    Hi Justin!
    I know you re a real gadget expert especially old gear so I thought I could ask you for help - I came across this interesting piece
    have you used this and what do you think? Infact I was thinking to use it both as a DI for PA and preamp for my amp (via fx return or maybe even input) for live gigs. Ofcourse I would give it a try for recording,but how about gigs?
    Ofcourse, all TBers are more than welcome to chime in as usual ;)
    Thanx guys!!!

    Yeah, I've never had one, but back in the day I had a Yamaha PB-1 that I would have gladly traded for one of those Rolands. Cool sounding compression. If it was good enough for Peter Hook, it's good enough for me. Yeah, why not for gigs? With a Crest CA-9 or a dope power amp you'll be loving it.

    Thanx Justin! I heard it is not silent enough for today's standard. But then,I dont play super big venues.
