I would like to get an external compressor to use while recording. I dont have very much experience with them but I am liking for something that does a good job without a whole lot of bells and whistles. Is it possible to buy one that can degrade the sound signal? Anyone have any suggestions for a compressor and anyone know of any god tutorials or practice places that can teach how to really utilize one? I've gone and found a bunch of stuff about how to use then online but a lot of places seem to give the same information, in looking for something that says do this this and that, hear what you get and then explains why its doing what its doing, that way I can better understand what's going on so I can be more efficient when usinh it instead of turning knobs wondeeing what its going to sound like. Thanks in advance!
