19 Compressors in my VST-Folder are too much!
Could anyone tell me about:
- which are bad
- which have character
- which are very neutral
...mainly which to abandon
- C3 Multiband
- Nasty VCS
- Optron 3 A
- Peak Compressor

Or just, you know, throw out the ones you already know you don't use. I don't know why you need other people to tell you what is good and what you use.

'character compression' is hugely overrated imo.
I get along finde with ReaComp for 90% and sometimes use RedPhatt on drums.

Tested and I would keep them atm:
- barricade (only if the new TB version)
- blockfish (legend!)
- C3 Multiband (maybe try GMulti instead)
- Reacomp (needs an update IMO but keep it if you don't have another "all purpose" comp))
- Molot KEEP IT!!!
Antress PoloKiller maybe

I am just now discovering the genius of Antress, even though over the years I looked down my nose at his work. China or Taiwan or whatever must have some seriously awesome plugins of their own if in fact he is just some random guy plunking out that sort of work on synthmaker.
OP, what's your DAW by the way?

your hint to the Antress plugs makes my problem even bigger
Ok...then let's include them in your reduction tips!

Read the thread title again....I never asked, which compressors I should buy!

Frankly, I'm puzzled by your question. For instance, if my wife (who's a singer) is having a good day, I'll use Compassion. If she's a little cranky, I'll slap some DC8C on her. If she hasn't had enough to eat, I need to use the Rough Rider Pro. And if she just finished a phone call to her mom, I definitely need to break out the OldTimer.
I could go on, but you get the idea.
Seriously, I use about 6 compressors regularly, and I'm glad for all of them and the special things they do. Why limit yourself? (heh)
