The Sonalksis SV 315 Compressor was easy to install and I haven't had a problem with it since I installed it. I run it with Pro Tools 7.4 and it was as basic an installation as any plug-in I have installed. I've never used the manual but I don't think you would need it unless you were having problems getting the plug-in installed on your machine. But you shouldn’t have any problems on any machine, its very easy to install and doesn’t crash. Not even on pc ( as one of my friends uses it on pc)
I run the Sonalksis SV 315 on my Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz processor and 4 GB of ram. I use it in Pro Tools 7.4 that I run with my Digi 002R interface. I've never had a problem running this plug-in on my machine and I'm able to run a few of them at once. I think that has more to do with my machine than the plug-in, but there is something to be said that I have never had an issue with it.
I've had the Sonalksis SV 315 Compressor for about 8 months and it has become an integral part of my plug-in collection. I love the way it sounds on electric guitars and electric keyboards. It makes for a thicker sound and adds a nice crunch to guitars. It is also extremely easy to use as it only has 3 parameters, making for a simple layout that is easy to understand. I think it is pretty fairly price as far as plug-ins go and is definitely a good value considering that you are getting a nice sounding compression plug-in. It also has a nice metering section that makes it easy to monitor output and compression. All in all, this is one of the better compression plug-ins I have come across and will continue to use it when mixing in Pro Tools.

The read out is very simple a click and ca mix ...*
For manual, everything is already said.
Custom settings for complete edition are trs, maybe a little too, but we do not blame the designer to do too much.
There are many things to say, but I will do yard.
If you are looking comprsseur which means it is not good.
The Sonalksis used more in the context of rhausser and standardize the gain of your source rather than to attack rcuprer toner.
It is a little greedy, so for small config, I recommend treating your track to Prior in a wave editor type lab ... before opening your mix.
Used for 3 months, every day, I do not regret it.
I work with a lot of plugs on the rock classic ... a bit of everything, and it is an indispensable tool for processing premix is superior in quality to the majority of plugs of this type.
the price is justified considering the quality.
But beware: if you want to sound like a lot of current prods with the compressor means that everything will turn you over to the plugs Timeworks or that kind of ... color but less effective ...
