This may be lame question but I'm learning and sorting out some questions. I need to hear why some of you choose to use a digital compressor like the Weiss DS1 over something like the STC-8? Reviews on the DS1 are all wonderful but aside from this... If you use something like the DS1 do you more than not, add something else to help warm things up or is this pretty much all you use? I ask this because I'm thinking more than not, the majority of music being mastered today has got to be welcoming something out side the box? Looking at the back of the unit, it only has AES EBU, what are you using for an interface? What do you use the MIDI for? How often do you need more than 44.1? Last question: I don't imagine it would be suitable for anything other than mastering?
