Oh for sure. The main reason I would stay with standard 19" is that I like mobile cases that lock up secure for transporting.

The BAE six space or any of the 10 or 11 space ones are all rackable. Problem solved. If you're talking about taking them on airlines, that's what I would do. All we need now is 500 series converters, and you would be really set.

I keep rotating my BAC 500 to different duties on each project I do and its pretty crazy how good it is on pretty much everything. This week it is slaying on kick drum for a heavy rock band.

I am having fantasies about a 10 space API rack filled with BAC 500s

I'm with you there. I find myself wanting to patch anything that needs compression thru the BAC.

Yeah, its funny. My first reaction to the unit was that its amazing, but I would not want it to be my only unit (there are probably some posts where I state as much) but the more I use it, the more it seems to be my first choice single channel comp for most things.

The BAC worked great for the guitar tracks.

I purchased this unit from reading these posts and there are some people here who I have learn to trust their evaluations.

RMC, Tony S., Roundbadge, asagaai...........thank you, one of my better buys this year.

I don't always agree but in this case you guys Rock.

I still think the "BAC" part should mean "Bad Ass Compressor".

Not to diss Brad or anything...

Guess I may have to rethink my resolution that a pair of Anamod 660's would be my first two 500 series compressors! Can you sum up the differences between these two? Is the BAC cleaner, and therefore more versatile, while the 660 is a "special purpose" unit? (just guessing)

I believe the Anamod 660's are an emulation of Fairchild. If that's what you want, then by all means, get it. Because I know Dave and Greg did a great job. But, if you are looking for something different, with a little color, and some "Mojo" - for lack of a better term, then the BAC 500 may be what you are looking for. As always -- it is best to compare them in your own studio -- if and when possible.
