i love the 1176, but i have this desire to get less popular tools that do an equally stellar job in a slightly different way than the traditional go-to's, in a vainglorious attempt to have my productions sound a little different than everyone else's.

thanks for your time,

apologies for resurrecting this thread from the dead, all!

gregory, please share where your quest has taken you today. now that you have several specialized sonic tools on offer, do they play a role within your vocal tracking to yield that buttery, intimate, huge and silky sound? (not quoting you exactly but these are things i'm aiming for along with a bit of stardust!)

also, i'd hoped to hear your vocal sample but it's long gone...

thanks much,
