How important is gain reduction meter on comp to you?
Maybe a dumb question but it seems that is all I post:
Is a gain reduction meter on a compressor important only to guys like me (who apparently, if you read comments from people here) have poor/damaged hearing? Because I am convinced my next comp must have one and it is limiting my purchase options, particularly when trying to avoid a large rack unit. I think it would also be nice to see on a meter when it is helping "sustain".
Thoughts? Discussed to death somewhere already?
Thanks for reading.

it's nice to have one, but it's not that important to me, especially in pedal form, since I just adjust my compressors by ear and feel.

Yeah I convinced myself today I don't need it after pulling out an old rack mount presonus and listening with my ears. I gotta say the 160 comp model in the Boss GT10B is not too shabby so i think I am over the comp gas!

Zero important on a petal.

I liked the LED on the Maxon that lit when the threshold was crossed but now I'm doing fine with no such indication on the Zoom B3 compressor models. The ears are the final judge.

I find it VERY helpful, maybe I don't have the ear that some others do. But I've used both the MXR and Empress and their metering capabilities are a huge help dialing in what I want.
