    The hardware version has been a longtime favorite of mine, and the new Xtressor finds itself at the top of my dynamics list in my DAW. It reacts flawlessly, similar to classics such as the 1176 or LA2-A. Its side-chain filters aid in removing low-end information that triggers compression when it's not needed, and I’m a big fan of saturation, and the distortion modes help me achieve that fine line of saturation I’m always looking to add. On vocals, I love to use the warmth control for tape compactness.

    MAN this thing is sick! Gets so chubby and fat, and then I flip the ips switch and it’s the PERFECT top end! Tape Face is the best tape sim. Hand Down!

    I felt like there weren’t enough emulations out there. I wanted to improve on the original analog hardware by adding essential features such as Mid/Side processing, and dual mono, as well as adding a bunch of extra features you can’t really find on other compressor plugins.

    The Xtressor makes an excellent addition to any compressor arsenal, offering 8 different compressors in 1 plugin. Each of its 8 ratios offers the sound of a completely different compressor.
