“I must tell you that the sound of my AD2044 is spectacular – drop dead quiet, absolutely transparent, and full frequency response even during heavy squeezing.” – Jim B., IA“The AD2044 does simply amazing things for vocals and bass guitar as well as across the stereo buss. It can also warm things up if pushed a bit harder. If you can only own one analog compressor, I don’t think anyone can possibly go wrong choosing this one!” – Bob S., NY“The AD2044 is my favorite for vocals, bass, acoustic piano, and across the mix buss. It is the most musical and transparent compressor I have ever heard.” – Rob C., CA
