I put the Lindell 354E on the stereo buss of a mix I was working on, and it glued the track together perfectly. This thing rules.
The 354E has a new home on my parallel drum buss! Having all the features of a modern multiband compressor, but with vintage tonality, is super useful, and it can easily do what would otherwise require three or four plugins with side chains, filters, saturation, and all kinds of routing. It also kills on piano and big rock guitars, and fans of the original vintage circuit will find a ton of new uses for it.
Loving this one -- it’s a beast! I could instantly blow up the kick out of a full drum loop without affecting the rest of the sounds. I was able to warm up a vocal and give it some nice attitude in a second. Also on the mix buss, the 354E works amazingly -- fat and warm, and if you like, you can go crazy with the 'Nuke' button. 10/10!
The 354E retains all the detail of the original signal but gives the frequencies you need help with plenty of extra punch and bite. The filter stage is smooth and subtle, unless you want to drive it hard, in which case, it can roar.
I’ve really enjoyed using the Lindell 354E on a new batch of mixes. It has a detailed yet powerful sound that is perfect for the mix buss or for mastering. The three bands, sidechain filter, Mix knob, and M/S functionality really give you a lot of control. The large GUI is gorgeous to look at and a joy to use.
Absolutely love the Lindell 354E multiband compressor. The presets are awesome as a start position, like the mix masterclass. Then the interface… awesome! Will use on my mixes from now on, plus on the keyboard buss.
The Lindell 354E is my #1 choice for glueing everything together and making it sound humongous at the same time. With the Multiband, M/S and 'Nuke' switch, the 354E can deliver new sounds which I never heard in my dreams. Also great to bring out the ticking of your Cuckoo Clock from next door.
There is a lot to like about the 354E’s quality of performance. I love that each band has M/S capabilities. It adds some nice punch and glue without ruining anything. I love how the interface is big as well so it’s easy to read. It’s got the vibe and mojo that would make it a go-to plugin for me.
A beautifully laid out and great sounding multiband comp. The amount of control this gives me over the mix is incredible; having m/s on the three bands is very powerful and I really feel I am able to tighten things up to the next level. The 'Nuke' button is a nice touch too, if you wanna go super aggressive. Overall, a brilliant mix tool and will definitely become part of my arsenal.
I was enjoying this a lot... Then I found the Nuke button -- then my brain exploded. When used in parallel I can't think of a single other device that does what this does -- future-retro exactly where it counts.
The 2254 is/was the king of punchy compression, now reimagined for modern mixing as a complete mulitiband beast. My mixes are bigger, wider, punchier and have more space and air because of it. Completely versatile as the standard 2254. Basses are big and round, drums vicious and guitars cut through the mix like a chainsaw.

After spending last weekend on an older 80s series tracking, I used a few 2254s. Back at mixing, the Lindell 254E did just what I wanted in terms of the original. It has been my main two-buss compressor for most genres for a while now. Now that the 354E was released I am beside myself. I have been waiting for a mulitband with this color to be made and here it is. The sound is extremely easy to dial in and isn't complicated or dangerous like other mulitband compressors can be. Lovely sounds.
Most multiband compressors, for good reason, are pretty sterile. The Lindell 345E however is a vibe machine with character for days, a lethal combination of accuracy and attitude. And it’s got a ‘mix’ knob!
I was blown away when I received this plugin. It is able to compress extremely aggressively on drums and guitars but also incredibly smoothly on vocals. This will be my go-to compressor on strings and brass. It has a very nice analogue feel to it and is very easy to set.
