    hello,

    i'm working with synthetic basslines and kick drum making techno music.

    i have used to work with plugins to compress the bassline and kick but i would like to invest a money in some good sounding compressor (limiter) and make my basslines and kicks sounding better....i mean analog and punchy.

    coud u recommend some gear, maybe not dedicated for my needs but something what will fits good.

    thnx

    j

    Good EQ'ing is of paramount importance in that particular genre [techno/industrial/EBM] of music moreso than perhaps in any other.

    My suggestion is to first invest in a quality outboard parametric EQ (nothing wrong with high quality software ones though).... and then after that, you can worry about sinking your money into a good quality compressor.

    You might also check out the focusrite compounder. It has a bass expander that can add a lot of punch.
