  • astering Compressor Class A

    by Felix Eder
    Fantastic for Mastering! I have been using the other version for a while now and love it but this one knocks it out of the park. You guys did it again.
  • the SHMC Class A is bonkers

    by Tiki Horea
    This plugin sounds so good. It's a very versatile compressor.
    It's easy on your CPU, despite it being a mastering compressor.
    You get great sounds with little effort.
    If you used the hardware version, you already know it's a beast.
  • SHMC Class A Mastering Compressor

    by Neil Wilkes
    Just when you thought that the whole subject of Mastering Compressors was a done deal, what with the UAD Neve 33609 & API 2500 and the UAD & Native versions of the original SHMC.
    Then we get this one out of nowhere which has all the goodness of the original plus a whole section that simply isn't there on the hardware version like the unique TMT plus other things making this eminently suitable for vinyl work as well like the Mono Maker, Parallel Mix Control, Headroom variability, M/S and more.
    This is still a beast, and with so many options can seem overwhelming at first but it really does pay those who persevere with it and learn how to use it - the learning curve is worth the effort in the end and these days I am finding it is my absolute "go to" mastering compressor and I will only swap it out on those extremely rare tracks that for some reason don't seem to respond well and they are very few indeed.
    This is the magic box you have been looking for all your life - so what are you waiting for? Buy it today!

  • Shadow Hills Class A Mastering Compressor

    by Eddie Torres
    Another level! Having the Shadow Mastering plugin added to my tv/film/productions projects has taken my mixes to another higher level. Wow!!
  • Brilliant for so many applications

    by Vanryne Audio
    I've been using the UAD version of this plugin for some years it's one of my favourite mastering processors to-go. This latest native incarnation from Brainworx/Plugin Alliance is different and better for many reasons.
    Apart from the obvious enhancements with the Limited Edition VCA emulations, the additional features of the 'retractable' Extra Unit, gives so much more practical applications of this plugin than the UAD version.
    I've been using it to tame lead and backing vocals, as well as side-chaining across synth/keys tracks.
    The M/S option is great and the Parallel/Mix control is a godsend.
    Of course it's still a wonderful Mastering Compressor with a real character of it's own, Brainworx have done a really brilliant job.
    Buy it, yank it, crank it, enjoy it ! 8)
