That doesn't mean it doesn't work on synthesizers and at a nice price point.
I recommended a couple guitar / bass pedal compressors a couple messages ago that I've had the chance to test out on synthesizer and the results are far from ridiculous.
^Agreed. But the range of situations a Sub37 might find itself inside is rather wide, so I'm really curious to hear more details about anyone's rig. (Also, Vinny is a known quantity and if we can get his rec we should all pay attention.)
Band Leader talked to me about the Little Phatty (they used to use) and its tendency to get crazy loud through certain PAs when using certain patches. (LOL Sounds like a Moog, right?) So, I threw a DynaComp on the board since I'm already running through 'stomp boxes' and not a rack system. I think it sounds vintage and thick at practice and I still have volume control on the swells.
I'm not treating the Sub37 like a Hi-Fi sound source. Personally, I'm extremely hesitant to revisit The Rack Era of the '80s/'90s and am about ready to kick the Hardwire Supernatural off the board because of its overly clean digital sound. Dislike playing ROMplers, and avoid computers when I'm off the clock. So, my choices have a strong personal bias to them.
