Distressingly Good

26.02.2015
Everyone knows of the famous Distressor and this compressor does not disappoint. A great compressor for drums (especially snares), vocals and bass. Also pretty affordable for an industry standard compressor compared to others that can be found along side it in professional studios.

An absolute must for your studio especially if you're looking for a reasonably cheap way to build up your professional outboard selection.

A classic!

Homemadetom, 17.07.2014
You can't go wrong with the Distressor!
Versatile, you can gently compress or smash your tracks and it will always sound good.
Got so many features that make it unique. You can easily emulate the sound of some of the most famous classic compressors just tweaking a few settings. A must for every studio owner!
