The "colored" category can be pretty wide - Manley VariMu, Gyraf Gyratec X, SPL Qure...
Actually, when it comes down to it, almost any compressor you want can sound "colored" if that's what you're looking for.
Compressors with more transparency might inlcude the Crane Song STC-8, Massenburg, etc.
Thanks alot massive, like always very helpful
Let's not forget the Cranesong Trakker. Bob Katz just got two of them(they're mono units} for more 'edgy, colored' masters.
I don't really have a dirty or clean, they just work differently and I choose them for how they handle program over color.
