I tried a drawmer lx 20 for a while
the expander part worked like a VCA with AR env (sounded great on an 808) but the compression didnt really work, it sounded more like a volume control.
the prodigy had one so i was expecting more out of it.
i tried the sidechain and stuff and couldnt get the pumping sound out of it at all. maybe i just wasnt using it right. sold it 3 years ago.
any compression masters here? which hardware compressors would you rate? i know people rate the alesis 3060 or whatever it's called because daft punk had their pumping sound on it. but i think daft punk are shit so there we are.
there was a d&b group called calyx that used liquidmix hardware compressor,digital software, their music sounds great
which are the good compressors to look out for?
