Comments about Electro-Harmonix NY-2A Stereo Tube Compressor:

I have been using this compressor for mastering, and I have found it to be an incredibly unique item with all of the options in a straight deal. YOu can go with LED, Lamp, Or The Electoluminiscent setting to get the sound you are looking for. The Lamp has that push that you may be more accustomed to and the LED is something uniques all in itself with its flat yet not squashed sound. Of course last but not least the E.L. setting is honestly the most unique thing out there. IT is alot like an LA-2A with its straight forward compress/Limit effect. You can crush the mix and it still sound perfect. It eliminated all of that rumble and rasp, leaving you with a smooth transparent tone, that is of course when used properly. If used accordingly you can use this on tracks and you wont even be able to tell it is compressed. Its just natural.
