anyone tried both of these?
I tried both.
IMO, LMB-3 is not a real compressor.
It's a "real effect peadal" to enhance your sound when you're slapping.
The Keeley doesn't work in the same way.
It gives your sound more attack and prodive this very transparent compression to cut through the mix.
I sold my LMB-3, but I can't turn my Keeley off
LMB-3 still rates as the worst pedal I have ever tried and its way in the head of its competition in terms of how much it sucks ass.
for live use im not really bothered if its sudio quiet, im really looking for a comp that can thicken the low end when i stomp it on. can the keeley do that?
You should take a look at pedals like Aphex bass exciter instead of a compressor...
You could try the Diamond Compressor. Michael does a mod for bass specific use wherin he moves the EQ tilt to a lower axis point and extends the frequency response lower too.
Transparent gets pretty punchy and you can add some bass thickening with the EQ tilt.
I leave mine on most of the time these days.
Yes, if you stomp it to turn it off.
The LMB-3 is not a compressor. It is mainly a limiter, a one trick pony so to speak. I actually found a very nice setting for using as effect for a slap sound. Mine was very quiet unless the enhance was turned way up, and actually quite musical when used sparingly.
yes, i aggree 100%
