Weak and unworthy

By L. Platanazo

from Portland OR

This is essentially an update of their old BlueMax. It features sixteen presets which are not user-adjustable. In each preset, if you give it the intended type of input, it actually sounds quite good. Nice big lows, bright clear highs, very low noise, minimal artifacts. When using it with bass guitar, only the bass preset was usable--all of the other settings were lousy on bass, as they distorted in a buzzy unpleasant way. Some of the settings only buzzed or clicked a little, but some of them sounded like a bumblebee. So compared to the BlueMax, the Comp16 has much better highs and much lower noise, but it has only one non-adjustable "good" setting for bass, while the BlueMax had a lot more versatility. The Comp16 has an illuminated VU meter, which looks really cool but is functionally useless. It honestly serves no real function. If you happen to like any one setting this thing has, or just want a rackable unit that's as simple-to-use as possible, this might be an OK choice. A warning, though: the preset-selection knob (rotary encoder) on this one has just started failing for no apparent reason. I can't recommend it if the digital parts are going to fail like that.
