    Anyone using an Xotic SP Compressor before their drives as a clean boost?

    Is it noisy with the compression set low (or off) and the volume turned up?

    Thinking about replacing my TC Spark mini with one - might come in handy as a compressor for E-bow use and as a boost in other situations.

    I've used mine at both beginning and end of chain as a transparent pre and post gain boost respectively. Not noisy at all with comp on lo, blend mostly dry and volume at 2pm or above. Harlots appreciate xotic things, I am told ;-)
