im going to be doing some recording on a digital boss br800, for bass I have a sansamp but im also wondering if i need a compressor for a homestudio, the sansamp tightened up my sound so not sure if a compressor would benefit me in my situation

There's a compressor built into the BR800.

As Cath said. I'd recommend using at least some compression with every instrument track you record, as even if you play well there might be some volume peaks or drops. And it's a waste of time to re-record a whole track if there's a few fluctuations in the volume. And by the way, there's usually a built-in compressor effect in most recording softwares, and if there isn't you can download quality compressor plugins for free.

Maybe I should have used the word "dynamics". Volume is a bit stronger word.

The BR800 has a full suite of Boss MFX for both guitar, bass and vocals and stuff. It's a beast.

Did you try the bass amp simulations in it before you bought the sansamp? There's quite a few in there.
