The VTB-1 BTW (IMHO) is several notches above the low cost (though fine) channel strips mentioned here. Definitely superior to the Mackie Onyx pre's FWIW (that are OK).

AKG P120 (black) is somewhat of a sleeper, for vocals. Under $100.

Airwindows is worth investigating...

why an aston halo? $300 seems a little superfluous for a reflection filter; you can get a massive GIK portable isolation booth for 25$ more, though for basically nothing you could just stock up on some U-Haul blankets to hang behind the mic.
