The sound of this compressor is great. It has 4 fundamental modes in which you can run it (my personal favorite is the "Crispy" mode, it brings shine to the source in an instant).

I also really like the feature that you can put 3 instances of the actual compressor plugin in serial, means you can even create your own costumized chains consisting of different compressor modes, which is awesome.

Big shoutout for the VST2 compatibility, the auto-gain and the Dry/Wet parameter.

But there also are some disadvantages.

1. NO GLOBAL CONTROLS - Depite the amazing fact to chain up to 3 compressor instances inside of the plugin itself, you don't have any global controls to control all of them at once.

For example, I can dry/wet each individual compressor (which is super) but at the other hand, I can't smooth out the whole chain because there isn't a global Dry/Wet parameter provided.

Also I am missing a global BYPASS to compare the output with the input signal properly. At the moment, I only can bypass single compressor instances. And if I need to use a lot of A/B comparison, this will cost a decent amount of time.

2. Input/Output Fader has no meter - In some cases it can be useful to have a meter for the input and/or output signal right in the plugin. This also would give better help for using the THRESHOLD parameter.

3. Switching of the instance's position is not possible. - This could be a nice feature for an updated version. If you use all of the 3 instances for example, one cannot switch compressor 3 with 1 or compressor 1 with 2. That could really change the sound a lot.

4. Manual is not directly accesible from inside of the plugin. - A rather nit-picky one but worth to mention nonetheless. The manual lies in the downloaded installer files, but can't be accessed anyhow from inside of the plugin. Of course, the number of parameters T-Compressor has is fairly no so much, but it could give some help understanding the plugin for the ones who come new into it.

In short: A good tool but 4/5 stars because there is still place to go upwards.
