... But here it is. Hopefully it's the compression learning curve taking effect... ha. Got the unit new from a local shop yesterday. The unit seems to be working well, lights up when plugged in and I can see the change in tone when I toy around with the output, ratio and input knobs, but I can't feel anything different when I move the attack and release knobs around. IZZAT normal ? Or is it supposed to be that way ? Also, gotta thumb the strings fairly strongs to get the meter to light up, so that's telling me I've got a light touch... right ? Current settings: ratio 4:1. attack 8:30, release 3:30, input 2 oc and output 11:30. Probably important to know that my previous comp was a LMB-3, that I used for the last 4-5 years. I havent' tried it with my amp yet, only with headphones through a Yamaha StagePass 500 console.
