An effect to even out my output volume?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Dave44, Apr 21, 2003.

  1. I was wondering if there is a pedal or some sort of hardware that will even out my over all sound output? Like when I play softly during an intro to a tune with slapping or plucking later in the arrangment, I'd like the the volume to remain constant through out the song. With the slapping and plucking my volume varies, I just would like the peaks not be so overly louder than the rest of my mates in the band.

    Yessir, you should look at compressors. There are a lot of them out there, rack-mount, stomp-box, free-standing, cheap, expensive, moderately-priced, whatever.

    I have a Behringer Autocom Pro, which is a pretty cheap rackmount, and it works fine for me.
