    My Favorite Compressor

    I really haven't had that much experience with outboard compressors (been using CLA-76, DigiRack comp, and some SSL waves plugins) but I really could see my mixes come alive while using the A Designs Nail Compressor. I A/B'd a session with compression and without compression. What a difference. Just adding the Nail Comp to my tracks - vocals, guitars, bass, drums, keys, etc., just makes it come alive in a way that can't be technically articulated like a math equation. I've used a fair number of compressors mainly 500 series versions this is my first rack comp processor. Parellell compression is particularly exciting but using the wet/dry mix/blend for my mixes. All in all this compressor contains within it, everything you would really even need for compression with an even better style than an SSL style compressor. But I would suggest owning multiple compressors to use on specific instruments and specific sessions. My aim is to get at least two more compressors something totally different. Bottom line on the nail compressor, it has exceeded my expectations and really adds so much to the mix.

    Fantastic Compressor!!!!

    I took a leap of faith and got this and man I am impressed it does its job very very well. The feature set on this leaves you with a unlimited pallet to paint with.It also seems to be one of those boxes where just by running through it adds some depth and width to the image without being over bearing.
