THIS THING IS AMAZING. I worked on an AWS console for 5 years so I am very familiar with the G BUS style of compressor and this in my opinion blows it away. The sidechain / tilt options are so intuitive and musical, the THD breaths life and vibe into any thing you put it on, the mix knob is a godsend and the instant, total recall makes it second to none. As a modern mixer / producer I may have to open 3/4 tracks any given day for tweaks, additions etc. I waste ZERO time recalling. Just open and go! My only complaint is that I did not find out about WesAudio sooner. I will be adding one of their EQs to my mix bus sooner than later and will keep an eye out for any new 500 series offerings to come! I did have a slight issue with my first unit I received BUT it was promptly replaced with great customer care from the people at WesAudio and VK. Highly recommended. Game changer no doubt!!
