Buss compressor for rock that would compliment NEVE style compressor

Looking for opinions on an analog buss compressor for rock mixes that also plays nice with a Neve style compressor (I have portico 2 MBP that will also reside on my mix buss).

Does anyone use a NEVE and SSL style compressors on the mix buss together? Curious how they like the combo. Is there another general flavor of compression I should explore for rock?

I almost pulled the trigger on a Obsidian today but thought I'd get some opinions first.

Thanks!

The Audio Scape GSSL Comp just blew my mind for the price. I have had one about a year and run it with a A Designs Nail Buss Comp and its the business for rock drums. Last week, decommissioning an old studio they had an Original SSL G-384 buss comp, I had a chance to take it home for the night and did a couple of quick A/B comparisons to my Audio Scape, The SSL sounded tired and not as bright as the Audio Scape, and with the Audio Scape units around $700 versus the G-384 which I quickly sold for $2600, I did NOT hear $1900 difference in better sound.

Very interesting. I will have to check that out. I usually figure I'm going to fork over some significant cash for my analog stuff but finding a reasonably priced piece is always nice!

Just purchased it. At that price I couldn't resist giving it a shot!

Mixdoctor or Mixwell or some of those youtube guys demoed a wes compressor (ssl style) and said this is the best of that sort. A crazy thing: it is controlable from your DAW via usb.
