    Anybody know anything about these?
    I've had this for about 20 years.
    I've seen other similar units with different names.
    All general help welcome. I'm lazy and it gets
    confusing with all the different units produced.

    Cool. So
    compressor. I think I'll send it back to the guy who gave it to me
    20 plus years ago. Was just in touch with him and he could not believe I still
    had it, let alone, that he gave it to me all those years ago. Off to MI it goes.

    Thanks

    I had every Rockman module available back in the 80s. All MIDI controlled and run into the clean channel of a JCM800 2210 full stack. My memory of this rig was everything I played sounded like Boston of course. It was a "processed" sound that fit the times and sounded very good.

    If the previous owner doesn't seem to care or whatever i would look it up if i was you. You never know when something like this might be worth it.
