    What are the specific uses of limiter/enhancer pedals- i understand the use of a limiter in an amp head, but does a pedal limiter affect the sustain of the actual notes kinda likea noise gate does, or what exactly,,,, i've heard that geddy lee of rush uses a limiter to play somgs like Tom Sawyer, i just wanted to know what they are all about,,,
    also how do compressors affect the sound of your playing(i understand they are essential for slap and pluck fanatics)....
