Compressor For Electric Guitar at Board
« on: November 18, 2019, 06:25:19 am »

Hello, I play electric guitar in our praise band at our church on average 300 in attendance. We recently installed a compressor at the board. They wanted to run my electric guitar through it. Personally I don't see any value as I can only go as loud as the sound guy sets me. I can't over drive it like a singing voice...

So my question is. Why would they want me to use this compressor? If its a good idea what would be the best settings?

Our Unit is Presonus ACP88
