You can find 2 or 3 variations of a 1176-style compressor and one will sound "better" to you, and maybe a different one sounds "better" to the next person. If you really need one that is "best", you are most assuredly going to get as many answers as there are opinions about it. The choice will be yours and maybe not the same answer for anyone else specifically.... Not trying to dodge anything, I honestly feel this way.
That's a completely fair, and indeed, great answer.
Maybe it's like asking how a Standard and Traditional Les Paul compare to each other, when really, it is just two variations of awesome. Can't go wrong either way... if you're an LP fan that is .
Wow, I just ran an extremely HOT analog drum machine right into reaper with the U76 on the drum bus and i am absolutely FLOORED. This is hands down the best nebula compressor ive used thus far. I mean i was running some super heavy raw 808's and 909's and it clamped down and created such a warm bottom end with out ANY distortion at the same time bringing forward the percussive elements with any harshness. It sounded completely natural. I cant wait to buy the Black Comp also because from what ive heard so far they are going to sound quite different. Well done Tim this is quite the accomplishment.
