    Hey Guys,

    Do any of you have experience with tech 21 bass compactor? If so, how does it work? Does it stack up well like their other products? Any input would be greatly appreciated THANKS!

    I tried one recentley. It is the noisiest compressor I've ever heard.

    Yea, I had heared alot of good things about it as well. I think my problem with it was that I really compress my signal heavily. I could'nt get the sound i wanted out of it without getting a lot of
    hissing and churning. As for it being comparable to a high-end rack compressor, I don't think so. I own a Phat boy.before the phat boy, I used a Joe meek.
    The tech 21 does not compare.

    I tried it, didn't like it. Way too noisy. I took it back to GC. I really like my SABDDI, though.
