Low key incredible usage!

I had other versions of this plugin but with the UAD manual giving such precise and useful info I love this version the most! Such a versatile comp that sounds amazing!

When it works, it works.

I believe this is the first 5 star I have ever given to any UAD plug that I own. Having used this plug for about two years, I believe it's a worthy tool that gets the job done. I have tracked vocals with it in Unison, as well as used it in a mastering chain post analogue Buss Comp and it worked its own magic at the right settings. I have tried it in mixing and I have not found a real use for it in that arena compared to other tools in my arsenal. When you find the sweet spot in your use case, you will understand what I mean by it works when it works. I am reviewing as a plugin tool and not comparing to the real hardware as I have never used the hardware.

Worth Every Cent

If you found yourself looking through the reviews for the distressor, you pretty much already have your answer. Yes, it's worth having this in your arsenal and yes, you will probably use this on most of your mixes if not all of them. Great saturation feel, and just a positive element to any vocal or instrument.
