Great, clean sounding compressor that retains your instruments tone
Fred739, 09.04.2018
This compressor has it all and does what you need it to do with pristine sound clarity. I use it for both guitar and bass. I find that it retains the natural sound of your instrument. You can have subtle compression to that obvious choking compression and everything in between. It can take some time to get the knobs set up to the right combination for your instrument but once you get a feel for how they respond, I find I just leave the attack and release at the same setting, then just adjust the input and output knobs if I change instrument. As there are only 3 compression ratio settings: 2, 4, 10; the mix knob is great, as you can blend in a bit of the input signal, if say for instance you have compression at 4 and you think it's slightly over compressing. The dual LEDs are great to give an indication of what's going on with both input level and actual compression taking place; great if you don't 100% trust your ears and want some visual feedback.
