It's really a truly great compressor.

I just teach guitar and make simple lesson recordings and backing tracks in a small project studio. I don't expect great results but I use an Avalon VT737sp preamp, a Neumann TLM103 and an AKG414UBLS and get a respectable sound. I have friends with preamp plug ins and frankly, I haven't been impressed, so I was hesitant to try the PuigChild but the price was worth a gamble though I doubted it would sound like a real compressor. Boy was I wrong. If there was a button to push that would magically add an aura of professionalism to your tracks, this is it. I've recorded with the original Fairchild and can truthfully say, this captures that same magic. I don't think I'll record without it again.

PuigChild is great!

Great plugin. If you want a great plugin to fatten things up, get this classic. They really did do a great job on this one. I put this compressor on my keys live rig using Ableton and wow did it bring it out. My backing tracks and the piano really pops out now. If you catch this one on sale.....just do yourself a favor and pick it up!!!!

New to it

I was new to Puig, never heard of it before. But I must say that after the initial learning curve this is my go to comp okay? "If you take it away you miss it" is the saying that goes best with this plug in. Pre sets are very useful as well. Adds body, depth, character. On the mains out I put this in front of a limiter and -0.3 Db, then analyze in a master suite getting 0's (no clips) every time. Love it. And of course Sweetwater has a great team giving great support, knowledgeable in any thing one may purchase at the store.

Simply Amazing!!

Recommend this to anyone making music. In my opinion, it's the best compressor out there. The results I've gotten have been mind-blowing. Just purchase it. You won't be disappointed.

Waves PuigChild 660 & 670 Plug-in

I have several compressors in my DAW and all have their special characteristics. However the Waves PuigChild 660 & 670 plug-in serves my needs more often than any of the others. It is very easy to use and has several options go application. I do recommend this plug-in to all DAW users. You won't be disappointed.
