    Ok I've been reading alot on RO with regards to preamps and compressors. I am pretty set on getting a Focusrite ISA 428 for the front end of my daw. @ $1600 it doesn't leave me much room for buying a compressor, so I think I want the RNC 1773 to go with it. One day I would like to get a red 3 compressor, but right now I'm just about spent up. :cry:
    Anyways, any thoughts?

    Baby steps .. one at a time. I think you are on the right path with the right attitude..

    The RNC is a reasonably transparent and decent piece of gear for the money ... it should do the job until you can get something with a little more flava' ...

    I've got the ISA428 and a pair of RNC's. You'll be be happy with both IMO. I particularly like the RNC on vocals and acoustic guitar.
