i dont mean to be a jerk here so dont take this personally...

what it means to me when you ask which is better and ask for an explanation is that you dont know what the features do and when to use them. If you did, you would know which is better for your needs. This also means to me that when you buy the "better" one based on our opinions, that you wont be able to best use it.

So go take some time to learn what the different features on the units do. Decide whether you'd rather have a built in de-esser with a set enhancer level, or no de-esser with variable enhancement.

check out the links in this website about ratio, threshold, limiting, gates, etc etc

Good luck, have fun, and be patient. Becoming a sound engineer takes time. (even a home sound engineer!)

In my opinion the first one is more for tracking drums, the second one is more for recording and processing vocals or processing stereo mix. The second one has more features and is more universal.

Whao..Whao...ease up there drake "the dragon". All the guy is doing is asking for a little help on his purchase options. Is this not what the forums are for. Patience my boy. Does anyone who is without gear really know what all of their needs are until they try some stuff out. A lot of valuable info are in these forums. Even reading links may not help you know exactly what you need to produce a sound that you've got in your mind. Heck, you may not even know what you want to produce until you hear some selections and the noise that comes out on the other end. Oooo..I like that sound...or that sounds best. Ya know. All you can really do is take your very basic idea of what you want to accomplish, and then get some general imput of purchase options from those in the forum, and then just make a decision. Who knows, you may say something he never thought about and then he may decide to try it. In some way, we are all contributing to each home studio, helping to mold it into something great!!

Yeah drake was a lil rough on that comment but I understand, u get tired of the same basic questions.. so i understand...Before i ever post anything on this forum I always find out more about what I want/need.. this way I got a general idea of what it is I want/need. Its just I wanted more help on what to get. Because every one has diffrent opinions.And I was hoping some one on this site had one of them..or maybe someone would tell me that there a waste or what not..you know?
