Can't-Go-Wrong bus compressor

Top notch. Does master bus glue perfectly. Fantastic on drum busses. Simply excels at bus compression as you'd expect. Nice and smooth sounding and easy to dial in. Definitely the first compressor I reach for on any group bus and is always on my Master Bus. CPU intensive in Oversampling mode, but can be switched to "Lowest Latency" mode for very low CPU demand and extremely low latency. Very happy to have this in my plugin folder.
