Aphex Punch Factory Optical Compressor

  1. I was reading in the latest bass player magazine, and i saw this thihng. It looks sweet. It says it can give you clean boosts, and not all liek..distorted, and the compression is good and doesent kill your tone. has anyone tried one of these?~??? im thinking about getting one.

    I just picked one up in my never ending quest for the perfect (cheap) comressor. I am very happy with it.

    It does not squash your sound. It does define notes very well. It boosts nicely but will distort if you push it too far. It looks like a cartoon nightmare, but that's the worst thing about it so far.
