    What I have discovered is shocking, and I am compelled to share it with TB.

    There is a reason why millions of bass players "never use compression". These players, who have been making music for 20/30/40/50 years without ever needing compression, are in reality, suffering a partial memory from their alternate timeline.

    Their history had no convention, no common practice of dynamic compression applied to audio. In their timeline, dynamic compression technology existed, but was only used in sonar and radar applications, and later in the broadcasting of certain High frequency bands. They never used compression because IT DIDN'T EXIST FOR THEM.

    Sometime in early 2012, two timelines, practically identical, but with notable differences, MERGED. Those of us who remember using compression before 2012 experienced a different iteration of the Multiverse, than those who "never used compression". Our timelines have merged, leaving in it's wake, dissent, confusion, and a stubbornness of conviction. We each remember a different "reality".

    I know it's a lot to take in, but it's real. The Mandela Effect is real.

    Alternate timelines can be tragic.

    Reading comprehension please.


    Tossing a red herring at the absurd is sad.

    Wait... Compressor? Effects?!?
    Who uses effects on bass? It's illegal! Call the police! Call the police!

    In my reality this form of arrest is law enforcement's response if they suspect you of using a compressor. dull.gif
