I am looking for a compressor and I think an optical one would be a good choice. My main goals are 1) making notes more even - softening hard notes and giving strength to soft notes 2) give me a little more sustain 3) hide the pick attack a little 4) my original sound as unaltered as possible.
Any suggestions? The Carl Martin Opto Comp seems like a good and cheap choice - and has an attack button which seems great. A guy here can build me a Demeter but it doesn't have an attack control... The FloorQ seems great but its a little expensive for a compressor.
Thanks in advanced!
