    Yes, I have one. Don't know what Bass Player said, but I'll give you my views...

    It's not a fully featured compressor - attack, release, threshold and ratio are all automated, and the only controls are drive and output volume. Drive seems to reduce the threshold and increase the ratio - output seems not to be make up gain but a way of changing overall compression dB. It definitely adds punch, and as long as it's not over used it can be effective live, but I wouldn't let it in my recording chain. More of an effect than a straightforward compressor.

    I dig mine a lot. Very easy to use and very punchy, as the name implies. I run mine into a PreSonus TubePre into an IAmp 350 combo w/ex. cab. Really makes my fretless sing.
    PEACE!!!!!, Johno!
