I also did a quick comparison today where I calibrated the Glue and the Duende native Buss comp with a sine wave so that they did the same amount of gain reduction at a 4:1, 10ms Attack and auto-release setting. When substituting the sine with real music program, the Glue had a significantly different amount of GR (about 3-4dB more GR) going on. When adjusting the threshold on the Glue to achieve the same amount of gain reduction, the sine test showed that the thresholds were at very different points....I guess these things are responsible for the Glue to sound like an SSLish but still different compressor. Maybe it´s a different knee, I do not know...
