My limited experience tells me it's a great box that can be handy in mastering but in occasional situations. A bit aggresive and ideally you'd prefer some slower attack times. Probably more versatile in the recording mixing world. An awesome drum compressor. I wouldn't spend that much on it to have as a luxury. Unless of course you have run out of options. What is it that you feel is lacking in your current set up that you are finding trouble achieving? I'm sure there's better options but until we know what you're looking for we won't know which hat will fit best.
