After using this Plugin for years on every master i did, i might as well share a bit of my oppinion towards it:
This Compressor is on the clean side so if you were looking for more color for your sounds, i suggest you look somewhere else. And that is exactly why i love ReaXComp so much. It's the same with Cockos singleband compressor ReaComp: It's very clean and exactly working and can do everything you would want it to do.
In ReaXcomp you can even do ratios going direction "expander" which i think is an amazing detail.
It uses very little CPU over here and my system is really slow. I guess thats because its not emulating anything but is only calculating the volume changes.
There is all features i would want in there like: feedback detection, auto-release, freely definable bands, changeable Kneesize,.
Finally i can't see a better free Multiband Compressor out there, even if i had money i wouldn't consider buying one when there is such a good one like this.
Funny to see that noone else has ever "reviewed" this one, i hope i'm just a starter for more (and better) reviews :) I guess quite some people consider this a "secret" weapon, but i can easily imagine more people falling in love with this one...
Oh and i LOVE the input-output meters!!! well so i do in reaper in general :).
I could understand that some people addicted to using fancy GUIs are scared away by the looks of this one but thats their own problem i guess...Read more
