Awesome!  What a great idea, love to hear it action if you could post a clip... the DIY compressors I've heard aren't as subtle as I prefer, so having a mix control would be awesome

What is the switch on the bottom for? I have an original but it does not have a switch.

What do you change for the janglebox mod?  I have a Ross compressor that I have not boxed up yet.  I might try it out.

I'm highly intrigued by the addition of the blend control and wonder if it's something I could add to my MXR Dyna Comp as a mod...

check out the barber tone press. as I understand it (keep in mind my understanding is limited) the barber is a Ross comp clone with a blend knob

did you use a specific layout that incorporated the janglebox switch?

This would be a great version of Ross comp to have a Madbean board on the projects page (with blend control and jangle switch mod)! Yaya! ;D
