I used to have an AT2020 back then, then I bought an AT2035, then I bought an AT4040. Over the years, I have changed my workflow and of course, learned a lot in mixing. Now, the ease of use is a lot more important to me than it was back then. I guess I was new to recording and enjoyed putting stuff together. BUT, the main thing about the 2020USB+ to me is the sound quality. It is STEALING for this price. You just get the raw signal, cut a little low end, compress it, and you have extraordinary vocal quality right there. And what I experienced, that the sound is very responsive to digital EQs. I tried Waves REQ, VEQ, SSL EQ on it and I also have an UAD-1 with Neve and a few others. The sound of the 2020USB+ responds differently to all, which means it record a very detailed, rich signal.
