    Set it outside your door. :) Actually, if you read the FAQ linked in my sig you'll learn what each of the functions does, and how they work. That's the only way to find "good settings" on a unit like this, is to understand what each function is actually doing and apply them to your signal according to need.

    LOL! :D

    I used to have one of those. It was many years ago. They are decent little units. I agree with bongo, you need to understand how the compressor works. There are no "Magic settings". It all depends on your setup and preferences.
