In my studio, this compressor is great for kick or toms when I'm looking for a particularly phat sound. It is also good for bus compressing. The box's strength is that it is easy to setup and makes it quick to find out if the sound is going to take you to the "next level" or not. While I love the sound of the slow release times, I would find it more useful to have some additional fast release times to make a snare drum sound "whacky" with a ring.

Exeptional Compressor at a great price.

This is truly a wonderful sounding compressor. I'm primarily using it for stereo bus applications and in considering the purchase I found in shootouts it won or at least held it's own over compressors that were much more expensive. At this price tag it's an absolute, unregrettable no-brainer. It's unquestionably a great piece for making the dynamic range of everything in your mix play in the same ballpark in a subtle yet very musical way. Probably one of the best gear purchases I've made in quite a while.
