just wanted to tell you that I love the distressor.

hi Dave,

I've only been recording for a few years now(around 5)...usually in my modest home studio. Recently the band I'm playing with got a deal and I got the chance to record the vocals for our record.(thanks to the generous Matt Wallace) I used a distressor for all the vocals and It sounded great!!!!! I've been slowly saving my pennies because I honestly can't live without one. Funny I'm signed to a major label and I can't remember when I was ever this broke.heh

just wanted to let you know you have a great product!!!!!

Thanks Lee! And congratulations to being signed.

In case you havnt found out yet... being signed is only the first step to a successful career and has NOTHING TO DO WITH MAKING MONEY! <Laughing> You gotta get to the 2nd and 3rd albums before that is gonna happen. GOOD LUCK and thanks again for your comments!

Lee, just out of curiousity, what was the rest of your vocal chain, mic, pre, etc? And what setting did you use on the Distressor? Thanks and best of luck.

Very cool! Was that the Reference Gold or Cardiod? You'll have to let us know when it gets released so we can check it out.
