Focusrite Compounder
stereo linkable compressor transistor very comprehensive in order expander, compressor and limiter (as Bss402), with a bonus set of low frequencies;
this compressor seems to cover everything (I've tried that machines) so there is full and effective


there are a lot of settings, it takes time to adapt, but the compressor itself is a classic and is easy to use (especially for the auto release as the Bss402 and soft knee)
engineers have ensured the link mode is a true full link to manage two channels with a single, make-up including and especially including bypass ... bravo! this is unique!
adjust the level of bass is very effective, it can really boost or attenuate the bass instead, it is very appreciable


I thought buy a mid-range compressor (I bought a lot Bss402) and miracle compressor is just a killer on drums and can compress the sound to infinity and stay musical (in fashion hard knee), and this tool fully converts the sound of your machine, this is awesome, just what I needed, this is the only compressor that I have that does not erase the low compression (TL Audio 2021, dbx 160A dbx 262, Bss 402 The Audio CX2), and anyway, the bass can expand recover and to remove; Bass Expand this is also a butchery, the bass drum tap as is not allowed, perfect for the Tek / House / Electro ...
the limiter is very useful, it is probably not the most sophisticated machine, I prefer the limiter Bss402 which is really high quality, but I repeat the compressor is really good


a week of intensive use, this is my favorite because it brings to the sound of my machines ... it is anything but a toy, which is essential as soon as we tried;
the price / quality ratio used is formidable for electronic music, I find it essential;
I regret having thought ill of the current series of the brand and not having discovered before!

Compressor, gate (Stétéo) ...
Rackable (UI)
XLR Jack (full)


Like any compressor + not hard to solve ...

Manual clear (with some good examples to tame the beast)


To me, it's a great versatile compressor (taking / Mix) ...
Hard to beat in this price range. Very good price / quality ratio
Works well on instruments to fast transients (drums, percussions ,...)
Can do anything ... Class A


I use it for about 3 years ...

I have a large number of compressor, but also versatile, you'll have to type above (Portico 5043, for example)

Does not alter the sound

Excellent, I do not understand is that the compressor is not more popular

It was to me the first "hardware" which I took seriously the purchase (no regrets)
