This is going to be a must have for everyone, please buy this that Cytomic Andy be able to continue his quality job!!! (He is also the mastermind behind fxpansion’s SynthSquad)


Sure, there’s a million compressors out there, but this one is a “must have.” NOT! I already have more comps than I can use, and there is nothing I want to do with compression that I can’t already do with the plugs I have now.


I’m really sorry! I didnt want to hurt your precious soul, i just wanted to let other people know that this one is a stand out both with its quality and price and somehow they could be interested to buy this, actually i didnt write this to such great guys like you who has all the cream.
Wish you all the best in your life!
