    IMHO: compression ala' sustain works better as a line level effect.

    I use my through the active pickups input, even though I use passive pickups.
    Suggested setting:
    - Level: 7
    - Tone: 5
    - Attack: 3
    - Sustain: 10

    - Level: 7
    - Tone: 10
    - Attack: 5
    - Sustain: 5

    - Level: 7
    - Tone: 5
    - Attack: 10
    - Sustain: 5

    if your amp has an effects loop, put the compressor in there.

    I have the Boss CS-2 and IMO it does not work well on bass at any setting. It loses too much low end. I love it on guitar though.
