I'll play around and see if I can figure out what you mean exactly . I will say that it's a very subtle effect. It's not as aggressive as other compressors I've used, the Diamond being my favorite. It's my favorite because it's simple and sounds great no matter where you set the comp. This Delegate is a bit too busy in the knob dept, but I'm sure I just need to become more aquatinted with it.Do you find that the SUSTAIN and RATIO controls interact / overlap?
