    I wish I knew enough about compressors to get this joke. Still don't have my 1st one yet.

    Don't feel bad. I started looking up what item listed is actually supposed to do. The images really have little to do with anything. The whole thing might be a drug induced attempt at humor.

    That, too, is flange, at a slower rate.

  16. You're not missing anything. I mean I have one and use it and it's cool and I like it but it's not absolutely necessary. You will know when it's time.

    Compressor and limiter should be reversed. Compressor makes it harder to go higher. Limiter is a hard ceiling
