    Since I bought the plugin it has become one of my favorite compressors to add color and extra punch to drum group elements. To obtaine transparent or smooth compresion I would use other PA plugins.
    Opto + Subsynth = World Cup winner team :P

  • The most versatile Opto plugin

    by Steve Paine
    No kidding, the Bx Opto is the most versatile Opto plugin out there. It does smooth and natural effortlessly on a huge range of sources. The extremely cunning side chain options mean you can tailor the compression perfectly to fit your objective. If pump and colour are your thing then drive it hard and fast and it really starts to pop.
    I love to use this on lead instruments such as Sax, Guitar and Flute to smooth the sound naturally. It is a dream on Pianos and Organ sounds too. Whilst I prefer other options for lead vocal, the Opto is perfect on the B. Vox buss to keep it all under perfect control.
    Whilst the Opto doesn't aim to emulate any particular hardware piece, it does remind me of my Langevin (Manley) ELOP in its action and that is some compliment!

    Smooth compressor. Bought on a flash sale. Worth every cent!
  • A Go-To

    by MJ
    Brainworx has created an all-new staple with this one. This is simple and extremely versatile for just about any application. I'm trying to think of one that it would not work with and can't come up with a dam thing.

  • Optical compressor +

    by James Cory
    This a great optical compressor, if you are looking for transparent yet musical compression with excellent side chain features. Works great on a variety of sources! I find myself using Plugin Alliance products more than any other in my mixes, with fantastic results :)
  • The Perfect Opto

    by MCCdusk
    This is definitely the most flexible optical compressor in my big arsenal of opto compressors. If you ever needed a great sounding opto with variable attack, well thought-out sidechain and parallel compression - here it is!
