Thanks for your reply!

I can't find anywhere that sells that superanalogue channel. The alpha channel only had some form of limiter and I would rather have more control with compression. SSL have released the new range of superanalogue and the nearest thing is the x-rack which is capable of too much. I just want the one mono channel.

Ive been looking at some other forums on choosing the right pre-amp for rap vocals. The Mindprint Envoice MKII looks perfect but is it going to produce the right sound I'm looking for? I definitely want a preamp with built in compressor and eq, with a gate and or valve being a bonus, with a digital output.

Below is a draft song of my mate rapping. It has been recorded on my behringer b2 pro through my firewire solo processed after using waves ssl channel rtas plugins, although I plan to use the NT1A unless anyone thinks otherwise? It doesnt sound bad but i want a more powerful and rich sounding vocal. The instrumental is also an mp3 taken from youtube so it doesnt help with judgement. I can upload clean and processed vocals if it helps.

I think i'll stick with the Presonus Monitor Station, I was considering the central station due to it being passive but it's twice the price and i've heard people have problems with the remote. My room is untreated, do you think i will be able to hear the difference? I spent a lot of money on these HS80M's i dont want to compromise any quality.
