    I have a rane dc-24 and some questions about using it with my Kern IP-777/QSC 2402 rig.

    Where is it in your signal chain? If post-pre, are you using the line-out XLR?

    What are some of your popular settings? I assume you are using it in combine/crossover mode, but what thresholds/ratios do you like?

    Do you notice any coloration or reduction in signal level when the dc-24 is configured as a straight wire?

    How do you bypass it when you don't need any compression?

    Thanks!

    It finally dawned on me that the reason my compressor has been baffling me is that I was using it between pre and power amps, so that the amount of compression is dependent on the amount of gain I've dialed in on the pre. Duh. Now its in my pre's effects loop. Much more understandable behavior.
