Un compresseur d'anthologie, très transparent qui fonctionne très bien et peut tout faire, autant de la compression légère que de l'écrasement et de la distorsion.
La fabrication cependant est un peu légère, les potentiomètres ne sont pas très bien fixés et n'ont pas tous la même résistance. C'est dommage pour un produit de ce niveau.

Klanglich genial und äusserst vielseitger Kompressor. Ich setzte meine Stereogelinkten Distressoren für Parallelkompression, Vocalaufnahmen und Bässe ein.
Toller Sound und eine ordentliche Portion Punch!
Kaufempfehlung mit 5 Ausrufezeichen !!!!!
