I got his guy during the introductory discount phase after reading a glowing review in tapeop. If you want details then read the tapeop review for yourself, its pretty spot on. I like that its not a 1:1 distressor with additional features but a great virtual compressor with its own sound that still manages to be 100% Dave Derr. As a native plugin its a huge CPU hit and for those of you whoa re anti iLok, well? you need t break down and go iLok just so you can get this plugin. I will toelrate the CPU drag and iLok. Whatever! This is arguably the best compressor plugin ever and DEFINTIELY the best one that isn't simulating a famous piece of hardware.... because, again, its not a distressor though with a lot of effort people say they can get the to sound the same on the same source the controls respond differently and the digital detection circuit has ears all its own thata re fan fucking tastic.

What Jim said. Same story. Got it during the promo days & it was on my mixes the same day...like within an hour or so I'd stripped off other plugins & replaced them w/ this guy anywhere it was appropriate.
Absolutely love that they didn't just stop & make a digital facsimile of the Disstressor. Hats off.
