Following the “You’ll Use” ethos of their previous releases, the effects found within 3 Compressors You’ll Use are as direct as the title of the bundle: simple to use, powerful, timeless effects. Accurately modeled from the originals, each plugin offers its unique flavor of compression and analog signal path, from subtle saturation to slammed, pumping grit and everything in between. Not only do these plugins sound fantastic, but they’ve also been updated with subtle, optional modern touches like mid-side processed sidechaining and one-knob parallel compression to make great sounding audio more comfortable than ever.
