I got a used distressor last night. I am the fucking stoked. I'm starting to amass enough recording gear that i want to start saving up for a new set of converters. The mackie i have has treated me right all this time but with the api/UA pres and such i have at my disposal, it might be time to upgrade that part of my chain.
TL : DR - i'm happy as fuck.
Awesome! Distressors are the shit!
