Not this again..
The channel(s) do if you drive the output in the red,
the compressor does, not sure about the standalone eq i think that one doesn't.
But the wrong part here is that the analog button is not responsible
for the saturation, it's only there to switch the noise on or off.
The sat depends whether or not you drive the channel output
in the red or not, harmonic content is always there in the bus compressor.
