Getting amazing results with this in combination with bx_digital v3, PA ProAudioDSP DSM V3 and bx_limiter True Peak. The green version is quite good but this red version is in a league of its own. Love the amount of expert knowledge captured in the UI. My production mastering chain is now all PA and the improvement over the name brands I've been using is pretty big. Getting very strong results with not much effort with the PA chain.
Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Class A
by Rosta Foret
I purchased from September 2021 3 plug-in + bonus = MADDMIX BX_CONSOLE AMEK 9099 / Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor Class A / Black Box Analog Design HG-2 / Black Box Analog Design HG-2MS. He put on recordings, the background of my band. It is more than surprising, pleasing, functional, the band sounds completely different about what I reach, works, everything jumped in speech, readability, result compactness. Lord Engineers at P.-a. Thanks from Europe, Czech Repault. Rf
Easily the best

This is by far the best Mastering Compressor I've put my hands on. Super warm & tight! And not only this plugin but also all the others sound absolutely gorgeous. Best quality out there hands down!

Probably the most beautiful compressor on earth. Just starring at the VU meters and glance at the dance of the hypnotic needles. It sounds like heaven in hell !
Mastering Compressor Class A

Brilliant compressor, didn't really need it right now but I had to support in the wake of the terrible flooding.

This might be the best-sounding mastering compressor to my relatively amateur ears. I'm slowly learning the ins and outs of all of the many controls, but even with all the complexity, it is pretty easy to dial in something that sounds good. In fact, it's kind of hard to dial in something that sounds bad. Even just browsing the presets I'm blown away that they all bring out characteristics in my tracks that I didn't even hear before but that I can't get enough of once they are there. I could easily make this the only mastering compressor I ever use, and I would never feel like I am lacking anything. I've never used the original hardware, but this has all the qualities of the best hardware emulations available. Most people are never going to get the real hardware, so having this amazing piece of gear available in any studio with this level of quality is absolutely worth the price of admission.
Like dragging a tape through grit
It sits on the busses and everything sounds way too polite without it. It literally sounds like I've rubbed grit on a tape. Amazing.
The mastering monster!
I used to try different kind of compressors on my mastering depending on the song. Now I can't take this beast off my chain. Absolutely felt in love with this one!
