Right now I have a 1u Focusrite Clarret 18/20 Thunderbolt, and a 2u Joe Meek Compressor, as well an Empress Studio Compressor pedal for when I want a different flavor, and a 1/2u M-Audio 2 channel mic preamp. I was thinking about getting a 4u rack to leave a space above the interface for heat dissipation, but is there anything else I really need I will r egret not having available in hardware form vs plug-ins? If you had max $600 what would you add to that to fit in a 6u rack?

A high end Mic pre like a API 512 or 312 or BAE Something you can always rely on. , Nothing too colorful as they tend to have more specific uses and you have the Meek already. But that’ll be more than 600 beans.

Should I be scared, or just bend over, bite my lip, and take it like a man?

So yeah ofcourse this happens, just a wee bit little more than 600 beans. :facepalm:

I don't know if I love you or hate you, but I know now for sure that I should never go to the strip club with you. Which obviously means it will happen for sure.

Because, fuck you I won't do what you tell me! ;)

Hahaha, I kinda thought I did that with twin 4 bottle Hiwatts, the mix of Custom Shop and vintage Gibsons, and seven 4x12's, each loaded with different sets of vintage unobtanium speakers and bevy of top builders takes on the 3 Transistor Tone Benders.

But if this is what finally earns your blessing, so be it.
