Not just for voice
Lew Canoe, 21.08.2017
I initially bought this unit to help with recording vocals (which it is superb for) but now use it for post-production on just about everything (guitars, bass, piano, strings - everything). If you are not a professional engineer with years of experience and full understanding of compression and EQ settings, then a few days with this machine and you'll be able to add clarity and fullness to your music. It doesn't use the standard naming conventions but you will soon understand how to use the features. Its cheap but far from nasty. Definitely recommend for all home studios. Great product.

Next time would change my mind
Adonis Storr, 07.11.2017
Was interested in getting this as it fit my purposes for killing two birds with one stone - a pre amp and a compressor.. However in future I would get seperate units. This is a wonderful device - it does exactly what it says it will.. however having studied a little more I think I would transfer the pre amplified signal into an EQ before putting into a compressor. If you have the money then I recommend doing this as I think you would achieve a better sound. On the other hand I was trying to save money and still, the audio out of the box is of undoubtable quality. If you're looking to save money, or especially for voiceovers I think this is a great cheap alternative, however if you're looking to make a more serious long term investment I would go with seperate units.
