Compressor

Post by Mark Williams » Mon Jan 07, 2019 5:46 pm

I have 1u space left on my 19" rack, now do I go for a £200 or under hardware compressor, or just stick with the ITB Waves Compressors I have access too, namely the Waves Audio SSL G Master Buss, CLA-2A & DBX 160 and Softube's Drawmer S73.

£200 is a maximum if I decide a hardware compressor is a go.

Wow quik update, I just bought a FMR RNC for less than £150 brand new with free delivery here in UK :)

All setup, and its a good compressor, very transparent, doesnt add any colour to the sound, very easy to use and get a nice setup, the really nice mode is great too. :)

very cool. i'm glad you like it.

i've noodled the idea of a hardware compressor for years, but the ROI seemed to be somewhat prohibitive. the price of this unit peaked my interest. after reading the reviews, not to mention how long they've been producing this unit, it seems like it's worth some serious consideration.

i hope you make some great music with it. thanks for following up!
