“If you’re struggling to decide between a Distressor, an 1176 and an LA3A, the Dragon might be the solution — and it’s certainly worthy…”

“The Dragon is a fantastic choice for “my one and only compressor”, and that’s a rare thing in today’s world of choice upon choice.”

“The desire to have a box do “everything” while offering a sane number of controls is a tricky balance… The Dragon manages to combine what would be a great sounding straightforward FET compressor on any level with a control set that drastically changes the overall characteristics of the unit quickly”

“The Dragon is a great compressor – everything I love about an 1176 but with way more features and tone.  The EQ is especially useful.  Saturation modes, blend knob…  Super flexible with loads of control and character.” – Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stoneage, Bad Religion, Powerman 5000, Jesus Lizard, Tool, Anthrax, L7, Bauhaus)

“The Vintage topology has very definite overtones of a classic Neve 1073‑style preamp — obviously warm, ‘phat’, rounded and rich, with a solid, big‑bottomed character complemented by a smooth top‑end sheen. mode and 63dB for the Modern mode.

“It’s a very robust, big bottom, warm sound that fits well with my production style. Definitely a special sound. I believe it’s supposed to be a 1073 type pre, and it definitely nods in that direction, but this sounds more… sophisticated? Refined?

“I have Fox #17 here and I have to agree, the vintage modes have a richness that is hard to describe, easy to appreciate, especially on voice. The sonic differences between the four options on each channel are subtle but distinct, and I suspect all four will get used here, including the modern mode, which sounds fast and tight but not sterile. Slate did a nice job with the Fox.”
