And it does produce quite a bit of magic specially with the higher frequencies. Does anybody have information on the differences between the BC-1 mark ii the BC1-S which is their current offering? I agree with Andre's observations but also found eg ssl to act as a "bandpass filter" and c2 losing lots of bottom - most comps do something to the frequency response, also settings dependent... BC1 does lose some top even in bypass but also "cleans up" the midrange at the same time so doesn't sound dull, dark or muddy. how do you compare it against the Alan Smart C1??

Yep, it doesn´t have the "grab" of the SSL if that´s what you´re looking for. How would you compare this to the Drawmer 1968 on the mix bus? had my BC1 for a few days now and i´m impressed! Got my BC1 a month ago and I keep finding new ways to use it on different styles of music. I am specifically interested in how many times guys would reach for this vs. a Rolls or C1.
