  1. I've heard a lot of different limiters used on the master (Manley being my favorite) but I'd like to know if anyone here is using that same limiter or compressor on let's say drum OH's. This does not by any means have to be a Manley, and under $2500 would be preferable.

    Let's see - there are tons of great options.

    In the downright cheap category theres:
    FMR - RNC (and we'll see about the RNLA)
    ART ProVLA (quite good despite price and reputation of parent company)

    In the mid-price range:
    Drawmer DL series stuff
    Langevin (Manley's li'l solid-state brother)

    In the upper -
    DBX 162 SL
    Vintage goodies
    and on and on and on...

    i'm known to use manley vari-mu on EVERYTHING.....

    (of course i use other comp's)

    i actually mixed an album where i took every track and put it on 2-inch.... then compressed each individual track thru a vari-mu..... and tracked that back into protools.......

    but when i got to the mastering part..... i just HAD to put a vari-mu on the master as well.....

    i'm insane..... i know! :lol: 8) :shock: 8) :lol:
