I play in a rock band and need a compressor to even out my dynamics and the MXR M87 has been great. I equally enjoyed the EBS Multicomp.
I'm looking for a compressor that makes my sound always present and full, but I'm afraid of losing dynamics. I need a little more sustain on long notes.
Everybody is voting and telling me about the mxr so I think I better go with the MXR.
