Compressor plug-ins vs. outboard

    Aside from the poorer tracking capabilities, can I get a free or very cheap compressor plug-in that will function as well as a $100-200 outboard compressor? I'll be using the compressor on vocals and acoustic guitar. There is another thread in this category which gives a website for a free compressor plug but my experience is limited to the compressor in the DBX 576(which I've sold) outboard compressor; I've never tried plugin compressors. Please enlighten me......

    And, by the way, does anyone know of any plugs that actually work in Cakewalk home studio 2004(compressor plugs, that is)

  4. I go outboard whenever I can. I hit signal fairly hard to tape as is, so I usually only compress a few things during mix.
    Plug-ins make everything smaller. David
