My daughter gave me one of these many years ago and they were actually used on a session. If you haven't heard the story, I'll post it again. Too funny
Do tell us. The RNC is a pretty decent compressor. I still have one that gets a fair amount of use when I use a compressor (which isn't very often). But mine doesn't have a cool dashboard.
My daughter gave me one of these funklogic do nothing pieces of rack filler. For a breif second I thought it was real, but soon discovered it was a joke. I put it in an empty rack space. I had a group come in for a session. The leader of the group was a very arrogant control freak whom the band worshipped. During mixdown we were searching for a solution for a specific sound. The band leader pointed to the do nothing Funklogic peice and said "lets try that". I told him that it doesn't do anything. His reply to me was "I'LL BE THE JUDGE OF THAT"! I repeated that it was cosmetic and not functional. He insisted LETS TRY IT! He wouldn't conceed to the fact that it was for show only and he and his band insisted we try it. The time came to prove that it didn't do anything so I started turning the knobs and he said START LOW so I turned a knob fully CCW and started up the scale, and he said "YES, I like it", turn it up more. A little more. more. TOO MUCH! Back it off a little. Now bring it up just a tad, A little more, YES!! PERFECT!! All the band members were cheering their control freak leader with praise and admiration.
For the life of me I have no idea what they were hearing. I was behind the board thinking to my self. "If they only knew" I kind of felt abused, but they were on the clock, I was paid, and they were pleased. I guess I did my job, but I will never forget that session.
