    Keep Enhance at 0 and you'll be OK.

    Level @ 12 o'clock.
    Enhance @ 7 o'clock (off)
    Ratio @ 9 to 11 o'clock
    Threshold @ 12 o'clock

    Works great for evening out the sound coming from my EB MM stingray 5 (running flat with a touch of bass boost) into my Markbass 102P combo (also running flat).

    Do you play with a pick? Then try this:
    Level - set to taste as per your needs
    Enhance - off
    Ratio - maxed
    Threshold - from 10 to 11 o'clock

    The LMB-3 then becomes a true limiter, which means that you can slam those strings with a pick all you want and it'll keep your volume at an even keel, and you won't get obnoxiously loud.

    I found the Enhance too noisy to my taste, so I turn it off. I´ve played choosing a low Ratio of 2:1. It means setting close to 9 o´clock to my ears, and the Threshold between 12 and 1 o´clock.
    I used the Level for compensate the volume when pedal is "in" and "out".
