The CL1B Tube-Tech Emulation TDM Version
I've tried many compressor plug-ins, but this is far and away the best'- full of character and yet versatile. It can impart a real warmth and smoothness to the sound - especially male vocals, but set with a slower attack and quick release, can give real smack to a snare drum. I also have to mention the built in presets which are EXCELLENT as a starting point for various sources. Seeing the settings the designers recommend for different sources was actually educational as well as a pleasure to use. Slam dunk 5 stars for me.
