Re: Re: Re: that 10:1 ratio on the distressor, what should one use it for?

Personally, I used the Distressor 6:1 a whole lot ,with the attack 4 - 6, and the release on 5 ish. It should be hard to mess up too much, unless you start putting 14 - 26 dB of compression on during tracking.

I use that setting a lot myself, love it on clean guitars and bass... may try it on vocals sometime soon, although I still reach for Opto mode or my Manley ELOP during vocal tracking most of the time, i'm convinced it's pretty much impossible to screw anything up with that box. On the flip side, you can't really mangle anything either... can't win 'em all!
