U87/rnd5043/tg1 vocal chain! Dynamics Processors (HW)

U87/rnd5043/tg1 vocal chain!

Just found this great vocal chain for male vocal. U87 (non-ai) in cardioid, no hp filter, into my mp 573 (or basically any other N-word pre), 50 db gain. Into my 5043 compressor, FB mode, 2:1, fairly fast attack, release to taste, into TG1 in limit mode, just meters moving slightly on loud passages. Wow. Grit and tight bottom. Just thought I'd share the idea. The 5043 could possibly be replaced by any good working horse vocal comp. The Magic is really in the Neve/U87/tg1 combo...

...and how the tg1 adds upper mid grit to the U87. Doesn't need eq...

Have you experimented with the 5043 on higher ratios? I love that compressor and found that it has such a soft and smooth knee in FB mode that even an 8:1 ratio gives very musical and transparent dynamic control. I'm a big fan of the TG1, too, wouldn't want to have a studio without one!
