UGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!! :twisted: I just have to vent a bit here. Why in the Hell are manufacturers making compressors that have no capability of adjusting attack and release times. For that matter, I've seen some where you can't even adjust threshold. Some simply have a knob that say "compression." You turn it to the right for more and you turn it to the left for less! Okay, so a few of the classics did this and it worked. It didn't work BECAUSE of this, it worked IN SPITE of this! Compression can be a beautiful thing that makes a mix gel. However, it has to be played like an instrument to make it sound right. You can't simply tweak knobs like your first girlfriends nipples and expect to get stuff to sound good. In the wrong hands, compression is an evil, evil thing that destroys mixes and takes the life out of a piece. Why then, are we content to allow the manufacturers to "play our instrument for us?" Venting over. Thanks!
