I only have 1 David processor at a station and find myself fairly underwhelmed by it. Not to say that it is horrible but I have never been able to make it sound good AND loud. Either is obtainable but not both.

Great sounding presets (if they existed) on my system could sound like total crap on yours. There is often very little correlation of presets between systems. The best thing that I can recommend is to start with one of their presets that you like and make small changes to it being sure to save incrementally before making changes. Don't make big changes, don't make several changes at the same time, and absolutely don't sit and screw with it for hours at the time. Listen to your adjustments casually and critically for a while before making more changes. It can only take a few seconds of frustrated adjustments to wreck a decent sounding setup.

I by no means have "golden ears"... I can only listen critically and adjust processing for about 10 minutes at the time before everything starts to sound like everything else.

Good luck,

I have worked with a couple of them and am in the same position. If you buy budget processing you get budget processing, and should not expect something that can compete with an Orban or an Omnia.
