This 3-band compressor VST plugin is part of the free BuzzComp Bundle from Buzzroom which I highly recommend to anybody. I picked the GranComp3 plugin to review since it is my favourite one in this bundle. I would not use it for mastering since it can be too much coloring and I got Soniformer for this purpose, but I use it a lot for tracks as coloring is desirable to me here. Actually, apart from crunchessor (also very versatile and easier to set up) and blockfish (which has its very own character) it is my favourite track compressor plugin. I know, many people will not agree, but I rate it even higher than the Golden Compressor of Kjaerhus Audio (which is indeed a very good one). I just want to stress by stating this how much I like the sound and the versatility of this compressor. It has a sound full of character and, if you use it as the last plug in your fx chain, it is very useful that it has a (brickwall?) limiter inculded. Minor points of criticism are the lack of documentation (however, a documentation is not really needed since, if you are familiar with compressors, most things should be self-explanatory) and that not too many presets are included. I never needed customer support, so I rated it 10 in order to not bring down the rating. I did not experience any stability problems with this plugin so far.
Highly recommended!!! Make the download, it's free! Thank you Buzzroom!Read Review
