My Review

Fantastic compressor in hardware form. I love using the hardware on vocals and bass. The model that Universal Audio has put together is terrifyingly close. We have a pair of 160 vu in our studio and we decided to insert one onto the same channel as the plugin, matching extreme compression levels on both the software and hardware units. To see how the model holds up, we decided to use extreme settings on the software and hardware and compared. We found the level of parity shocking. The truth is that I can now sell the vintage hardware.
