Crane Song Spider

Been eying that unit for a while. What are your experiences with the Spider? How about the insert points in the stereo section, does it matter that they are not balanced? What does the FAT amp sound like? Is the limiter kind of like a "soft limit", can the threshold for the limiter be changed? Any quirks? Street price?

I'm sure it sounds absolutely wonderful, like everything David Hill designs (still using lots of his Summit gear).okk

The FAT amps are indeed PHAT; as to the limiter, I don't think the threshold is user configurable - I can say this, I've never been able to hear it working, even though I could see the little light blinking. The inserts have never been an issue with me - of course I always use short (10' or less) high quality cables, and the EMI/RFI in my studio is minimal. This thing is the best investment I've made in the last year, I just wish it had digital inputs so I could use the dither and tape saturation on tracks at mixdown. Guess I'll have to buy a couple of HEDDs :D .
