The No.1 Website for Pro Audio

This compressor was so widely used that it later became a stand-alone rackmount unit, so that it could be used separately from the large format console. This made for even more success; a thing that led to many hardware and software clones trying to emulate it.

Lots of little tiny nitpicks, but that's what I live for....
