I doubt I'll be buying a helicopter. Apparently, they're expensive. Go figure.
I'm excited to check out the new compressors when I get back.
Awwww don't be sad. LMAO, that's classic!
I mean to be honest, alot of compressors are guilty of this if you think about it. They may not be heavy handed like the GC2020 is however, I wouldn't call a real LA2A or an 1176 transparent. Not busting chops here just saying we definitely accept what other compressors alter in exchange for their action.
One thing the 2020 does is fast release compression rather well, the attack curves are definitely good for general purpose use (think of it like an SM57 of compressors) and it happens to use no CPU har har. Its LIGHTYEARS better than an Alesis 3630 btw. To be honest I've never tried super smash annihilate with the 2020 though. Might be worth investigating.
Uses btw: Vocals, drum buss, bass, electric guitar, kick and snare.
I may actually investigate changing the VCA out and switch over to something like the Dynamite or the THAT 2180 if its compatible.
If it works I would call it: The Chinamite!
