Next step up from RNC... I want creamy colored goodness...
Ok, the RNC is clean and does its trick well... but I now find myself wanting something that brutally colors the sound in a gooey tasty way. I love the way the Focusrite Red colors the sound, it kinda makes it sound creamy, if you will. What is a good next step from the RNC that isnt too expensive? I'm guessing there isnt anything much in the $800 range, huh? Are there any old DBX's or anything that just happen to be killer for coloring up some vocals? Any good 1176 ripoffs?
You CAN polish a turd... if you freeze it first.
