Compressor X is amazing. Where do we start? It is more compression control than you should need in this lifetime. Sell your Fairchild's while they still have value! (maybe that's going a little far... :)) Anyway... really... this unit has it all, I am able to emulate Urei's 1176's, VU DBX 160's, Manley variable MU's, Digital comps, you name it. This thing is amazing. Try it, you'll see.
