    You mean the CL1s. It has great phat tone and it overdrives nice not being very harsh. But using it for Mastering? - Nope. It doesn't have high headroom, it's controls are touchy/fincky, and it tends to pump to easy on program material. These are rare compressors though, and I wish I had more than one of them.

    Drums, Guitar, Bass, Vocals. I often use it in series with another compressor like a 1176 or dbx 160SL.
