Well what can I say about this new compressor plugin from Klanghelm?
In short, everything! Finally an in the box compressor that sounds like an analog compressor. No seriously this thing just plain rocks on almost any material.
There are 3 compressor models included everything from a dense thick sounding 50's Vari-Mu through to an eary 60's '176' rock and roll compressor type to a custom Klanghelm compressor design that gets very close to an SSL G type compressor .
This thing slays on vocals, bass, guitars and drums you can use this on literally any material, the CPU hit is great in normal mode and moderate with the HQ mode enabled (more accurate emulations).
I have never been happier with an in the box compressor plugin. Tony has outdone his previous work with this one. Highly recommended and priced very affordably.
I mixed and mastered a full album for a client of acoustic material and this allowed me to really nail an organic and fat / dense analog sound on that album.
A word from Tony at Klanghelm:
MJUC is the most effortful plugin to date. It took almost two years of extensive, dare I say "excessive", research and development. To create MJUC I've researched and analyzed each and every variable-mu* implementation I could get my hands on to get the best of tube compression into a single processor. In order to do the diversity of this compression topology justice, three different models have been built. These are kind of a time travel though the history of tube compression to capture the essence of each generation. Each model has its own dedicated signal path and dedicated control set. If desired you can tweak the overall tone and saturation of each model with the unique TIMBRE and the DRIVE control. DRIVE controls the load of the input and output transformers as the saturation of the tube gain stages, if applicable. The TIMBRE extends MJUC's use as a tone shaping device.
