This is where I want to be in a year from now

Sometimes you have to make some clear goals in your life! Mine is this:



Don't pay too much attention to the MOTU pieces, I have them right now (the 8pre is my main interface, I don't use the old timepiece but it has funky blinking leds), and only plan to use the 8pre for ADAT extension with the Ensemble if I have it. I'm planning to buy a lot secondhand because I'm a college student and don't have that much money. I'm still planning to use Logic for mixing because I like it and I have an MC Mix which I love. I have a nice mic collection and a good room.

As you can see, the only thing missing is a good EQ! What would you guys recommend? It has to be relatively affordable...

I don't have a lunchbox I'm afraid... Is it worth the investment? I do however adore the UA 2-1176... Are there any 1176 like lunchbox compressors?

I think the budget for the EQ is 1200$ max. Arsenal looks very nice.

I greatly prefer the rack unit to the 500 unit on the Arsenal... don't know why [on a technical level] as they say it's the same stuff inside... but it sounded much deeper and clearer to me than the 500 series unit.

Personally... I wanna be here in a year:

I've worked with a 1073 in the past and really liked the EQ. Is there any affordable EQ with a Neveish sound?

The Chandler looks great. I'm interested in any alternatives anyhow. Is there another affordable (max $1200) EQ with a Neveish flavor?

I've been using the API 550A and 560 plugins a lot lately, and I love them. Wish I had the real thing.
