comp: la2a, api 525, daking 91579

anything missing from that list you think i'd be a fool to not try out? keep this in mind: my music is ALL ABOUT the vocal, and the vocal has to be magical. i can deliver it, now i need to capture it. i have no interest in a neutral pre or transparent compression or any sort of homage to "honesty". larger than life, velvet, thick, and forward is the goal here.

mic is a u99.

My Chain is:

Soundelux E49> Great River MP-2NV > EQ-2NV > Chandler Germanium Compressor > Manley Massive Passive.

It's pretty much the best vocal sound I've ever gotten, though you could sub out the Chandler for a Slate Dragon for a more modern vibe.
