I can't say enough good things about this plugin. I haven't used the hardware version so I don't know how it stacks up but this is a very powerful plugin. I've even listened to commercially mastered music through this and in a few minutes I was getting a slightly punchier and bigger sound. Well worth the money.
The Bus Comp
I had the chance to try the original one and this plug-in is as close as you can get to the real thing.I love putting it in the master bus right at the beginning and start mixing into the comp. I never achieved similar results with any other tool!Thanks for this beautiful "peace" of gear :)
it's close to the original, amazing product !
powerful and transparent
The alpha compressor is recommended to everyone who needs a transparent dynamic tool. Very good for finishing your material at mastering without coloration and with a subtle touch when using the "warm" button.
