in the AD2044).

    It'll probably all be clear when I test it later today, but any comments much apprieciated.

    avalon products in general are pretty uncolored and transparent..... with a slight "sheen" in the top end....

    that is the case with the 737 channels and the master eq.....

    Agree. :cool: I use an AD2055, and the high end definitley has some flavor, which I like very much. Overall I've been extremely happy with their gear.
