Comments

I'm geared for recording rock bands live and maintaining the "live" aspect throughout the recording process. I'm a musician first and studio guy second. At this level studio equipment is studio equipment, but nothing substitutes for a great instrument played by a great musician. That, to me, is as good as it gets.
