  1. Anyone have one of these, and how does it do? I've read great reviews at HarmonyCentral, but we all know you can't believe everything you read.

    -they are one of the more successful Behringer products. I have one, used correctly it works great! You should do a search here and in effects, there's probably a lot of info on them.
     
  3. Hello (again) Blisshead.

    Wondered whether you could expand on your comments about using it correctly. Is that piece difficult to use, or something? (I'll check Effects, too).

    Thanks.

    John.

    Actually, I was being somewhat sarcastic. I've run into people proudly sporting an Alesis or a low end dbx, (with it set up so that it sounds like an old man with emphysema) who felt the need to inform me that the composer I have is crap. the composer is not any more difficult than any other compressor in it's class. I think I've run across folks who can make ANY compressor sound bad.

    I've been using a MDX 2200 for a couple years now.

    Couldn't be happier.

    No worries.

    Works great with Bass.

    I have had a composer pro since'98. Not one problem. It is very road worthy and fairly versatile. Mine has survived several years of national touring.

    It is not as nice as some of the top-end stuff, but the quality to price ratio is among the best I have ever come across. I think I purchased mine new for under $200.


    Maybe an engineer would disagree with me on it's sound quality, but for my needs, it worked out fine.
