It’s for real
I don’t notice the difference from the hardware and if you can good for you but to me it sounds and reacts as I would expect the hardware to. The real point is who cares if the end listener likes the song and whether they know or care if you used a plug-in or not. Save yourself a couple grand if you’re like me and can’t afford 10’s of thousands on outboard hardware. This one is a must buy.
Best Compressor for Vocals
I use this on all my lead vocals. Definitely one of the best plugins to have!
I was crazy about the Distressor. I was very surprised by his harmonic distortion in the right measure, especially in the vocals and drums.
Good for vocals
read some really good reviews and thought I would give it a try. It is really simple to use and makes it easy to sit vocals where you want them in the mix
Amazing sound on this plugin definitely can hear a huge difference. Really love it.
İts a magical compressor
Great valueable sound and texture
The perfect compressor!!!
THIS! This right here is my go to plug-in anytime for compression. Awesome in every way you wanna use it.
What more can you say!!
This is the best emulation of the hardware unit I have ever used.
Killer on drums
Amazing on drums is the killer feature of this plug-in . Also good on bass and guitar but I always have it on drums since I bought it.
Of all the emulations I've tried, Distressor UAD is the best!
