They're really great.

On the 2 buss that really fatten it all up and glue the track together.

Also try them on the kick and snare.

Y a gotta try fast recovery times to make it pump.

It's not as versatile as a distressor but much fatter.

If i had the bucks I'd take 4.

Good luck.

If its the 2254A/E Brent Averill I have one.

I don't use it on the mixbuss though. Mainly on thin lead vocals that need some weight(especially pop sopranos) and on strings(when you want that rock and roll, mellotron sound).

It is a very colored compressor, the word that comes to mind is "chocolate".

It is not as versatile as a 32264a or a mixbuss piece like a 33609.

It either works or its too much.
