Those comps are the bomb!
The big trick on those units is the dc adjust that switches it from comp to limit.
It takes a minute or two to get the rhythm if dialing it in with input, dc adjust and threshold.
But once you do it is pure fat sonic nirvana
I'm currently using one on a drum sub mix. Love it!!!!

hi davido, wow that´s great - a wonderful compressor!
what c.Judd said - use the DC knob and check it out. this knob makes the mercury unit more variable and powerful.
from nice lady to angry hulk - lot´s of choices. enjoy!
