    Home Studio Hardware Upgrades?

    It’s a new year & time to plan ahead for tax purposes. I’m getting a decent sound but I need to step up to a more commercial grade quality.

    I’m running...

    Neumann KM-184 mics.
    Avalon 737 pre-amps.
    DIGI 002 (with Pro Tools 7.1).
    Waves Platinum Bundle Plug-ins (with L-2 & L-3 limiters)
    McDSP Analogue Channel.

    I’m presently working quite a lot with MIDI...

    VSL
    Stylus RMX
    Atmosphere
    Trilogy
    Colossus

    I’m looking for hardware to make noticeable improvements in clarity & transparency. My guy at Sweetwater has recommended...

    Manley Varimu compressor-limiter
    Empirical Labs Distressor EL-8SX
    Apogee Big Ben clock.

    Needless to say, we ain’t buying all that stuff at once- $$$!! Any suggestions would be appreciated. Of course, a single “Magic Bullet” unit would be great but I’m not expecting miracles.

    Thanks.
