Hello, i know there's been a lot of talk in regards to compressors recently, and i've had a search but nothing seems relavant to this query. I have just got an ashdown abm500, which seems like a pretty sweet amp, but it does not have a compressor or limiter, whilst i'm aware that i can monitor the input via the VU meter, am i correct in thinking that i could still clip and damage the speakers via the output? I take it this would mean i would need to add a compressor/limiter after the input stage? lastly, is there a way that i could do this with a simple pedal? i took a look at rackmounts (behringer etc) and there's no way i could put up with all those parameters (i got the ashdown due to its simplicity!). any ideas/recommendations?
