Remember folks , we are SUPPOSED to sound like ducks on SSB, if we want  
fidelity, use FM.. My thought is a good , easy to listen to signal, that  is  
intelligible beats the heck out of an over modulated phony bass  enhanced 
that sounds like you have the microphone in the bottom of a 3  pound coffee can.
I try to put out a good sounding signal, ( Orion / TT studio one ) and I  use 
an hm 10 on the 746, and an mc-80 on the ts2000, but a good signal is ok,  
please don't over process it to death .  We all have a distinct voice, and  
natural in nice..not too much processor, not too much microphone gain.. just  
tickle the ALC..
Just my opinion , YMMV  tom N6AJR

You can judge your audio much better if you're  not talking while you're
listening.  That's why it should be recorded  either by you or by another
station and then played back.
