I want to up my game with channel strips, preamps, etc., and I figured this was the best place to take advice from rap/hip-hop engineers alike.

I have been looking at the PreSonus Studio Channel, and I think that it is a great budget option to run into my Focusrite Scarlett 6i6, which I love.

However, I have also heard that "all-in-one" channel strips (ones with EQ, compressors, and more inside of one strip) are not the best option, and I want the best bang for my buck.

Any recommendations for a $500 budget?

Thank you!
What I'd ask, is what exactly are you wanting to achieve with a channel strip?
