    hi guys,

    i always thought that i'd be pefectly happy with working itb, but when i heard the recorded tracks for "save me" (thanks warren), i realized that i need a change in my recording chain before mixing to take it to the next level. since i use the uad 1176 versions a lot i'm thinking of getting a warm audio wa76 as well. it does get raving reviews and it seems like a lot of bang for the buck. i'm glad someone else in here is using it too! i think there's no sense in using outboard if it doesn't add the extra "analog magic", cuz' then you can use a plug in anyway. but it's all about this depth lee is talking about. and it's nice to just turn some real life knobs instead of clicking 😉

    cheers, johnny
