Question What's your favorite rear-bus AU/VST compressor?

Currently using Wave's CLA-76 all-buttons-in sounds too grainy and distorted to be of any use.

Airwindows - Purest Squish
with Bass Bloom around 0,5 & a lot of Squish!

A lot of times I really dig the Sonnox - Oxford Dynamics
in Normal Mode - 4:1 - slow Attack - fast Release - Warmth around 60 %

And Sometimes Sonimus TuCo
in Limit Mode - slow Attack - fast Release - HP around 120 Hz

I'd probably steer to SKNote Disto, as it's flexible and dual mono. IIRC, Mr. Scheps uses his 1176's 4:1, not all buttons in.. I've used this technique on total of one song so not much of an expert, but it worked and got me even more interested.. Def got to dig into it some more sometime!

Edit to add.. It's cool to use whatever ratio the song calls for!

I use TimP U76 library for Nebula, ratio 4:1.

I've been using Slate FG-Stress for this, there's even a preset called "Full mix - Parallel Beast" in it which works well in my opinion, I usually set it to about -8 - 10 dB gain reduction and dial in about 20-35% of mix knob. Gives a certain "fullness" and overall rounder sound, especially in low mids.

edit: Also, was thinking about Neve 33609 type of plugin for this (for example, I have the IK Precision Comp/Limiter), might add punch / low end in an interesting way.
