A reliable compressor for the daily job on instrument tracks with a very good sound. Unfortunately there is no x64 VST version.

This is your perfect "standard" compressor. You have control over everything you need to learn compression as well as to be advanced yet transparent. It has the analog style of sought after compressors for all instruments and vocals yet in a neutral way(so you dont get all the extra coloring and saturation that so quickly piles up when using fancy analog style vsts. I look at it like an improvement of the 1176 style but for the digital era. Every engineer needs a transparent go to compressor like this. Classic's tools arent all that but this compressor is divine in its timing(been using it for years). I even use this on my master bus of every genre when mixing because it sounds smooth and doesnt over color(giving me the option of slapping on a different compressor for coloring purposes). If this had an auto-gain option and an analog coloring/transformer/hiss/saturation emulation option this would be the best modern analog compressor vst ever.

A really good compressor, use it all the time, doesn't use a lot of cpu, I have run one on every channel, three stars is very underrated! If you record anything you should download this it's a studio basic get!

I have tried many of the FREE compressor downloads and this one is definitely the best for DRUMS - really PUNCHY - a very natural (ANALOG-style) attack & finish - a very good VST!

A pretty good compressor in my opinion. It has everything you need to compress almost all genres of music. It would be great if you could choose which part of the sound you wanted to compress (high, mid, low).
