I had it for about a month in my studio. It's an amazing compressor. One of the most versatile units I ever had. Even the slightest moves of knobs give audible results, and you can go from very subtle compression to absolute madness. It can do wonders or total damage to your sound. So it's for pros only. Tube harmonics control works like a tube limiter (it sounds a bit like my PSP VintageWarmer ;) ). Decompression mode helps in restoring dynamics in a track. Progressive Time Control is like having a musical auto compressor with ability to change its behavior. In short: everything works great. The only disadvantage I can think of is that it takes time to find the sound that will stay in the mix because there is so many possibilities. I own SPL Transient Designer and when I inserted it before Kultube on a track I remember thinking to myself that I can do absolutely everything I want to the dynamics now. I had to give it back because I got it from SPL distributor in Poland - musictoolz - as a replacement for another stereo compressor I had bought that needed repair. I hope to buy it one day.
