I have fallen in love with the 550b.

This is one of those pointless threads where I just profess my love for a piece of gear. HA!

No, I had a chance to work on a 1608 for the first time a couple of weeks ago. First time for me to actually touch the 550b and I gotta say I could mix every record for the rest of my life with just those eqs. I borrowed a pair of them for my lunch box and I'm done. I really don't want to give them back!

Has anyone had this experience with these? I have worked with Neve boards, SSL consoles, and others. They all have their place (and sound), but I gotta say the 550b is great!

What other eqs are you guys sold on like this?

Killer eq, but I like all API eqs, each has there flavor.
550b is killer on post vocals, kick.
Still love the 554 just as much.

I often wonder what a 550b would sound like with a UI or a nickel transformer. I tried them on the mix bus and felt they detracted from the sound somewhat. I do love them on certain things though!

On a different note.. Neither of your sites load correctly in google Chrome on Ubuntu 11.10 Just a heads up.

Hmmmm, not sure what to do about it. I am pretty behind the times when it comes to web development!

Thanks though.
