Can a distressor be nice

Looking for a female vox compressor to add in the studio but also a one spacer to take out on the road.
Want to use it for both aggressive and unaggressive duties

That should do the trick. I used one lightly all over the place with the group Dream (4 females) with a low ratio and got great results. Just enough to bring up some of the more timid parts.

Yeah the Distressor can play nice back off the input and toggle off the Dist.buttons.. super easy to tweak.
It's not as "transparent" as say a Trakker but it can be great on the right vocals.

Yes, the Distressor will do the clean nice thing well. Use the lower ratio settings and don't light up more than 3 or 4 gain reduction LED's and you'll be hard pressed to hear it working, although it certainly is. Great compressor, very versatile.
