This is a really great comp!!! Has many different features/settings which make it a little tricky to learn what it can do. Searching for vids on it and reading the manual (and rereading several times) can help unlock what the unit is really capable of. I would say this isn't the easiest compressor to wrap your head around feature wise, but there is definitely a reason why it is widely used in great studios (pro and home). Extremely versatile comp thats worth the price!!!
