    for what? cause 2 types of compressors can be very different.

    an FMR RNC is a good one, but not for drums, then i would search a secondhand DBX 160

    get a software comp. get the waves renaissance bundle it's cheap and useful. it's far better than any hardware in the same price range.

    sorry but i find it a piece of crap. Crappy preamp and crappy comp. An FMR outshine it easely on both levels
