1 coffee or 1 bx townhouse comp was the decision... 😂

Bought it finally for $4.didnt think much of it before, but I actually like it, it has a different flavour from the other SSL emulations (UAD, The Glue, and others). Love it especially on the drum bus. It's subtle, opens space, and not too punchy just enough.

That's what the SSL Buss compressors had on them because on the actual console they were tied to the VCA faders.

WTF is that fade button?! Being able to perform ultra-smooth 30 second fade outs inside a friggin' compressor plugin is so cool!

Here a little remake of GUI, however the placement and sizes are the same. Facelift GUI is fully working.

It's always hard for me to understand how a plugin can contain high-level DSP algorithms and maths (meaning there must be some really talented people involved), and at the same time, basic stuff like the GUI looks like it's designed and coded by someone who doesn't have a clue about anything.
It costs money. Don't know how much an artist is charging for designing a GUI but hard to believe that it'd be free or even near that.

There are several programs for windows that can do it. Here is one:

Tested against DMG Trackcomp G Bus and it's very similar (since they are basically emulating the near same thing, on paper the bx one sounds more special but you can get the null test very tight) Slightly different color and attack... The Townhouse is a bit more snappy while the DMG is smoother. I like both! :tu: I give the edge to the DMG one cause the extra flexibility but from the quick test, I kinda like the bx's color a bit more
