Amtec model 099

Hey everybody,
Im looking for any first hand experience on the new compressor from Amptec , the model 099.
I saw the drum demo they put up wich was impressive, and got me very curious on how it would sound /perform other sources like vocals (and perhaps bass with the new timeconstant settings)
Anybody?

Congrats Dad!

Happy to help out,
Good point about the expanded Timing Constants!

Positions 1-6 are the same as in the Fairchild 660/670
Position F is a faster release of the preset "1"
Position P is quite similar to the fastest setting on the EMI-TG limiter
Position S is a slow attack setting
Positions E and D has medium attack times and medium-fast release times



This makes the 099 so versatile!

Not even mentioning its BOLD sound!
