Equipboard's gear archive is collaboratively built and maintained by fellow music lovers like yourself. Anyone can submit gear and equipment to artists. Joining Equipboard also allows you to create your own list to track the gear you have and want, and follow artists like Dave Pensado to never miss gear updates.
Think of it as taking a console (let's say an SSL) and when you hit the console hard you're inducing a little bit compression and limiting. The way the distortion comes through is very pleasing and it rounds of some edges. It helps you push sound to a ceiling in a smooth way!!!
