This is a MUST have, strictly speaking of the sound quality, this compressor is an absolute BEAST. One step closer to hardware quality ITB. I understand why people are annoyed, but they're missing something... The fact that you can now take your UA plugins on the road, without your HW! And..UA have given me an array of my plugins to use on UA connect. Magnificent plugin and a step in the right direction. 5 stars.

Capitol Mastering Compressor does not disappoint. Best gear!

Capital Records is known for the best in recording. I jumped at the chance to own a piece of their iconic gear, the Capital Mastering Compressor. It did not disappoint. The warmth of the sound took my mastering to a whole new level of excellence. Each preset has its flavour, adding a unique choice for any mix. Capital Mastering Compressor reproduces the old record sounds the warmth you would hear the best recording of all time. Best gear!

Wonderful, subtle warmth + little bit of saturation

I saw the ad for this on Instagram the day it was launched and just bought a a different compressor from a German company. But, I kept coming back, checking reviews. Glad I did as it gets used on everything, sometimes just Master Bus its very subtle, which I like.
I also like the fact it has no rival maker of the same model.
Plus UAD presets are always good and comprehensive and always cover instruments or sound situations not covered by other companies presets.
They are great place to quickly start and then tweak from.

I've been using the analog compressors from the Access analog website so far and I have to admit that the one I turn to most often is this one. ✨

Doesn't come with UAD Complete

Just invested in the complete UAD line thinking I'd get every compressor plugin, this being one I was looking forward to using. Found out it's not included, I guess because it's native only?! Please release this as a standard UAD plugin.

Fabolous sound

I find myself using this on all my groups and master. The saturator button is definitely a secret weapon and I find myself using it a lot.

Native only?!?

I spent thousands of dollars on my rig just so that this company can abandon me with the release of plugins like this?! Unbelievable. I won’t be continuing on with UA products unless this is fixed.

Nice sound, but .....

Shame about the Native Only version. This tells me one thing about UAD, they're probably going to dump their hardware DSPs in the not too distant future. Since many like myself have invested in these DSP hardware units, there will probably be a lot of very unhappy people, including myself. If I want CPU heavy native plugins which sound great, I can think of other competitors who make better sounding plugins than UAD. But the only way to use those in real time is to freeze the tracks. The reason I got the DSP boxes was so that I can run plugins in real time, just like hardware and adjust them as I mix. Why did I bother ?......

Universal compressor

This is the simplest and easiest bus compressor I have ever used.

Capitol Mastering Compressor

A versatile, great-sounding compressor that can be used on individual tracks, mix buses, the main mix bus and as a mastering compressor. I enjoy working with him. No project of mine is complete without the Capitol Mastering Compressor. Thanks for him, great job.

Beautiful compressor and finisher

I don’t get why people are upset with this not being offered for dsp. Why would you track on a mastering compressor when there are many other options already? This plugin imparts a nice width, color and sheen to your mixes in a very natural way. Controls are fiddly, headroom knob will be your friend. Love it! Another plugin I didn’t know I needed (and I probably don’t need it) but it sounds like a record

Capital Mastering Compressor

Took advantage of the Labor Day Sale yesterday and bought the Capitol Mastering Compressor, and was able to spend much of the day fooling with it.
To begin with, it is very smooth, light and nicely gluey with some natural warmth and a little tone that dials in or out nicely.
I will often run through different sub busses at some point when mixing, looking for whatever. This compressor when placed on a track with a Pultec and/or one of the Eqs with an "air band" or some such feature for boosting at the extreme high end will very nicely rein in the harsh or nasty that sometimes can show up using those tools.
I like it and will use it. Built a strip that I saved with it kind of sitting there in the middle, just touching stuff.
It improves things.
It sounds strangely LA to me, but that is likely just the power of suggestion emanating from the name.

Amazing plugin, just what I needed to complete my master chain. I don't even care that it is native. .

If no uad , then that's some bullshyt

Yeh I said ,
Please keep the support for UAD-2, we bought the hardware so that the plug ins run off the cards and apollo interfaces. Put out a 16 core card or something
