http://www.ovnilab.com/reviews/mxrbass.shtml I just want to understand why comparing this as not as fat and warm is a bad thing. Isn't it a good quality that it is not coloring the sound? "So overall, is it as good? No." But yes I see it is said to be very good. Just trying to understand. There are so many other things to color your sound, I'd figure the compressor not doing so would be a very good thing. I played one last night and my problem is that I can't hear much of a difference on or off or with all the various settings. I hear a little difference. I see the difference in the LEDs. I would probably notice a big difference in recording with it not clipping when doing fast stuff on the high strings then coming back to the E string. Just wanted some thoughts.
