smooth compression for a fair price

By Kyle Gregory

from Binghamton, NY

Comments about BBE MaxCom Dual-Channel Compressor:

i got this compressor about a month or so ago to use for a record and to use in my bass rig and i'm pretty happy with my purchase. i don't really use the sonic maximizer on it but it's something i will play with in the future, but the compression on here is really smooth. i have a DBX 166XL that's a bit harsh, i never got a sound that i love out of it so i'm glad i got this one because it's pretty clean. on the recording i did i used it on kick and snare, guitar, and bass. the recording was of a very heavy grind-core band and this unit did a great job on the kick, guitar, and bass, very clean sounding even with a lot of distortion!

Best deal of all Sonic Maximizers

By Andrew

from Glen Burnie, MD

Comments about BBE MaxCom Dual-Channel Compressor:

You get 2 maximizers, balanced OR unbalanced I/O and 2 compressors for less than any other BBE product with even 1 of the same functions. Its insane. The SM makes a night and day difference. I use it in my live guitar rig in stereo and when recording vocals and especially bass. This processor is powerful. DO NOT overuse its effect, but with just a dab it brings songs and instruments to new life. Its built like a tank. My only worry might be bumping and breaking a knob, but thats a stretch. Its not a 'lazy EQ'. its not an EQ at all. I WISH I could have gotten this effect with my equalizer. its a new technology. Its the sound of the future. Get a SM, and if possible, the Maxcom is by far the best deal for almost every situation.

A good unit but a bit expensive compared to others

By Fuzzball

from Ida, MI

Comments about BBE MaxCom Dual-Channel Compressor:

This unit is good for recording and live use. The Maxcom adds punch while using subtle compression. The unit does not color the sound since it provides clear transparent compression. The unit is very easy to use for live applications and studio use. The Maxcom does a good job and it is built well the only problem I have with it is that it does not seem to be any better than several other units on the market that can be purchased at a lower price.
