I primarily use this for recording fretless bass as I love the attack on each note that comes with heavy compression. It's worked out really well for me. Behringer pedals may not be as robust as some of the more expensive competitors and it may not stand up to studio recording standards, but for home recording it's a great pedal for the price. No unwanted hiss that I can detect. I haven't used it for vocal recording, which is maybe where perfect fidelity matters most, but for bass I find this pedal very useful.
