    Hi all...

    Snagged an Akai Hexacomp cheap used. Looks like a few of you guys on the forum have some based on my search. Anyone post their settings? I'm kind of new to bass, and perhaps a variable-frequency compressor is a bit much to start out, as I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by it.

    So... how do you use yours? What are your settings and for what style?

    thanks in advance!!!

    I really like mine. The sliders are very powerful, so they can be overwhelming. You don't have to move them much. Start w/ a flat setting and gently boost and cut until you find something you like. Mine looks roughly like / / I play rock and pop. The level knobs are responsive too. Listen carefully for noise and set them to minimize it.
