    Just got a Bass Amplug2 to replace the previous one that fell apart on me, just noticed that on the box it states that it has boost and compression , as far I was aware the Amplug just had Vol/tone and the dial that adjusts the tempo and volume of the built in drum tempos, where is this boost and compression ?

    Isn't that just marketingese for the Gain knob?

    The amplug2's do different things depending on the model. The guitar ones offer a mid boost in some modes for example. The bass has low, medium, and higher gain. Turn the unit on, each time you press the button, the led changes from green to orange and red depending on the mode. When it is pushed with the high gain, prehaps that's when it compresses.

    As Sid said, marketing
