    Why The Hate?

    by C. Allrich . 4 out of 5 stars

    I'm not sure why there's so much hate for this plugin in the reviews, equating it to Izotope? good god, ugh.

    Look. There are certain tools for certain jobs, and writing off this compressor because it failed at whatever you attempted it on only shows lack of understanding of your appointed skills as an engineer/mixer.

    Do I use this on instrument busses? vocals or guitars? Nope.

    Slap this on your two-bus, and forget the presets. Set the thresholds on both compressors as needed to just "tuck" the transients back, flip the side-chain on, and flip between Nickel, Iron, and Steel to find the right "glue" for your mix. Now tell me your mix doesn't feel that bit of extra life brought to it.

    This is not a plug in for heavy hands, period.

    2 compressor in 1

    by S. Navel . 4 out of 5 stars

    I like the sound of this plug

    As I dont expect the sound of a 8000$ box to be the same as a 300$ plug

    This stuff is really good and useful
    The 2 compressor are different and you can achieve really different thing from drastic
    to gentle and subtle compression

    It s not as hard sounding as a 33609 which suite me

    The output transformer is subtle but good and the side chain link is brilliant
    Overall you can do a lot of think with that one

    the fact that it use 5 times less process power that a LA2A and a 336009 combine is good for big mixing session

    Also it s just looks great

    With the new 1176 and this one you can cover a lot of things

    Mix Bus Companion

    by J. Gil . 4 out of 5 stars

    I use it on the mix bus on mellow stuff and it's amazing. 1 db of gr on the optical, 1-2 dbs on the discrete, sidechain filter on, output tranny to taste.
    Never had much luck on harder stuff with it, but maybe it's just me.
    It can also help in mastering situations where the material needs some treatment (re-shaping/coloring) before going to my analog chain.
    I think it's a good buy. Even with so many cool plugin compressors around, this guy does something others won't.

    My Secret Weapon

    by J. Seabrook . 4 out of 5 stars

    I'm sure glad I have the plugin version, 'cause I'd go broke without how often I'll use this thing in a mix. Drum buss, parallel compression, Master buss, sometimes to squash the crap out of a crazy bass synth, and DEFINITELY on every mastering session. It seems like too many knobs but it's SO simple to use. I just wish the lettering was bigger around the knobs.

    Nun....

    by L. Puschmann . 4 out of 5 stars

    das bisher schwächste Plugin in meiner Uad Sammlung. Wenn ich durch die Presets fahre, höre ich kaum Unterschiede. So ist das wohl bei uns Produzenten Laien. Hier muss man wissen was man tut.

    I tried not to like this compressor and at first I didn't!

    by A. Sutton . 4 out of 5 stars

    Why did I try not to like it?

    1. Because it looks pretty... and usually that means that it doesn't perform well.
    2. Peter Reardon just seemed a little obnoxious to me.
    3. It is waay to heavy handed for a master bus.

    That being said, this compressor shines on vocals. It really does. I think that is its strongest application actually.

    If you would like to hear some vocals processed through this then check out https://soundcloud.com/rialety. "Steppin Out" has Shadow Hills all over it.

    Great plug in

    by R. Mead . 4 out of 5 stars

    It is a great plug in until I upgraded to pro tools 11 and now I can't use it. I wished avid had worked with other third party plug ins before they changed the platform so they won't work. I hope that UA is working on a fix so I can use it and my other UA plugins.

    Add the touch of magic you are looking for

    by J. Conlon . 4 out of 5 stars

    This is a great plug in to use, presets are a great starting point, I find it very musical, effect can be subtle or drastic. Feedback from my clients for the work I mastered for them using this was tool was the clincher for me!
    I am looking forward to my adventures with this tool in my kit.

    Compression with personality

    by P. Thompson . 4 out of 5 stars

    It does remind me a bit of the hardware. Lots of sonic character and the optional dirt & grit. Its easy to get carried away with. The digital realm needs plug-ins like these. Put it in line with your mastering software and wash the sterile out of your projects.

    by C. Zeileissen . 4 out of 5 stars

    the shadow hills comp sounds great
    but if it only had side chaining capability for logic!
