Love the mix knob
This compressor can squash like an 1176 or transparently tame transients equally well.
High level Plug-in
I'm very satisfied with this compressor and it's used in my work 90% together with other pro level UA plug-ins.
Just use it and know the joy !
Made color by compression
Not just a compressor, it also give you the nice tweak of color in your sound...
Happy to have this in my rig now. Seems simpler than some of the others on offering and I really value its uncluttered transparency.
This an amazing addition to my UAD collection
So fast, so clear, so easy. This compressor saves time and trouble
Amazing tool for mastering
Just loved the Elysia Alpha Master Compressor, use it all the time, especially in MS mode!
Very good for mastering
My favourite mastering compressor (and a bit underrated I think). You can make really surgical changes to the sound while staying completely transparant. So it doesn't add much 'character' but that's not what I need in the mastering stage.
It's (r)evolution baby!!!
This Compressor will blow your mind!!! Fantastic!!!
BIG AND OPEN.
I've never heard a mastering compressor like this one. Sounds transparent, yet creates really open, unrestricting compression that can really keep your mixes intact without biasing/cherry picking certain frequencies. I highly doubt you can listen to what this compressor does and not be impressed, even if it's not your style. 10/10.
My Bass Buss Compressor
This is on my bass buss 9 out of 10 times. It's deep, fat and warm. It adds a nice weight and density. Once in a while I'll use it on the master with 1-2 DB reduction and when it works it's fantastic! It's a great comp. Buy it and you'll be happy.
Logic Pro X Issue
Not working well with Logic Pro X, causes frequent freezes. It's a shame because it's a fantastic compressor !!
The real pro universal compressor plugin
I consider this one the very best all-round compressor. It has a nice punch and the mix knob is super handy to soften that punch if needed. The reaction times and curves are simply wonderful! Impossible to get bad sounds with this baby. Just 4 stars as it is available in native, too. I simply don't get why I should use the UAD version. It nulls out with the VST one, if set correctly. But I will buy the UAD version anyway, since I'm working with a mobile UAD Satellite Firewire, wich I carry around a lot. So I have my most loved plugins with me in an easy and comfortable way...
Great from mastering to instrument control
Very versatile compressor. Has great character and works for just about everything. Works great on vocals,mouth also has control over mix sides which is great for mastering. Just an awesome tool!
Great master compressor
Great for master bus
Just dabbling with mid side and this plugin makes this very simple
Transparent in a GREAT way.
I've always gone for emulations of classic gear for my buss compressors (SSL, Focusrite etc) but I've seen the light with this thing. Super tight, controlled compression and it doesn't cloud your mix, and the low end still comes through really nice and clean. The sort of compressor you can either mix into or just throw it on towards the end. Really cool and so far in just a couple of weeks of owning it it's worked on R&B, rock and reggae tracks nicely.
I demoed this along with a couple other compressors in the price range, this won, hands down. very transparent, but very powerful. at first, its pretty daunting to look at, but, its laid out logically and you'll get used to it. just put it on your 2 buss, or any instrument buss, and go through the presets(on a orchestral string buss, its amazing). the "mix" version is very nice to have to, but it doesn't save THAT much CPU.
I guess it's "supposed" to be just a mastering tool, but heck, use it wherever you want(I'm glad I have a quad for this one!)
A Master of Mastering
Wow. This thing is a beast. It is very transparent (the 'Warm' button adds a nice tube touch though), and it is extremely powerful. Let me say that again, EXTREMELY POWERFUL. I often use this on vocals to make them explode out of the speakers without having a multiple stages of compressors. For mastering, man does this thing glue! I can finally attain near-mastering-studio grade tracks, and with the mid/side mode you can really make some impressively large and expansive songs. The eq on it is great for accenting the mid and side, I often set the two at around 1.1k and boost half a db towards the low end for the mid, and the same amount towards the mid/highs for the sides; it really creates a wonderful soundstage. Would recommend.
Really sweet sounding compresser for master
