This compressor is definitely mastering level quality in build and sound. Using this piece is very intuitive and fun, like most analog gear but add a bit of extra fun with usb controllability. It add punch and clarity different than my dangerous compressor. I find the bettermaker compressor on my mix bus because of it added punch. I work with a lot of bass heavy urban music so low end control is important. Having the high pass feature can save a mix in cases.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
