It was the one in readers ads, it is absolutely spotless like brand new. It sounds
sublime. Pass through with no GR gives a slight deep bass enhancement and a gentle 3D mix
widening effect with a silky smooth presence like a 1-2dB fine quality high shelf at 4kHz.
It will not be right for everything but it is a nice complement to the DCL-200. Gain
reduction is smooth and rounded as well even on faster settings. This is also a bit faster
with a x 2 option on the attack and release settings which is great for a valve compressor
as they tend to be on the slow side. This is really just a first impression as I am sure
you know it takes a while to get into a bit of new gear.
It's funny I use my
compressors more like EQ's tbh, I think compression is somewhat "over egged" in the realm
of mastering, on occasion you are trying to get some extra punch but in the main it's the
euphonic tone of a circuit you are after. Looking forwards to getting stuck in this week.
Just what I wanted to add even more value to the service really.
