It’s not quite true, but generally
“Generally” was how I was approaching things. From the general tone of the OP I got the impression he is completely new to effects. Could be wrong. Getting into the specific differences of each device could turn into quite an involved post especially if I was to take the time to explain the explanations.😉
OTOH, you have some good points and knowledge like the ability to drive the Micropitch. I don’t own or ever played the stand alone pedal so I can’t speak to the specifics. I’ve seen more than a few demos. Personally I would probably look at a purpose built compressor using analog technology for a bass. Or anything for that matter. Quality optical compressors can’t be beat. But I tend to always keep economics in mind when giving advice. “Best bang for the buck” sort of thing.
