wondering what you're liking channel strip slash pre-wise as of late as -maybe not for everything but a good middle road- a good di strip. I know you liked your API lunchbox many years ago. maybe that has changed. I went BAE (neve based) a couple years ago based on a studio experience. it's great; I think it's better on guitar and drums the more I work with it. by the way. recent NYC-Hollywood transplant. hope to run into you. interesting perspective being on your side after following your career for so many years.
