Lives for gear
Here are two very different audio examples with before/after to show the quite incredible smoothness and lack of distortion for this compressor.

First example is a basic dry drumloop that I smash with 10 to 1 ratio to completely reign in the transients and keep the drumloop gelled together.

2nd example is a delicate little piano piece where I used deep threshold, 4 to 1 ratio with over 12dB of gain reduction. Soft knee. This helps set the piano in place (as it would have to be within a larger mix context) and bring out the delicate nature and the reverb.


Added 3rd audio example, using the DeHarsh side chain option in the plugin. This demonstrates how it can clean up harsh mids and upper mid transient spikes while adding glue to a mix.
