I recently purchased a Humphrey Audio modded CS-3 for bass. Pedal is to be used for live performance only. I haven't had much time to play around with it, but so far the settings that seem to work best for me are Tone at 3:00, Attack at 10:00-10:30, Sustain at 9:00, and Level at unity gain (between 12:00-1:00). The settings I seem to like appear that this pedal is set more as a limiter than as a compressor. I'm starting to wonder if I would be better off just getting a stock LMB-3 for half the cost. The modded CS-3 is quiet, and sounds very good. I really don't hear any artifacts. It also "seems" like having the ability to adjust the attack would be a plus. I can't help but wonder, now, that for my use, and how I've ended up setting the CS-3, that I would be just as well off with a stock LMB-3 for half the price of this modded pedal. I've never played a LMB-3. If the modded Humphrey does what the LMB-3 does, and is quieter, more high-fi, cleaner...etc... I'll just be content and call it day. If on the other hand, the LMB-3 sounds just as good, does the setting as above, and only lacks in the ability of higher compression of the modded CS-3, then it may be more prudent to return this pedal and go the LMB-3 route. Thoughts or suggestions from those that have traveled this road?
