Hey guys, since I've exhausted google I fancied I'd give you guys a shout.
So I'm looking for a compressor. But not just ANY compressor. Oh lawd, no. I'm looking for a really dirty, distorting compressor. It comes from a session I had at college where they recently got a Fairchild 660 Compressor plugin on Protools HD setup. We had recorded some acoustic bass and for a joke I thought I'd slam it through this new compressor, max out every knob and sidechain it to the hi-hat or the toms or something.
Except when I turned the input up and threshold down it sounded awesome. Like clipping, but different. We rolled it back so it was only gently distorting and..beauty. And I've wanted one ever since, or something like it. None of my current compressors - Major Tom, Rocket, KVR Classic Comp etc. had this sort of beligerent character to them. SO, give me what you got please and thank you!
