    As reviewed by Ric Brush on 6/27/2009

    Straight-forward controls make this unit easy to set-up and operate, bass rig has never sounded better! p.s. Thanks to GC - they didn't have the item in stock, so special ordered it for me. I had it within a week and got it at a great price too.

  • Rec/Sound Eng.

    As reviewed by QualityAudio01 on 6/20/2007

    One of the best pieces of gear I've used in the studio and live sound. The only draw I can't say is too much money for a single channel comp/limiter.

  • Amazing

    As reviewed by David on 4/21/2008

    This thing is incredible, the knobs are huge and it gives you a real analogue feel. Another thing is that even though it doesn't have attack and release settings, it always seems to give you the perfect sound every time. This thing always sounds great, get it. Only a 4 star because of price.
