Awesome !

Ordered a 1st unit last few months ago. Delighted by the quality, just ordered a new one to insert them on the BUSS. L.O.V.E the wamth !


Great sonic vibe

This compressor has a great sonic vibe. I like that just running a signal through it changes the character of the source material even if you are not compressing. This compressor excels at slow attack and release speeds. Many compressors make the sound pinched and thin when a slow release is used. This one doesn't seem to do that. It's fantastic at gain reduction levels between 0dB and 5dB. I really enjoy using it on lead vocals. The side chain filter is a great addition as well. I played slap bass through it and rolled off the bass of the side chain detector and was able to nicely tame and round off the sharp transients of the slapping and popping.
