Hey there, I recently bought a BOSS ME50B - there is a compressor on the pedal and this is the first time I've ever noticed my bass sounding top notch in a band situation. There are five settings: 1. NATURAL 2. LIMITER 3. 160D SOFT 4. 160D HARD 5. D-COMP I currently use the 'NATURAL' compressor as it so far has sounded good with my group (House/Funk), but I have no idea what the compressor is actually doing, can anyone help? Also, if there are any ME50B users out there, do you know what each compressor on the pedal actually does to your sound. I'm always getting folk saying things like, "...this increases the sound by 10dB" etc, but that's not really meaning much to me... I need someone to be saying something more like, "This compressor will be good for a hard slap sound, and by altering the threshold will alter..." etc, as this is a much more practical and musical understanding. The technical terms will mean nothing to me until I understand what they can actually do... So if anyone can help I would really appreciate it, Piece.
