Experiences With The Bettermaker C502V Compressor?

has anyone made any experience with the bettermaker c502v for mastering?

how does it sound compared to other vca compressors?

is the bm-mode a worthwhile feature or do you rather use the ssl-mode?

has anyone heard in comparison to the other ssl-clones for the 500-rack (dramastic obsidian, igs, ssl, tk-audio, serpent audio)?

It’s okay. It’s pretty versatile with the 3 different compressor modes and the nicest thing about it is the plugin recall of course. It doesn’t have the punch of an actual SSL but I haven’t found anything that does. I sold mine and got a WesAudio Dione which isn’t as versatile as the Bettermaker but it does the SSL thing better than the Bettermaker does.

Hey Dan, a friend of mine got the C502V in his studio for a demo, I will probably go and give it a go, in the meanwhile we have the chance to hear a quick pass through Pure2 ADDA loop only, and with the 502 of the mix You used for the comp comparison.

Settings: 1.5ratio, 2dbGR, Attack Medium, Release Auto, SCF80hz, SSL mode.

Lets hear what it does...
