So I spent some hours now twisting those knobs and listening how this compressor works. And I must say it can work with any type material you throw at it.

Front panel is clear and easy to navigate. Potentiometers are best in class, smooth, small stepped so it's easy to recall for sessions.

Some say it's very transparent compressor and yes it is, but it can really xpress your sound in many ways.
Yes, it doesn't colour your sound and it's a good thing.
I don't need any colour, I have all colours I need from my analog modelled synth instruments, preamps, tape emulations, distortion plugins and all analog modelled stuff. I need clean, universal sound source controller that can glue, shape my individual sounds or buses. And if you need some more power there is "Warm Mode". I tried it on some material and did't wanted to switch it off!

Pros:
1. Build quality. It's Elysia guys, Germans... Hand crafted, and tested in house.
2. Very compact unit. It sits perfectly on my table and easy to reach.
3. I removed 90% of my vst compressors. This is my "Swiss knife" now.

Cons:
1. Now I need more money for more qubes - xfilter and karakter. :(

Ottimo compressore stereo. Provato sui buss di batteria , chitarre ecc. e sul master buss. Apre e controlla il suono senza snaturarlo. Sensazione molto più tridimensionale rispetto ai migliori plug in. In tracking da usare con moderazione essendo un VCA giusto per controllare i picchi di segnale in modo da far lavorare bene poi i compressori "colorati" dei vari plugin. Le funzioni side chain filter (passa alto) e gain control limiter sarebbero da mettere obbligatorie per legge su tutti i compressori. Va studiato con cura avendo molti parametri ma ne vale la pena. Un plauso ad Elysia che produce hardware originali con la propria filosofia senza copiare
