Distressingly Good

Everyone knows of the famous Distressor and this compressor does not disappoint. A great compressor for drums (especially snares), vocals and bass. Also pretty affordable for an industry standard compressor compared to others that can be found along side it in professional studios.

An absolute must for your studio especially if you're looking for a reasonably cheap way to build up your professional outboard selection.

A classic!

You can't go wrong with the Distressor!
Versatile, you can gently compress or smash your tracks and it will always sound good.
Got so many features that make it unique. You can easily emulate the sound of some of the most famous classic compressors just tweaking a few settings. A must for every studio owner!

Fantastic, I use it for tracking and does very clean through to grunge and is great for imparting analogue character from subtle to thick. Very versatile numerous options for side chain and chain.

The knees are great 2:1 is slow and gentle, great for invisible compressing. 6:1 is good at grabbing the transient without crushing which 20:1 and nuke do well. The opto 10:1 is different circuit topography and is great for smoother ala La 3/4 compression.

There is a reason this item is called a modern classic.

Espectacular

Imposible equivocarse con este aparato. Es un gran compresor, de cualquier forma que coloques los controles consigues sonidos muy buenos e interesantes... La emulación de equipos analógicos clasicos está muy conseguida, y además, aporta ciertos elementos como los "audio modes", donde podemos añadir cierta distorsión emulando compresores a válvulas o simulando la clasica cinta. HPF, buenos controles milimetrados para evitar errores, con buena construcción y manejo, se ve un compresor todo en uno muy conseguido y MUY versátil... Además, suena al nivel de compresores muchisimo más caros y menos versátiles, una gran inversión, la verdad.

Ah, última cosa, el British mode es muy curioso, también muy recomendable.

Para mi, hasta el momento, el mejor "compresor para todo" y el mejor para Guitarras, sobretodo acústicas.
