Audio Damage’s ROUGH RIDER is one of my favorites (and it’s FREE!):

There are many ways to get that sound. Some of my favorites:

Soundtoys Devil-Loc Deluxe
Kush Novatron
Any SSL4000 plugin (waves, UAD) with the ratio maxed, fast attack, fastest release and threshold maxed

Empirical Labs Arousor can get you there. Softube FET aswell, but in a very different way.

Might check this one out . But there are many to choose from.
Korneff 4K LMC clone plugin
Edit : the free rough rider plugin is very good also

If you have Acustica Nebula, then Tim Petherick’s Complex Comp (ADR Compex) is a monster.

Kornef Audio Talkback Limiter is really worth checking indeed. Feeding it with padded signals that don’t reach the threshold (fixed at -24dB FS) sound pretty fantastic too, even if it’s theoretically not doing much
