I've read similar comments from others.

Can anyone comment regarding what type of source material is it likely to excel on?

The unit is apparently used in some capacity on the majority of mixes. Which genres?

it's not going to sound 'bad' on anything you put through it.

if you stay out of heavy squeezing it just sounds great like Manley gear sounds.

I think if you're looking toward using more compression as an effect then perhaps its sound may not be appropriate for specific genres or particular tastes one may have accumulated.

I had the sidechain highpass mod put in ours and wow!

it made a huge difference to my ears, especially on the mix buss.

since we don't have the $$ to spring for a new flavour of stereo comp right now, the sidechain mod was well worth it and seems to have given the vari-mu some extra juice.

Plus, now I'm digging the limiter more for some reason.

a great box made even better
