I normally put this on my master for gain staging purposes, it helps a lot with the spl iron and magnun k comp. Normally I don't engage the tube saturation that's handled by the Black Box HG2 but the again I sometimes do!! its a very clean and useful compressor!
twice the comp
I think this is a great tool to a add to my cannon of comps it has a subtle character (a choice of two, I should say) and I mean character as opposed to colouration and of course it does what it says on the tin in a very pleasant way. A great finaliser I feel
Very smooth, clean, and classy. It's perfect for material that needs to retain it's natural quality such as classical, choral, acoustic, and its transparency also makes it a good choice for mastering. I'm very happy to have this in my arsenal.
Super plugin and very quality plugin for mixing....
Very Smoooth and transparent its Perfect for Mastering. I would recommend for a early stage mastering tool, It helps to control transients before it hits my EQing and other Mastering Plugs.

Only owned this for a couple of weeks, but have had a couple of opportunities to use it for a couple of projects. Stellar on guitar and vocal bus tracks; gentle and clean enough to smooth out rough drum bus tracks as well. Stellar all around.
Clean and multifunction compressor
Try it on the song! Sometimes I like the inconspicuous intervention of the compressor, and this compressor is what you need! Two different modes of the compressor make it even more universal.
It's a great compressor for acoustic instruments when you need to polish them but don't want to make it obvious. It also works great for me as drums overheads compressor in the M/S mode. A bit unconventional usage which demands properly recorded drums with accurate mics positioning, but gives the opportunity to achieve incredible precise and smooth compression for cymbals.
smooth as silk , easy to use and transparent
I absolutely love the PA TCL-2! I work with acoustic material almost exclusively and this compressor can be gentle, subtle, and transparent while also giving just that little bit of extra polish. The tube side is great to add that extra little bit of warmth and the SS side can add just the little extra bit of life you need. Can’t say enough about how great this plug is!
