Pretty nifty product right here. For those that want a compressor, this is the best you'll get without heading into a price range several times this. On a hardware level it's sturdy and secure; everything adjusts as it should and it doesn't look bad either.

Sound wise...if you aren't familiar with compressors you WILL need to spend some time working your way around it. But it does the job nicely. I use it for live applications so my bass amp isn't too 'flabby'; just a little bit of control and some boost, and while not a dramatic difference that difference is pretty useful;. Less uncontrolled oomph, more kick-in-the-face output. My only concern is that attempts to control things even a little too much can make the sound quite flat very quickly (yes I know how compressors work before anyone goes there-some of the higher models can control the sound further without draining the soul of the bass). That said I use a pretty heavy sound, even for a bass, so more standard applications probably won't suffer the same issue so quickly.

Good compressor

Well, DBX claims that they've invented compressors. It is a good product, does not induce noise, the noisegate part is excellent, the compression is somewhat hard to set perfect, partly by being overcomplicated, and partly because the right setting in one particular moment becomes wrong to the next moment if something changes in level in the signal chain. I do not use much the limiter part, because it cuts audibly and cannot set it to be reliable in life situation. I guess this is somewhat similar to all-season tires which actually are ok in all seasons but still worse than a dedicated tire at all times. Too many features which interact with each other. For me it works, and I use it occasionally when I really need it, other times the bypass is engaged and I enjoy the LEDs :D
