    if your looking for the BOSS-LMB3 sound, why not try a BOSS-LMB3?

    If its the sound you want why try more expensive pedals to get what your lookin for? dont worry whats on your board and who makes it, just cause its boss dont knock it.
     
  3. Given a limiter is an extreme form of compressor, a mildly set compressor will never sound like a limiter.

    so the analogman will sound more subtle your saying?
     
  5. having never tried either of those units I can only bass (ha ha) my opinion on theory...

    so yes, I'd say any compressor set mildly will be more subtle than a limiter.

    Stop comparing LMB-3 with classic compressors.
    It sounds very different.
    The name says all : Bass limiter enhancer.
    It enhances your sound with brightness (good for slap) and it acts like a limiter, not a compressor!
    Can you get a chorus sound with a phase shifter pedal?
    If you like the sound of this pedal, just keep it!
    If you think you need a compressor too, get one!
    IMO you should try a compressor then you will hear the difference (MXR dynacomp, Aphex Punch Factory,...) and get an idea on how sound analogman/keeley compressors.
