It sounds exactly how you want an opto to sound. The perfect amount of colour, and it adds monstrous gluey low end to your bass in the amp mode. Delete all your other opto's and run with the best.
Squashing the rest
This is a great compressor to use in smashing an audio single while gaining some rich transients. Also really easy to maintain proper leveling.

if you can sell this for 29 dollars how the hell it's normal price worth 299 dollars . This is not a discount , you are making people nervous, I bought this when you were selling for 249 dollars. Now think nobody will ever buy from you unless you make 'discounts' , so please leave this idiotic marketing shit and sell your products for reasonable prices. In this situation this product worth maximum 45 dollars . Make a good judgement than put the right prices . Please consider this as I think I am not the only person who feels like this. Have a good year, lindell plugs rock !
Optiocom sounds good on everything
Quickly became one of my favorite compressors. Does so much to the sound, very non linear and colorful. Super thick glue-y optical response, each speed has a personality it's own. Amp mode makes this work well as a saturation and color box. Very solid useful compressor, sounds good on almost everything.
I would use this plugin just because of its GUI...

I immediately fell in love with this compressor. Just throw it on your master or any other bus. It makes things sound more appealing even without any compression.
