Both Korneff releases are great! My favourite plugin company right now.

It's getting a lot of love in this thread though. I agree, it's a very nice compressor. It finds its way on to group busses and sometimes a parallel compression buss. Very nice for squashing drum room mics to death with as well.

Pulsar Mu - sticky punch on drum buses and slamming vocals - it's become me go-to vocal-slammer
u-he presswerk - punchy gritty drum buses
voxengo deft compressor - pumping snares
tone projects unisum - for oozy, silky goodness
fuse audio labs VCL-515 - drum buses, oh my drum buses.

these i couldn't do without. others i can probably spare
