Kuk Harrell - 4 time Grammy Award Winner. Vocal Producer, Songwriter & Engineer.
"For the last 2 years, ( 2012-2011 ) I've been working with 4 time Grammy Award Winner Kuk Harrell who is today's most in demand Vocal Producer.
Together, we've cut hundreds of records with a who's who list of clients to include: Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Mary J Blige, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson & Lionel Richie.
Out of All these Sessions, I can say with truth and honesty, that each and every one of these vocals passed thru a Cl1B before reaching Pro Tools. I find that the CL1B has the most flexibility, transparency and functionality out of any compressor on the market.
Wrapping up last year (2010), Kuk and I flew out to Stratford, Canada to wrap up the loose ends on Justin''s ''Never Say Never'' blockbuster. Along with a 1081& my Rosetta 200, I also lugged along a CL1B! I never record vocals without it!!
I wanted you to be aware of my love for the CL1B and to share that it''s being used on today's Top40 artists on a daily basis!
We are currently working with Justin Bieber & Rihanna. You better believe those vocals are passing through your compressor!"

"We have two of the Tube-Tech CL1B's here and use them in nearly every session. They are unbeatable on Vocals. I also love them on Acoustic Guitar and Piano. "
Fred Remmert Cedar Creek Recording, Austin Texas
" I've been recording and mixing music here in beautiful "A" town for 25 years now. I've done all kinds of music, and even some post production film soundtrack stuff.
I've seen a lot of changes in equipment and technology.
I have always tried to limit my audio purchases to items that would stand the test of time, as opposed to just buying whatever is newest and coolest.
The tube-tech CL-1 compressor is one of the best examples of that philosophy!
I have had my 2 CL-1B''s since 1998, and I have used them virtually every day since then. They are a very important part of the day to day operations of my studio. I have used them on everything from acoustic instruments to vocals, and even as 2 mix compressors from time to time. I can't imagine doing a session without "

"Just wanted to let you know that I ONLY use the CL1B as my compressor when tracking vocals.
I am just wrapping up his album at the moment which consists of 14 tracks in which feature Lil Wayne, The Game, Mario, Lloyd, Drake, Snoop Dogg, Pharrell, J-Cole, Chris Brown etc.
The only compressor I have used is the CL1B for tracking all of the above artists.
I love the sound in which the CL1B gives me and is a perfect match for that vocal chain.
I also just received a platinum plaque for the songs i produced on U.K.'s Peter Andre "Revelation" album.
I recorded the entire album at Will Smiths Boom Boom Room studio's and again only used the CL1B for every song on the record.
I'm a massive fan of your work"

I would not not do without my Tube Tech CL1B compressor!
I think it is the best all-around "King of compressors" ever made!!.
It always sounds great. "
