More than just an affordable compressor
This isn't just a good comp for the price, it's a good comp period. I own several more expensive compressors icluding a real 1176. This is every bit as usable and vibey. depending on how you gian stage it, it can be pretty clean and transparant, or just a complete over the top crush fest. Build quality is fantastic, and all the switches and knobs feel very solid. A soon as I have the money, I'm going to purchase more for mixing.
