Hi I just recently aquired one of these 2 channel compressor/ expanders. And i was wondering if It could be used on professional vocals? If not what would this be good on? It will be paired with a ssl preamp and a new vocal mic soon ( any suggestions there?).. It is mainly for rock melodic male vocals thanks. :D
These were common and fairly popular in the late 70's early 80's. They are useable. Not really special from what I remember but back then there wasn't a lot of other choices either.
we've been using ours on drums (toms and kick) with good results. the expander is a nice feature. haven't tried it on vocals though.
I have one, I find it a fairly agressive and fast compressor. Great for Big Spanking.
I picked it up for $50 from a radio station.
I've just brought one home to try out.. The 20uS attack setting is fun.
