    So, I just won an auction on this compressor, and was wondering if this would work better directly in my effects return or as a stomp box in line through my SWR Workingman 12's pre-amp.

    I'm working with a Sansamp in my effects return right now, really cuts down on the hiss that the BDDI generates.

    Since a compressor will make noise and hiss louder, I'd think that you'd want to put it between your instrument and the amp...

    generally, compressors are ran inline. you want the entire signal running through the compressor.

    the black fingers are great. i use mine on bass and guitar for recording.

    Ah ha!

    That's all I needed to know, that last part, the "run everything into your compressor" part.


    And yeah, I heard about the double-tube loveliness of the black finger and fell in lust.

    Or GAS.
