    Any good suggestions for good comp for hip hop and r&b's drum tracking. i much like SSL comp sound. so i'm not engineer and just producer & track maker. but i always touch it any project.
    in case of low budget project, i have to do recording and tracking drum sound myself. i'm thinking to buy ant good 2-bus good comp.(Alan SmartC2,SSL LOGIC FX G384,XLogic G Series Compressor etc..) also I like and use to DBX160. EL8 is good comp but it was not "the one".
    Somebody knows any good comp of $1500~3000 range.

    The Alan Smart C2 as well as the newer SSL XLogic rack version are both great. I would also add the dbx 160SL, Focusrite Blue 230, API 2500, Manley Vari-Mu are all great smacky and punchy comps.
