So I've got an idea that I don't have the expertise for: there seems to be a real desire for a guide to compressors. The same questions come up again and again, and it seems to be an effect type/tool that many people swear by but also eludes many others (myself included to some degree). How comprehensive the guide gets would be up to the contributors, but I was thinking a sticky made by a few authors would be best, where the main types of compressors are gone over and defined (tube, optical, FET, VCA) in a relatively straightforward way that would make sense as an introduction to the type, with pros and cons and why some people prefer using one over others. For instance: VCA word words words. words words words words. words. words words words. For: some people with [preferences] Not For: other people with [different preferences] Then, a short-ish breakdown of popular choices by size, price range, type, transparency, etc. This could also come with short notes (say a sentence each) on different models. Maybe just for very notable ones, maybe not. For instance: Solid Mini Optical Compressors in the $150-200 range This one by A Company Another by Some Other Company Can't Forget The Old Favorite by Yet Another Company What do you think?
