You cannot go wrong with this piece, I love to drive my synths through its instrument inputs. Got one earlier, had to sell it, but then I decided to purchase one again it was so indispensable. Tons of mid detail and colour, but in a less beefy way, somehow dryer than the 1073. Great for vocals and for acoustic instruments with the amazing LP filter function. Love to be able to switch inserts in and out of the signal chain with a touch of a button.
