Definitely keep the Broughton. And, as a bass player who kept his comp & OC on the board, I suggest you do the same with those too. There are algos that can do very (very) good comp, OC & envelope. But personally, I wouldn’t commit one of my H90 slots to any of those. Sure, there are times when something I’m using in one slot needs a little taming (either going in, or coming out), so I’ll throw a comp, EQ, gate, et al in the other slot. And it is fantastic to have that option. But I’m definitely not going to leave any of those things operational for the long term. I defer to @brock on the source type questions.
All that said, don’t dismiss the H90 based on it not being able to do X, Y or Z. 1) In general, I think that approach is a recipe for disappointment, and 2) IMHO, the H90 is much more than a ‘stompbox’. Think “pro level signal processing in pedal format’.
Get one. Try it for a while – along *with* your comp & OC. If it’s not your jam, either return it or sell it. No harm, no foul.
