Can I vomit, or delete this thread? Mr. Coldsnow, I humbly submit that you've either spent a tad too much time hanging 'round the old 'Guitar-Mart', or read one too many magazine articles.
None of the compressors you've mentioned will make anything "warmer". Fuzzier perhaps, but not "warmer". If I may be so bold...wait an extra month until you can put $1,250 together and get an Empirical Labs EL-8 "distressor"...or if you want to get really slick, scrape up $1,375 and get one with the "Brit Mod" added.
Seriously, it's a unit you will use for your entire career as opposed to the others which you may outgrow [or in the case of the LA-4...will most likely require maintenance] in a year or two.
The Meek 2.2 and the Art things are disposable garbage that won't make things warmer [with the possible exception of the weasel at the Guitar-Mart's girlfriend...because he'll buy her something nice with the commission money he's taken off of saps that get shit like the "ART" stuff...and will get a serious 'cum guzzling concubine' style blowjob due to the gift to the GF].
