"The side chain options are very useful and easy to engage, and the stereo imaging is amazing!"

Maor Appelbaum, Mastering Engineer

“A must have in my world. It’s a refreshing complement to the currently fashionable boxes that indiscriminately add color."

Michael James, Producer, Engineer

“From simple dynamics control to complete mix balance transformation, the Dangerous Compressor does both and everything in between.”

Greg Calbi, Mastering Engineer

“The smart dynamics feature helps address the level issue in a really great way that let’s me use less of or even turn off my digital limiter."

Jonathan Wyner, Mastering Engineer

"Transparency is not a dirty word and this compressor is full of it. It can be so gentle you would barely hear it, OR it can compress hard and yet it keeps the ...
