    drive sounds great, very musical on everything, versatile yet easy to use,
    different from my other compressors great purchase !

  3. Nathan Shores

    Great little compressor, a lot more flexible than I expected. It’s worth a lot more than they are selling it for.

  4. Jamie

    Very nice, smooth compression. The character of sound is different than other compressors. I must agree that at the price point you get a lot of bang for your buck! Very happy to have picked this one up.

    This is the one and only compressor capable of bringing out the musicality in every genre. Great work! It seems that there is always one preset that realy supports the groove.
    If I had to choose one compressor, it would definitelly be this one.

    Great utility compressor, sounds good on everything & if you toy around with it you will be gifted with pleasant surprises.

    Nice warm and rounding compressor. Worked really nicely on an overly harsh acoustic guitar/vocal track. I like the random button too!
