This is the best compressor ever made in software, in my opinion. Unfortunately it took me years to even become aware of Analog Obsession. When I think of all the times I could have used this compressor but didn't know it existed, it pains me. Alas, now I have it. I am so impressed with AO's plugins in general, I'm donating $10 per month to the cause, and that's coming from a guy who despises prescription plans. It's not that, of course. If I stop paying, the plugins continue to work. The point is, this developer deserves the support. There are at least a dozen plugins that I love from this developer. But this may be my absolute favorite. It is my desert island compressor now, defeating my beloved UAD LA-2, which I previously used all over the place. YALA is free. It is the best compressor for my taste. You'd be a fool not to download it.

I really like this compressor. I don't think its sound is comparable to a vari-mu compressor but it's really good. I have logic and the built in compressor offers me a large variety of typology but one like this one is missing. I use it on single instruments with a high compression rate. in this way it gives me a rich sound with tons of harmonics and a nice warmth. Great on snares, long kicks and bass. Also very handy with lead synths with high resonance. Vocals? No, not for me. If you want a free levelling amplifier the adhd leveling tool is what you're looking for.

The only thing I don't like about it is the two screws to control release and threshold. I get it, you want the look but manage that screws it's a pain. I'm not totally against the look, I like to have a good looking pluging (but if it sounds good can be just boring controls and I'm happy). please AO leave the screws and put two knobs on the right, thank you.

Julian Doe.
