    Hey Kev! I'm just curious, in Australia do the gain reduction meters go up instead of down?? And does the water in the toilet go clockwise instead of counterclockwise? I know you guys already drive on the wrong side of the road. Is Mel Gibson's Australian accent fake? I hear his mother is an American, actually I really can't hear her hear I mean here. I guess it's a good thing I'm doing more video than audio these days??

    Inquisitive people want to know.

  5. To actually answer your question: Yes. They're really transparent. Great for leveling a vocal or something. It's not something you're going to plug in and say "Man, that sounds so much better!", but will help a vocal or instrument stay in its place in a mix much nicer. The RNC is a stereo compressor, but with global settings, so you can't compress 2 seperate channels differently. So, if you're looking for 2 channels, you should probably grab 2 of them. Still well worth the money.

    No, I think he is talking about the knock-off version, the Behrfinger Ultra Tube Very Nice Compressor Pro. <insert Photoshopped pic>

    Now to start with Mel Gibson Australian or American,hmmmmm I'm not sure,but if you asked him I'm sure he'd say god sent him to save us all,hmmmmm I feel so safe. :p .
    Secondly yeah the water in the sink or toilet (we call it a dunny) does go in a reverse way. Also on every channel on a mixer in Aus,one should hit the phase reverse just to make sure our music is in phase with the northern hemisphere.
    Also the reason we drive on the left side is because the kangaroos and emus have been doing it that way for 40,000 years and there were some terrible accidents until our government decided the kangaroos win and we should do as they do.
    Am I making sense,I hope not,hahaha.
    There ya go Remy now I hope that clarifies some things about Australia. :D
    It is a strange place. !7 hours ahead 30 years behind.

    Just outta interest are the RNC's any good for tracking guitars,a friend who I do alot of work with needs a comp,as he does most tracking at his place and then mix at my place,his levels are quite wildly varied.I've been trying to convince him to get a comp for tracking,so what do say,are they any good for tracking guitars. As I've never used one and I'm not gonna lend him my Al Smart c2 or my Pendulum es8.
    Thanks

    Will thank you guys! I now feel much better. And I think it's time for me to go down..... Under...... Not Australia, not New Zealand. The covers..... As it is bedtime and I'm going to play with my kitty! And don't read too deeply into that, she's an 18-year-old Calico, thankfully she is of legal age.

    I'm sorry, I once tried a symetrics but didn't like it and I've had no further experience with them.
