I haven't tried it. Sorry.

I don't make enough money (yet) to justify buying the Waves stuff. But I am prepared to spend $100 if it means a quality plug.

Just wondering if anyone has already been there done that kind of thing

Excellent compressor not just for the 2 buss. Works great on just about anything. Won't always be the best choice but for me at least it's never been the wrong choice

If you use VST you should really try the Variety of Sound pluggins. Density mkII, Ferric TDS and Nasy VCS can all sound excellent on a 2-bus.

if you can save up 75 more, and buy some hardware, the FMR rnc is going to do alot better than any plugin.

Not going the hardware route. Lack of instant recall is a deal breaker.

Yes, If I were compressing after the fact that might be an option.

But a 2-bus compresser is something you setup BEFORE you start mixing.

In summary, you're reply while well intentioned is not particularly helpful.

I bought this compressor for $40 locally: MDX2200

It is much more useful than a plug-in (for me).

twisting of four knobs to recall the settings doesn't take that long.

Hi,
I like The Glue a lot, really flexible (2 buss, drums...), lot of options (SC highpass, parallel comp, gain reduction limiter, clipping...). Among the best software comps and better than a lot of cheap hardware units IMHO.
I'd be surprised you regret the purchase.

Once again, not going the hardware route for this application.

Posting that I'm not going the hardware route over and over again doesn't take that long either. Doesn't mean that I'm any more inclined to do it.

Spend $100 on the VST -> RTAS wrapper.

Now you have a ton more plugins to choose from.

The Variety of Sound plugins already mentioned are free and fantastic.

sorry, this is just plain wrong. I like hardware as much as the next guy, but you're really gonna tell me that a $200 half rack wall warted compressor will be "a lot" better than "any" plug-in comp? 2 additional conversion passes (don't even know what converters he's using) and unbalanced connections for a cheap piece of hardware is just plain silly.

May as well sum on a VLZpro while you're at it.

For the 2-buss, you can't go wrong with The Glue. Oldtimer is nice also, but for me it doesn't do it as a buss compressor.
