Hey guys, I have a compressor question. I'm trying to get the compressor tone of the walrus audio deep 6 which is a 1176 studio compressor. Are there any compressors on helix similar to that circuit? I know there is the LA-2A, but the circuit is different and I've heard it can sick your guitar tone away. Thoughts?
So, one of the main things that led me to get rid of my PodXT Live was that, its compressors really really sucked. By the time you finally got the sustain right, the attack was sooo horrible that it was completely unusable. All I got was a wretched "thunk" sound on the attack - all bass and no highs. I've used guitar compressors for a long time and never had any of them do that except for some of the early Boss compressors. I hope that some of you can assure me to some degree that they, Line 6, have actually learned about how guitar compressors are supposed to sound like. This is my only trepidation about having ordered another Line 6 product. I also noticed that there's really only one guitar compressor being modeled. The MXR Dynacomp. They're workable but I do hope they'll give us more choices later on.
