Somebody must have been super fast on the draw. I think I set a PM 10 minutes after he posted it in the classifieds. I'd like to add it to my compressor test thread. There's summer pretty strong contenders.
I'll have some more up next Friday!
@Azure Skies Great. Would you tell me more about the attack and release settings? It concerns me that there is no control over these settings with the Apex. I definitely prefer a slow attack to let some transients through on the initial string pick and don't care for super squashy long sustain. So how does the Apex react to attack and release?
Somehow the Keeley Bassist is pretty good at "understanding" what type of attack and release to associate with what type of playing style. Is Apex baking in some sort of magic?
Yes, it’s all magic
Wait. There are pedals in this thread? I apparently missed something.
I just wanted to let everyone know that Josh has done some superb service for me.
My Power Stage had a little issue appear (its been used constantly since purchase so its to be expected..!) & the way it has been handled & dealt with has been nothing but a pleasure.
Anyone on the fence about a Broughton unit? Do it.. the after-care is as good as the quality of the pedals.
Thank you Josh!
Aren't you supposed to be on vacation?
Hmmm, do you have a Broughctave to trade maybe??
Pretty close to choosing which power supply I'll be going with... The final piece coming besides the Preamp is a Rolls PM55P. Want to check the current draw on all the pedals before I choose which PS. Then it'll be time to make the board all my Broughton's will be ruling from!
I don't. But I have a Seymour Duncan Studio Bass or FEA OPTI-FET I could put up. Probably blasphemous in a Broughton thread though huh? I've got a thread going where I'm testing compressors and reporting findings. So far I've been through a Cali76 CB, Keeley Bassist, Smoothie Optical, FEA OPTI-FET, and Seymour Duncan Studio Bass. EBS Multicomp on the way. Would love for the Broughten Apex to be in the mix.
These foreign currencies won't get you very far here.
Hmm. Didn't figure as much.
"Magic's just science that we don't understand yet."
That's why they say that the Hooble Space Telescope is so magical
Link to your thread? I'd like to read that.
The only one I've used from that list is the EBS, but I liked it. Simple to use, but there's a couple of good sounding settings in there especially when you start playing around with the mode switch. You'll find Multiband (MB) mode to be the cleanest, and TubeSim to be a little fatter.
That was the first compressor pedal I ever bought, actually. I don't particularly miss it, but I didn't hate it either.
@NKBassman Here's the thread: Testing compressors: Cali76 CB, Smoothie, Keeley Bassist, FEA Optifet, Seymour Duncan Studio Bassist
I used an EBS years ago and agree that there was something special in the TubeSim mode especially. I've got another EBS on the way to add to the test.
Would somebody who is using the Apex shed some light on the attack and release feel? It concerns me that there is no control over these settings with the Apex. I definitely prefer a slow attack to let some transients through on the initial string pick and don't care for super squashy long sustain. So how does the Apex react to attack and release?
