Hi All, I was just reading some old posts that dealt with basically "taking up more space as a guitarist solos" and certain people were suggesting overdrive and certain people were suggesting compression. I can understand why overdrive would fill up the sound, but why would anyone suggest compression? I have a Demeter Opto Compulator and I couldn't even tell it was working until one day I really sat down and worked on my tone, and then I could tell that it just tightens up my sound a little bit, but it doesn't add anything to "fill in space"? "A compressor adding things" just doesn't seem like a phrase that makes sense. Also, if I turn the compression up past 1oclock or so, starting with my E-string, everything starts to get really squashed, like it no longer sounds at all like it should, but very muffled? Do people actually play like this to "fill up space"?
