    I have one and like it for some things. It has a fairly smooth sound but not much punch. It can be used for more broad strokes rather than surgery. I used to like it but in the last 4 years have found myself not using it as much. The high end is a little to hypey for my taste but can be usefull. what kind of eq are you using now?

    Sometime I use the Eqs from the Finalizer and sometimes the Eq from waves the Ren.ones.
    I'm thinking to buy the Focusrite ones, that's why I asked how the Comp. sounds.

    The last time I used the Waves Eq, TLAudio Comp. the 1176 (plug iin) and the L2.

    What do you use at the moment?

    Oh, my mistake. I was talking about the eq and you were talking about the compressor. If your talking about the plugin, then it's not really worth it IMO. I would go with something from waves. right now i use the weiss DS1 mkII compressor. Once you go Weiss, you never go back. I also have a rack of the Amek 9098 compressors that I really like. they are great for doing gentle compression but the Weiss is my workhorse.
