BC-1 is a stereo comp (not a dual mono comp), can I use it on mono signals (lead vocals, lead guitar, bass....) for both recording and mixing? . Is it possible?

Yes, the BC1 is a very fine compressor for instruments and you can use it as a mono compressor. On vocals it can even out the levels making them more solid. Same goes for bass guitar, just make sure to disengage the HPF (highpass filter) button otherwise it will not react as much to frequencies below 150Hz.

Due to the transparent nature of the BC1 it will not add a "sound" when compressing, it's more like a fast gain-riding - very useful for controlling the dynamics without adding obvious compression. Perfect for piano, strings, jazz drums etcetera.

Compared to plug-ins the BC1 sounds more vivid and has a deeper and wider stereo panorama.

The only problem is that I only have one BC1 and it's constantly strapped across the mix buss.

Thanks Frenzy.

Up to now my only experience with compressors has been plug-ins, I guess if I want to mix a mono signal, I just have to choose one of the two mono inserts from this stereo comp in my DAW, right?

The TK Audio Strip is now featured in our Clipalator gear test page, both the Baxandall style EQ and compressor.
