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!

No words for this one, it feels like a real piece of hardware, it´s like everything I run through it gets magical improved, not only for mastering, it works on everything!
I'm still learning how to master and unleash the full power of this compressor, but so far it has been an excellent addition to my arsenal. I especially love the Bass Two-Stage preset. Slap that on the bus and you get magic. Excellent on drum bus and 2-bus as well.
