Honestly good pedal compressor was something I though I would never find. I rotated a lot of "its kind a ok. I guess" -pedals. Recently it changed, and FEA Labs is one of the new companies making good compressors in pedal format. I tap, slap, play with pick and finger style, so I wanted something with a limiter. DE/CL ticket all the boxes sound wise. Warmth is a nice addition, I tend to keep it always fully on. Ads nice sparkle in the upper harmonics. It sounds similar to some of the nicer saturation plugins.
I also have a little home studio, I got the DE/CL just in time for the first record project. Used it on bass, guitar, double bass, violin, viola, saxophone and trombone. Great sounding comp, that is simple, but still it has enough controls to be useful. If it has one thing I would love to change, its jack placement. Top jacks would be so nice. :)
