The problem is, I really don't know what the differences are and which are more desireable for tracking drums. DBX's model #'s seem pretty confusing to me and I'm having a hard time figuring out what is what. My rememberance is that the VU models had more personality to them. I want to add some meat and some punch and color the sound a little. Can anyone here give a little DBX history lesson for me!!!
Thanks for any comments you DBX lovers might have. thumbsup thumbsup Cheers,
For tracking drums i would say none of them.
For mixing drums its a different story.
