Snap, Crack, Attack!
Want your drums to compete with a wall of guitars? Sweetwater has your secret weapon! The Valley People dyna-mite 500 Series compressor is the descendent of one of the most delightfully agressive-sounding compressors ever made. It's particularly effective on snare and kick drums, but it's also great on the rest of the kit, as well as guitars, bass, and whatever else you want to cut through a thick mix. With lightning-fast 6-microsecond response, dyna-mite is also a spectacularly effective as a peak limiter, and its auto-release circuit makes it an exceptional expander and gate.
