Nice-looking interface and easy to use, but I prefer their DC1A compressor. Similar idea (two knobs, a couple of modes), but feels more intuitive to me. I'd say stick with the one you prefer - you don't need both.
Super intuitive and simple to use the MJUC jr is a Vari-Mu compressor that everyone should have in their arsenal. Even if it's limited in his functions this compressor is useful in several situations. I love it with the fast setting on snares, it's also gentle and precise on vocals and acoustic instruments. I also use it when I want to add a little bit of compression to a channel strip, an amp or to another compressor, in fact, it's one of my two compressors in my "sandwich" technique (comp-eq-comp). The only way I don't use this compressor is on overheads, group of instruments, reverbs, mix bus, sub-mixes, parallel compression. I feel that with multiple sounds it starts to sound unpleasant to me and shows the limitations of the free version. That's why I'm going to buy the full version, that, by the way, has a ridiculously low price for what it does. This is a MUST HAVE. No doubt, click download and you won't regret it.
This compressor warms the sound and glues everything together. I prefer it when I want a smooth result. However it can be snappy too. I was very impressed with it and I purchased the full version a few days later. But I still use the free version often, because its two button approach works great most of the times. I use the full version when I need to tweak more parameters to get a specific sound.
it is a very good compressor and I recommend it to everyone because it is free and definitely worth trying.
I own lots of compressor plugins. Vintage emulations, modern "transparent" compressors, you name it. Some of them are extremely expensive. This is my favorite.
It's my favorite because I can almost always get it to do exactly what I want (where "what I want" is everything from smooth, invisible bus compression to transient shaping). You can tweak it to death. You can set the big four and forget it. You can run it clean. You can give it some analog vibe. You can abuse your CPU with it. You can run it efficiently. If you are insisting on the sound of some particular piece of gear, it's probably not the right thing, but on the other hand, if you know what you're doing, you can probably get it to sound like anything. In terms of parameters, expert mode is up in the same stratosphere as other "build your own compressor" plugs like U-he's Presswerk and (almost) DMG Compassion, but for way less money.
It's really a kind of DSP masterpiece, and it's insanely cheap. But don't be fooled. It is not good "for the money." It is an outstanding piece of software, full stop.
