Excellent

Probably the best VCA compressor for gluing a mix together.
Sound quality is superb. Also works on anything you run through it. Vocals, bass, drums etc
It is very clean sounding, almost to a point where its too clean. But for this, its easy to just use something else that adds more color if you're into that. I like to have the options, so for me it was a good choice in contrast with all my other gear that adds color.

Sounds so much smoother than the waves plugin! Really glues the mix together in a really clean way.

Y'a pas à dire, il mérite sa réputation. Excellent compresseur pour le mix, il équilibre les dynamiques de façon excellente, sans perturber les timbres. Simple à utiliser les réglages viennent rapidement.
Très belle machine !
Un dry/wet aurait été super…

SSL 500-Series Bus Compressor MkII
Sergiu_M, 11.12.2017
Used for mixing and mastering. Amazingly transparent. My work has reached another level. Probably one of my favorites Bus Compressor. Otherwise very satisfied! It's worth all the money.
