    Swiss army knife of dynamic proc

    by J. Mills. 5 out of 5 stars

    Like previous reviews, I am no longer porting out to my hardware Dyna-mites. Softube/UAD got it just right. It is so simple and intuitive to make Dyna-mites point up weak dynamics or level out the overly peaky. In addition, I used it to separate the kick and snare out of an all in one drum track from a band's club date. Just like the hardware unit can.

    Aptly Named

    by J. Moreland . 5 out of 5 stars

    I've actually recorded and mixed with most of the compressors UA makes plug-in versions of and happily use theirs instead of the real things (because they sound that good). But I've never used the Valley People Dyna-mite and God, what a sound I've been missing out on. This thing does for drums what nothing else they offer can. Kick, snare and toms pop in a way I just can't get with an 1176 (my previous go-to for that task). The attack of the drums are brought front and center and the extraneous noises stay in the background. Not pumping and breathing - popping and receding. Just awesome.

    Loving it!

    by M. Ilbert . 5 out of 5 stars

    The best thing for getting lame drums to explode!!
    And the gate works really well too.

    Well done Softube and great UAD to get the Swedes on board :-)

    My new favorite compressor

    by B. Joseph . 5 out of 5 stars

    This is truly a marvelous compressor. I have tried it, and loved it, on everything except vocals. I’ll be taking the final plunge and strapping the Dyna-mite across my vocal today. This compressor is a diverse and truly useful tool for my arsenal. Nothing but fun!

    Producer/songwriter

    by C. Mcdonald . 4 out of 5 stars

    I love using the Dyna-mite compressor on my Clavinet parts it really helps bring out the attack. The sound I get "pops" out and lets you hear the groove with the bass player.

    a wonderful gate/expander

    by F. Pilz . 5 out of 5 stars

    As i´m mostly doing narration, the Dyna-mite does a wonderful job as a gate/expander.
    Works really great and sounds very natural.
    A bit expensive using the Dynamite ONLY as a gate, but playing around a bit will show, what else it could do for me :-)

    Always wanted one of these gems

    by C. Soulos . 4 out of 5 stars

    It captures that late 70s LA sound I always liked.
    Works on el pno and gtr too.

    My only criticisms?

    Not enough presets
    Not enough tutorial

    Cheers

    Intense tool

    by C. vonSneidern. 5 out of 5 stars

    Often I use this for gating drums; it seems to add a little "click" or impact to the sound as it opens, which is a good thing. The negative limiting is unique and should be tried for finding new sounds. I have a hardware unit of this, and I was happy to finally get the UAD-2 version for my system. The sounds you get are very useful and hardly subtle.

    new go to

    by J. Wadman. 5 out of 5 stars

    Dyna-mite has really impressed me with it´s sound from warm to kickin´...I love it´s seperation as a gate on drum-tracks, and even more its way of handling of transients as a compressor.
    somehow it let´s me work a bit more intuitive.By this I mean that I can work listening rather than having to use my eyes when mixing...
    It sounds so good that I might just build a new midi controller just for this plug-in...
    Thanks UA, great work!!

    Dynamite !

    by m. walker. 5 out of 5 stars

    Had a coupon and Dyn-mite was on offer so took a chance on it. Wow ! Now my go to drum smasher. The gate is great too, doesn't sound too much like a gate if that makes sense. Good little thing, use it all the time.

    Valley People Dyna-mite™ Plug-In

    by K. Boaten. 5 out of 5 stars

    For a guitarist who specialises in the acoustic guitar I couldn't have hoped for a better plugging. It brings out the percussive transients without making the guitar sound harsh. Love it

    That is the 'leathery thwap w/ punch' I've been looking for! It knocks!!

    by C. Mileski. 5 out of 5 stars

    I'd just bought a lot of new UA gear so I'd a bunch of coupons to use. On top of the Holiday sale Id enough to get 3 plugs Id been putting off - 1081, Trident & LA3A -meh, I had to use or lose the coups. I truly like what the 1081 & Trident offers despite being old but admit to picking the LA3 preemptively 'cuz I sense a mkii soon, which will be NICE & now know the discounts for 'mki' owners. Then another coup from UA showed up, ugh. Well, Id been curious about the ValleyPple. I tried it. WOW If u want that Andy Wallace kick sound, this is it! Listen to FNM or J. Buckley & u know THAT kick sound. Ive been trying to get other comps to do that sound 4ever. I nearly missed this for $49! Its 1 of a kind, LOVE IT! it'll get used plenty. 12.30.15

    Lords of the board, start your engines

    by L. Carlozo. 5 out of 5 stars

    The Dyna-mite is like the biker who shows up at a lumberjack-beard hipster party in black leather gear and somehow pulls it off with style. It can purr, but it's also an aggressive monster that has its own smack-on-the-head take on compression and gating. I find it satisfyingly unique and fun. It does not pussyfoot around, and is a spectacular candidate for sonic abuse of all kinds. I'm just learning how to tame it. More likely, it is looking for a way to tame me ... and force yours truly out of the way as it does its thing.

    DYNAMO

    by A. Lawson. 5 out of 5 stars

    Must have plugin

    by . . 5 out of 5 stars

    This plugin has the fastest gate that I have ever heard from all the Uad line up. You can sneak a gate between each word especially in rap with no artifacts. Then the best part about it is the different Twack it has different from the dbx 160 and sounds a little punchier especially on snares. Basslines can poke through the mix with this.

    That's why I purchased it today. Simply analog
