    Fantastic sound
    by styxxs2004
    This compressor adds just the right amount of harmonics and grit, for lack of a better term, in a good way to make things sound better. I love it!

    Just Buy It Already
    by Bassfingerz
    I have heard the real deal outboard version of this baby at a session.
    Fell in love with it when I heard what it did for the vocalist.
    I wanted to own it, but couldn't afford it.
    But when I discovered you guys came out with a plugin version I HAD to check it out.
    I figured I'd demo it for 14 days and make my decision, if I'd buy it or not.
    Well...I made my decision in less than 10 mins.
    This will now be my go to compressor when I record bass.
    I love how it brings it to life, and sits right in the mix.
    I highly recommend this to anyone who's looking for a really good compressor, in plugin form, but sounds like warm analog outboard gear.
    Keep up the great work Plugin Alliance!

    one of my favorite go to comps
    by uberlab
    This is by far my favorite compressor for "coloring". It can handle everything from vocals to percussions, to even orchestral elements (I love to use this on cellos - magic!)

    I head this one the first time. It lifts the dust and boxyness as if the audio went trough a real custom made tube amp. It makes a very analog warm sound. Not always my favorite to use it on everything but certain sounds.

    What a comp!
    by C-bird
    Amazing plug-in! It may be not for all occasions, but it's capable of adding some sweet "colour" and musical distortion...
    Last but not least, its "less is more" attitude makes it a joy to use.

    Amazing Opto
    by SeanRayaMusic
    This has to be one of the best sounding algorithmic opto compressors I have used. I absolutely love the versatility of it. It can do everything from smooth LA-2A like compression to saturated tonal shaping. Highly recommended!

    This thing is amazing. Truly, there are VERY few "tube compressor" plugins that I actually enjoy using, because they don't sound like my tube hardware units. I won't say this thing sounds "just like" a hardware unit, but who cares -- because it sounds GREAT. That's all I care about. Very colored, very goopy and true "opto" action - nonlinear, fun to use, and tons of great plugin perks - parallel, noise adjust, input pad, etc.
