Question for George - API


New Member
Question for @GeorgeWhittam I've heard you mention a few times that you like the API Vision channel strip for voiceover. What makes it your go to rather than the Avalon or Manley? I ask because API is currently on sale for $49. I have the Avalon and the Manley Mic Preamp (not the full VoxBox). Appreciate it!

I like the compressor and expander very much, the Avalon is too transparent with no expander or de-esser, the Manley is too colored with no expander and inflexible compressor. Sometimes I use the Manley in Unison for the transformer and de-esser with the API as an insert, when someone is doing promo/trailer work. Avalon is so transparent it's almost "pointless" at all to use it IMHO.
