What are you missing from your current setup?
What textures are you trying to achieve?

The 5043 is a magical compressor,

For tracking, for Buss work??

Here for the gear
 

Hi,

i recently purchased the 5043 and i'm really getting into it. It's got me thinking about selling the liquid mix! I don't have the broadest experience with comps by any stretch, but there are several threads here started by others who have (see Greg Wells Portico 5043 SMOKES thread - there's a sample in there too)

Much like yourself - i bought it for tracking though i've only used it so far in mixing and it is a joy. I'm trying to understand it a bit better on raw material before tracking with it.

This one is next on my list. I want it for tracking and mixing, but all I hear is how great it is for mixing. If possible, please feel encouraged to post your thoughts when you get some tracking time in with it. This inquiring mind wants to know!
