Opinions on the CL-1B plugin?

Anybody using this? I'm trying the demo and am liking it a lot, but it's pricey. Wondering if it's just the crush of a first love or the beginning of a long term relationship. I have so many plugins that over time seem to lose their sheen.

Same boat here. I downloaded the demo and thought it was one of the best software comps I've heard, but then held off because of the price. I'm talking about the whole channel strip bundle. I would want the EQs too if I got it, so I'd get the package discount.

A price drop would make it a no brainer.

great plugin...always useful imho, especially for vox and bass guitar.

I bought mine used from the classifieds, they do come up from time to time.

The compression and the tone are just right and very tweakable IMHO.
I prefer the comp to the EQs, I find good compression to be less common ITB.

I have the hardware (a Cl-1a, but almost the same)
- I can hear a difference. Especially with fast attack/release and high gain reduction.
But i still use the plugin allot.

Just digging this plug sound, no comparison intended with the hardware (wich I don't know at all!) as it may be a bit ambiguous in my previous post.
Usually set with moderate attack/release BTW.

It's the one plugin that I regret buying! I payed a lot of money for it.. all because I believed the hype!

The plugin sounds extremely bad as soon as you set it to a fast release time! With a slow release time, it's not a bad plugin, but I want to be able to use it with a fast release time, without the weird digital artifacts..

The CLA bundle gives you 3 (well, 4 actually) compressor plugins for less money!
