  1. Ovnilab - Compressor comparison tool

    I thought OVNI was no longer being updated in anyway? Has he changed his mind?
  2. Reverb pedal - quite specific though

    @radiophonic digitech hardwire reverb (predecessor to the polara) also has a good reverse reverb and may be cheaper second hand, although no longer in production. The EHX cathedral has a reverse, and a hold switch with infinite reverb which is interesting. Take a look at the old blood noise endeavours dark star, has bit crush, and octave up reverb that works well on bass (i've owned one, brilliant but upgraded to strymon timeline). https://www.oldbloodnoise.com/pedals/dark-star
  3. TC Electronics Spectradrive.

    apparently it's $199 in the US, £209 seems a bit rough in comparison.
  4. Bass Overdrive / Distortion

    Love my Palisades.
  5. TC Electronics Spectradrive.

    Still unclear as to whether thats seperate toneprints for each feature, or new combined ones.
  6. TC Electronics Spectradrive.

    ah, such an annoying release.
  7. Line 6 Helix.

    If they released an M5 style HX FX, I'd be in serious trouble.
  8. I don't get compressors

    Was initially unsure about compressors. Educated myself, realised it would solve issues I had with my P-bass (even signal and more sustain wanted). Bought a Walrus Deep Six (blend control and internal voltage boost to 18v deciding factors). Plugged for 5 mins to test - issues immediately solved, but dynamics I need still present. More tweaking required, but instant pay-off.
  9. If you could choose only one compressor pedal

    Ovnilab.com does reference the grit switch found on the previous (larger) version of the pigtronix bass comp and he wasn't a fan of the character of it compared to the one found on the 'guitar specific' (although still usable on bass) version. This put me off a bit, but considering how they made improvements previously based on his input I wouldn't be surprised if this has been tweaked as well. Fortunately I have drive options (EQD palisades and Green Russian Muff) so feature wasn't as important and justifying my impatience!
  10. If you could choose only one compressor pedal

    No worries @Al Krow, I was going to wait and grab one too, but saw a Walrus Audio Deep Six for a good price online and pulled the trigger. When GAS strikes, there is no waiting...
  11. Compressors - Do I need One?

    Pulled the trigger on a walrus deep six.
  12. If you could choose only one compressor pedal

    Theres a new Pigtronix coming out around 1st March: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PhilosBMicro
  13. JHS Pulp n' Peel Comp

    Any users out there? The has piqued my interest too.
  14. Compressors - Do I need One?

    Appreciate the responses folks @jposega / @Jus Lukin, learning all the time!
  15. Compressors - Do I need One?

    If I play almost always with a pick, am I stupid by looking at compressors?
