My Top 5 Purchases of 2013

So 2013 is ending this week and I want to share with everyone my top 5 purchases I made this year.

Starting off at #5 is the Miktek C7. Miktek has been my go to mics for recording vocals since I first used them. now that I own one it will be my go to for a while. 2014 may bring me a Miktek CV3

At #4 is the Waves H-comp and H-delay. These both are go to plugins for me. The H-comp for drum bus and the H-delay for the vocals. These orange beasts get put to work on every mix for me.

#3 is the Maag Eq2. I've only had it for a few weeks but I've been amazed at how useful the 20k and 40k frequencies have been. The Air band is not hype, its the real deal. 

#2 is the JDK V12. The V12 is an extremely easy to use and versatile compressor. LED metering and detented knobs makes me prefer it to its big brother the R22. If you want something clean, easy to use, versatile, and won't break the bank, the V12 is what you want. 

My #1 purchase of this year goes to the Rupert Neve 511 pre. When I purchased this I was expecting it to be just another pre for me. Instead it has become my go to pre for vocals. Pairing this pre with the Miktek C7 and my vocals have needed very little processing after recording. I'm loving this pre so much this will be the last pre I buy for a while.
