Here for the gear

Yes, I can confirm that the SSL SiX channel compressor distorts on bass-heavy signals. It's not even subtle.

I was hoping that I would be able to track bass guitar using the SiX SA channel, with the comp smoothing out the performance. Unfortunately, the results are unusable.

The sound is as if the attack and release are set in such a manner that it is repeatedly opening and closing down based upon the input waveform.

The comp sounds fine on vocals. Sucks on bass guitar. I'm new to the unit, so have not really tried pushing it with any other sources.
