Also the special sound flavor made it is best used as a mastering compressor.

  • A separate fatness control enables you to control the fatness of the sound.

Wow, it looks like real hardware unit! How original and progressive from developers. /s


The design isn’t even from a hardware compressor either,

Head area is from a small consumer level amp and dac combo, (dared mp5 and its copies) decent little unit that i used a few years ago.


Can’t find a demo (for a 29.90 EUR plugin?!) so I’m not sure, but I think the plugin GUI is just the middle part; a plain panel similar to the other Sound Magic effects.

I quite like hardware type interfaces myself (like the ones on Softube or Waves plugins) but not if it’s taking up lots of space for looks only.
