    Anyone use this for bass guitar compression. I just snagged one cheap and was going to use it in my rack. I have never used a compressor before? It is anolog and stereo. Should I, can I
    link the two units to use as one. Recommended settings ETC??

    I'm not familiar w/ that unit, but it just sounds like a regular rack comp. Go ahead and try it out, you won't hurt anything. Yes you can link the 2 sides, set the first lower than the second.

    Thanks JD,
    I was hopeing to find someone who owns one, and even better is useing it for bass so I could get some recommended settings. The unit seems to be a pretty decent compressor. It has all the bells and whistles, but I really don't know how well it will work for bass, relativly speaking, as I have never owned one before. I have it hooked up and have been fooling with it a bit. I will try it with the band at practice on Friday.
