Hi All I've been doing quite a bit of reading on compressors since another post on a different subject got my attention. What I'm trying to accomplish if I can is to give my live sound more HEFT to the notes. Kind of the description used when referring to say a DB750/751 which I've owned and familiar with that feel. Currently my rig is Demeter VTBP-M-800D; which I like very much; is quite different in most respects than the big Aggie. Cabs: One or Two Bergantino NV115's. (also one HD112). Basses: Either a Sadowsky NYC UV Jazz or a Birdsong C-Bass with a hot Dimarzio pup. I also have a Quilter BB800. Not sure if the Quilter circuit would like a compressor?? Or the Demeter either. So far I'm seeing some units/pedals etc that are appealing to me at different price points which is not a deal maker or breaker for me. I just want to make sure I can utilize a compressor in the live mix. I have no effects but may warm up to some in the future. I don't know much about compression even though I've read some really great explanations and pretty much understand the uses. Further I'm not doing any studio work where I realize a compressor would be most useful or even required. I've seen some with multi band compression.. ? Looking at Origin Effects Cali76 Deluxe (Best in class? possibly way overkill for me?) Aguilar TLC MXR M87 TC Electronics SpectraComp (this one is really simple to use.. one knob) I don't know if the Demeter compressors are 'geared' more to guitar than bass. But James makes great gear for sure. Hey Thanks very much in advance if you care to comment.
