Building out and maintaining a recording studio is a constant process of upgrading your equipment, so you can continue making every recording sound better than the one before it. You're always refining the signal path and collecting mics for every scenario, a rainbow of color compressors, better preamps, better converters, and a better play back chain. But we know in the backs of our collective minds that all this gear can't fix a pasty, uninspired performance by the musician on the other end of the mic. Wouldn't it be sweet if there was a magical upgrade that could help the players turn their performances up to 11? As it turns out, there is.
