Big up for Shadow Hills

Honestly , I never had the original one in my hands so I can't compare but , the work of this plug is really amazing. The possibilities are infinite and whatever could be the sound you look for, you just can find it ( with a bit of patience if you're not really good at using compressions). The very good point is that fine compressions are really powerful and transparent and fat compressions are always with an esthetic point really interesting which is rarely the case with plugs . Clearly , if I had to choose one compressor for my uad system, it would be this one.

Shadow Hills

This really is a musical compressor. I use it sparingly on particular tracks and the result is always musical beautiful and warm. It adds rather than subtracts to a track. I love it.

This sounds stunning... If you wanna to make some experiments between the three amazing will find some differences on the sound taste. This compressor is not aggressive a it gives you the sound that you need without the harmonic changes that other compressors does. In few words...if you are going to master some tracks...this guy is your best pal.

I first used this plugin as a 14-day demo on something I was mixing. Tired of the gluey SSL compressor I'm used to, I needed something that would waken up the mix of an incredibly sad song. I stumbled across the nickel transformer feature – it offered a gentle presence in the mix that I was missing. I kept putting off the purchase of this plugin to test within myself if I really would miss it. And as we we all know, time is a teller, (and so is the lady at the bank) so time told me to buy this. I learned that I couldn't live without this plugin so I bought the damed thing and I'm glad I did.
My next goal is to get the real hardware version.

Sounds the way records should!

I've had my eye on the Shadow Hills comp for some time and it surpassed all expectations! Smooth, clean, detailed and plenty of color if you want it. The dual compressor circuits and Nickel/Iron/Steel selection allow for an amazing range of sounds.

I know this is a faithful model of the hardware, but I do miss the inclusion of a Wet/Dry control and M/S processing.

All in all though, these are small lackings in an otherwise fantastic sounding compressor.

This plug in has breathed new energy into my drums as well as the master bus in multiple sessions. Fantastic sound.

A true analog compressor inside my computer!

Surprising and very realistic, the sound seems to be being processed by a real analog compressor. my masters won presence, battery channels, bass, etc., has a truly vintage sound.

Brilliant compressor

SHMC is truly an awesome compressor. From subtile warmth to heave tube gritty.
It is perfect for getting vocals level and cutting them into the mix.
I also use this at the end of the master chain to get a really nice warmth to it.

Absolutely a must have plugin for everyone.

Great for Finishing

This compressor is great for finishing a mix that is close. It does super smooth, it does a little distortion, and it has a great range of overall flavor from the three output stage options. Try one color on the drums, one on bass, another across all the instruments, and a final on the vocals. Find the spot for each of them where they get a little bigger and a little more full but still maintain their thing. Takes some tweaking, but definitely worth it.

Presence is very like the heavy feeling!

Since there is no be using the hardware of Shadow HIlls, but do not know, now, that you plan to use to mastering in the production of the new 4 th CD. But there is also when the sound is divided by fairly powerful image, sound in the fine adjustment of the gain is trimmed. So, it would still rely on the preset. It is still deep equipment, but the time it may take to master. I like a sense of presence and a heavy feeling of the appearance is very.

Shadow HIlls Plug In Vs Analog Unit

Being someone who owns the Shadow HIlls Mastering Compressor and spent 13kaud on it with its power supply, I can't take it everywhere. I've been extremely impressed by the Plug in and its almost identical. The only slight difference is it lacks the stereo width of the real thing. Like all plug ins though they do their best to recreate harmonic content that a transformer would. Definitely happy with this purchase

Beside the 1176 and LA-2A one of the best UAD Compressor emulations....a "must have" in my opinion.
Gives drums and percussion more body and punch. On the stereobus it delivers a warm, huge and powerful sound. Especially deep house and hip-hop mixes profit a lot from this compressor. Sounds like real hardware. Really magical sound!
But the best is that this plug-in is so CPU friendly. It really earns 5 stars...definitely!

Great stuff, sound... it's easy

I enjoy it, perfect for bussing rock drums and just recently tried it on a gang vocal and it was amazing. Since I hardly ever write reviews, I think I should be critical... Brainworks was kinda far off from really nailing the bottom end response somewhere in the 260hz, it gets kinda warbly in the bottom end when you really smush it. But the signature "pumping" characteristic from the attack/release is present and actually spot on. Overall so amazingly practical and I intend to put this on every drum bus from here on out.
