What is your overall opinion of this product?
My five-star rating takes into account the very low cost of this analog compressor. I'd been using Logic's built-in software compressors for years, and while they're great, I was wondering what a difference an outboard analog compressor would make.
The difference is very noticeable. I use this compressor on vocals, acoustic guitar, and electric bass direct. It's cheesy to say, but yes, it does WARM UP the tone. There's a very pleasant roundness to sounds running through this compressor.
It's so much easier to use than software compressors, and while it can't really do extremes, chances are you're not creating music which requires analog gear if you're looking for extremes.
