Nice, simply nice!Sep 17th 2012
First I tried the PIE compressor on single tracks such as snare drum and toms and I was astonished. If you want to, this compressor really can really add punch to these instruments. Moreover, the PIE compressor is a good choice for vocal stems and even stereo mixdowns and premasters. The VU meter is something needs getting used to, though.
