always a great tool to be used onto almost every track !
Naturally,not as good as the LN-version.
I often use the SE on "non-critical" tracks to save processing power.
Not as good as the 1176 LN, it lacks the colouring of the sound that the LN has. I honestly use this one only to save on the computers processing power, since it is not much better tyhan the compressors that are included in Cubase
The 1176SE is easy to use and very low in cpu power, it is my nr.1 compressor when it comes to prepare a signal for further plugin processing, that is flattening the transients of speech, voice in general. more aggresive settings i use for drums/ parallel compression.
It sounds good at first, but most of the time I end up taking it out.
