Fire up the Compressor/Limiter III again, bypass it, and listen closely to the natural sound of the bass. Hear how it has a percussive attack and a smooth, gradual decay? The compressor can reshape those, and that can have a huge impact on the character of the instrument. 1. Un-bypass the compressor, and call up the Pumping Bass preset. Notice that the notes decay differently now.

4.

The Input and Output meters have a veritable race to the top, with the Input always having an early lead.
