    I have a carvin r600 series 3 head. Its gotta built in compressor, that dosent make a whole lot of sense.

    I've never used compression before, but im pretty sure i know what is is. There are 2 controls for it on the amp. One knob at 1, it says compressor, and at 10 it says limiter. On the other knob, one says threshold, and 10 says max. (i'll have to double check those, but im pretty sure thats what it is) It also has a noise gate, which i dont think is part of the compressor.

    How do i add compression to my signal with those controls, and also how do i turn it off?
