Decided I needed a compressor recently. Had one briefly a while back, didn't care for it, returned it, but thought maybe since my playing has matured I could make it work. Did some research and last Saturday got a TC Hypergravity. Don't like it. For one, even at moderate compression ratio and 50% dry blend, it adds a LOT of noise. I was considering using as a boost into a light overdrive, but that's out of the question. Second, it adds a lot of "pop" to note attack, no matter where I set the attack knob. So, basically, I only like it with mild compression and when the blend is majority set to the dry signal. I was wanting to add some authority to upper fretboard, held out arpeggios and that kind of thing, but because of the noise and pop factor, it just really turns me off. I think I would rather just boost with some mild OD, as I've been doing, and ditch the squeaky cleans for this kind of playing. Do I just not get compression?
