This is one of my favorite compressors of all time. It’s so customized, and yet it’s intuitive. In no way is it basic though, you have to have a really god damn good idea at what you’re doing in order to use this thing properly. I have faith in everyone here though. It emulates a Russian compressors, with options for oversampling, limiting, hard or soft knee, filtering, attack time, release time, threshold, dithering, ratio, dry/wetness, up sampling, and a control over what parts (Mono-L, Side, Mid, etc.) gets compressed. Personally, if you want to get a sound out of a compressor, this is the way to do it. It’s the best multi-purpose compressor in my arsenal, and it in no way sounds cold and digital. There’s saturation that can also be controlled if you read the manual. This thing is not neutral, it will leave its imprint, but that imprint is pretty pleasant. Great for vocals and drums. Also, IT’S FREE!!!
