In an interview w/ Sound On Sound, Rob Swire of Knife Party [formerly Pendulum] states this about the Roll Music Super Stereo Compressor: One of the most important pieces of outboard gear in Rob Swire's studio is the Roll Music stereo compressor, which is a major component of the Pendulum sound. "It feels like pushing a mix into a pillow!" Rob explains. "Which I like. You just get some sort of resistance there, which you can work off. We'll start without it, and then when it starts sounding good we'll whack that on and keep A/B–ing between that and bypass." "I love that, but I'm sure there's something that could do the job a tiny bit better. I've heard an SSL, and for our mixes I liked the Roll Music better."more

Most of the other ones we tested I couldn't stand. The API 2500 was the one other one that I liked, especially the 'Old' setting, but there was something about the top end, it made it slightly watery, it wasn't really what we were after. But I think if I had to get another one that'd be it.more
