    Universal Audio 6176 reviews

    6176 Channel Strip is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Vocals are tailored easily. Acoustic guitars are rich and full. Compression unit can be subtle. Easy to use with a very classic sound for your recordings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its Universal Audio, you know its good! If you have the money to be looking at this and really considering it, you should do yourself a favor and go ahead and make the plunge. Digital recording has always lacked the volume necessary (gain stage) to produce truly professional quality recordings> It is very frustrating I know, but you will soon feel much better!
