What's the purpose of a compressor and will it reallly make that much of a difference in sound?
A compressor will quiet some of the louder notes you play to help equalize the overall volume heard. Sometimes you will pluck a note a bit harder than you had intended and a compressor will help smooth the volume out a bit.
also helps round out harsh highs... i think.
Good answers. I use one to balance slap and fingerstyle levels, and to add tube-like dynamics to a mostly solid-state rig.
