$150 budget rack compressors


AKA Optimus Prime LEGO Vampire
Ive had the RNC a few times, and the small box thing is why I sold it; I tend to prefer a heavy rack piece of metal for some reason....even on my desktop.
The RNC is a hit. If you havent yet, try the RNLA . Use it on a bass kick drum. On the mixer FX buss at like 60%. Makes the kick drum real splatty. It has a nice coloration to it more than the RNC.

The RNLA goes about $180 used..still worth considering.

Yes, FMR has some nice compressors. The RNP preamps them. Place 3 of them in the rack caddy. It will sit in the rack fine.
