  • I much preferred the non-Vertigo version. Less signal path...closer to the source...and the dynamics are nice. The squashed version achieves nothing other than a good dose of boredom-factor. The Rhodes sounds great and interesting to the ear on the non-squashed version, but loses that in the Vertigo version. If you match the subjective playback levels using this magic knob we all have at home called a "volume knob", it's a fairly straightforward procedure to make it louder if you want...
