a noise supressor basically is like a noise gate. it will take away some of the unwanted noise (string talk, minor feedback) to make the sound more crisp.

a compressor will take the signal and compress it, so that it will sustain longer, while ( i believe) making the signal crunchier.

youre hearing this from someone whos only done research and havent actually tried either, people feel free to correct me.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

From what I've heard the Boss compressor isn't very good for the price and you'd be better off with something like an MXR Dyna-comp.

I've also heard their noise gate isn't great, and that the ISP Decimator is brilliant.

Not tried any of those products though, so don't take my word for it.
