    Which is your choice of the best compressor? If other name it please! I'm just trying to decide if I should convert, that's all!

    How can you have a compressor showdown without including the Barber Tone Press? ;)

    Or the HBE Retro or the Diamond or the Boss CS-3 or......

    Seriously though, if you like the Keeley and the Analogman you should check out the HBE Comp Retro. One of my favorites.
    Oh yeah, I have a Barber Tone Press on my main board :)

    BJF Pine Green compressor for me. I think my second choice would be the Tone Press.

    I love the AM Bi-Comp. It's got two distinct sounds in a small box. Not "transparent", but beautifully colored.

    I've been using a Keeley Comp for a while now but I just bought a Barber Tone Press based on the many recommendations from TGP members. I'll give you my opinion after I receive the Tone Press.

    It's popular for a reason! ;)

    I just got a Maxon CP-9 Pro+, which has the actual dbx compressor circuit in it, and it is really nice. It has 3 knobs - Threshold, Ratio & Gain. So you have a lot of flexibility for setting it according to your needs/tastes. Very transparent and quiet.

    I also like the Line6 Constrictor, which models the Ross, Orange and an Opto compressor.

    Highly recommended.
