looks pretty good:

anyone tried one, yet? I would want to use it for my drone set of cheap, charming effects and keyboards, i often have problems with loud peaks that kill the experimental flow

nice

EHX Platform + Digitakt

I'm also looking for opinions on this. That digitakt video has increased my GAS.
I think I'm about to pull the trigger.

It's a toss-up between this and the RNLA for me, to be used on synths and drum machines.

The Platform looks like heaps of fun, and fun is actually more important to me than sound quality!

RNLA has so much street cred though...

OK I've had the platform running for about a week now. Loving it.
Mostly running it on volcas and microbrute so far.

It's exactly what I was hoping for - super fun and flexible, capable of some moderately/heavy squishing.

The drive is quite useful. Swell is not super flexible on sequenced or rhythmic sounds, but great on longer slower sounds.

Highly recommended!
I will probably still end up with an RNLA as well though thumbs up

It's peanut butter jelly time!

haha, me too i think. im eyeing both, too

Is it good for tweaking and noodling live or do you tend to set it and forget it?

Its very tweakable and fun to play with!

Do you find that it preserves the original signals bass frequencies OK? Any major loss or shrillness creep in once you start compressing?

I haven't noticed any bass loss or harshness. But I'm just using it in jam scenarios - nothing too critical. I could do a bit of a test if you like.

No worries, it's a good sign if you're using it and not noticing anything major vanishing from your original signal. Thanks!

...Love mine on drum machines! A little bit of drive really thickens it up. I was primarily interested in a little pedal-style out-of-the-box compressor, and the fact it's stereo I/O sold it immediately. No regrets; though using it in jam sessions, not primarily for recording.

I had one for a little while and then sold it.

It sounds good and works very well as a compressor, but it didn't get along with the rest of my pedalboard.

I put my compressor first. Sometimes I use a compressor by itself and sometimes I follow it with a distortion.

It worked fine when used by itself or even when activated with a distortion engaged, but if the Platform was bypassed and any of my distortions were on, I had horrible trouble with screechy high end feedback that I normally don't have. There must be a buffer in the Platform active in bypass with a not very flat frequency response.

I went back to using a Pigtronix Philosopher's Rock, which isn't as nice of a compressor, but didn't give me buffer problems.

FWIW, the best comp I have used on my board was a FEA Labs DE-CL. I was an idiot for selling it.

Are the two sides always linked, or can they react as two separate channels?
