This is still one of my favourite compressor/limiters! One of Plugin-Alliance's best pieces!

Thanks a lot, Marty ;)
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got this plugin other than it sounded okay in the clips, but the top producers love it so there must be something there. This is an amazing plugin, game changer in recording!! I have it on each bus and the master...WOW!!!

Like most of us I have many compressor options. With that said I keep coming back to the 254E. I just really like the way it adds just the right amount of color to the songs. I really appreciate the oversampling options as well. The compression is smooth and even when pushed I don't find it harsh. I can't imagine getting tired of this anytime soon. It just sounds good every time.
BLIMEY!! A superb Rupert class-A emulation! Pushing the compressor's input really hard (with oversampling well up) is where the magic is, yielding bags and bags of very sassy and classy electronic character. One niggle: it's missing an input gain control; typically I'm having to insert a gain control plugin ahead of each instance of the 254E. But I don't mind, I love this thing so much. A thousand thanks and my best regards to Tobias and Emmanuel.

I've used many 'vibey' compressors but I didn't like the character they added. This one is a versatile compressor AND it adds only good things. I've used this comp in a LOT of genres. When an instrument needs to stand out this is usually ON.
Nice Vintage sound!!!

I really love this plugin! It makes the most of my tracks better, it works smooth and very musical. It can't help if you need 100% Compression on a track - but everything in between sounds amazing an natural. Give them a try....

this thing gives you the famous Bonham sound on the kick, almost instantly, but it works really well with any track, really nice compressor that gives that warm saturated sound. also, the release settings are so musical
