I have made a few more changes to the podcasting setup I am using. I have completely removed the Symetrix 528e. It has been replaced by all Aphex gear. I highlighted some of the upgrades in this post.
Since then I have added the Aphex 622 Logic Assisted / Gate with downward expander pictured above. The amount of control the Aphex gear gives you is astounding. I actually have had this piece of gear in place since mid December. Today I found a screaming deal on a B-Stock Aphex 720 Dominator II Precision Multiband Peak Limiter. This was the last piece I was on the look out for. It is rather expensive ($1350) so I was happy to see that my friends at BSW had a single B-Stock unit with full factory warranty for only $499.
Once I get everything settled in, I’ll put something up about what all this stuff does. Much of it comes into play for the podcast production I do for clients like Disneyland, however it certainly helps for Reel Reviews as well.
