glad you revived this thread. I was looking at OE the other day and was pondering the difference between the 'regular' and the 'bass' Cali76. My experience with my MXR Dynacomp pedal has made me a believer in hardware compressor especially for recording. And even more so for bass now that I have one again.

Not saying the Dynacomp isn't a fine pedal but it really wasn't meant to be a studio rack quality compressor, it was meant to be in front of a guitar/bass amp. The Cali76 is supposed to be based on one of the most widely regarded studio compressor of all time. There's a reason why that compressor is held in such esteem.
