Hey dude, EL Distressor or UA 1176. I know we're talking about two different animals here but I would love your input!

Both totally great, but if I had to pick I’d go distressor.

"… all this talk about digital versus analogue, and in the box or out of the box, is a bit silly, because the source is everything. What matters most are a great song and a great performance. The single most important piece of equipment in a studio is not the analogue tape recorder or the DAW, but the record button of whatever machine is up whenever the artist has a moment of inspiration. If that inspiration is caught on a decent format, it will make a great recording. That’s the bottom line." - Justin Niebank
