I am adding a few upgrades to my home podcast production studio. After discussions with Doug Kaye and Paul Figgiani I have added an Aphex 320A Compellor. This piece of gear is a marvel. It essentially acts as a leveler, as though someone were manually riding your gain control to account for variations in the audio. It is really helpful in post production on items such as the interviews I do for the Disneyland Podcast where the recording environment is not always ideal.
Once I get this gear set up, there are two additional pieces on my to get list. An Aphex 622 and an Aphex 720 Dominator II. As you can see, I am sold on Aphex. I have been really impressed with their gear. I will probably have to do a new Podcast About The Podcast as my setup has changed considerably including a Mackie Onyx 1220 and Telos One. If you are interested, my Symetrix 528e voice processor will be looking for a new home soon. Why all the changes? Blame it on this.
