I agree with most of the posts. It's a good SSL buss compressor. Maybe a little grittier than The Glue. I use it on some drum busses occasionally. The GUI is terrible. I can't stand hard to read GUI. I know they wanted it to "look" like the real one, but its just hard to use because of that. There are quite a few PA plugins that suffer from that same thing. They feel a need to be accurate to the original layout. I understand it but somehow wish they would change it to a half rack space look so the knobs could be bigger.

I did my own comparison of these two compressors and agree with this 100%. In my test mix I preferred bx_townhouse as my drum bus comp and Trackcomp as my mix bus comp, but I'm sure on a different mix the opposite could be true.3ee wrote: ↑Sun Feb 17, 2019 1:06 pmTested 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! 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
