Favorite/Most Used Plug-In Compressor?

Forgive me for posting about this in two forums; I asked this question in "so much gear...." already and received some good input but would like to know what people in this forum like and use.

I have demo'd:
Waves compressor/limiters (Diamond Bundle) .... not too impressed (JMHO).
McDSP CompressorBank LE ....
PSP VintageWarmer .... I think this is my favorite so far.

Any opinions on these and other plug-ins compressors would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a bunch,

J.D.

For the 2 buss the PSP mastercomp is one of the best.

Other then that I get a lot of mileage out of Rcomp and the URS comps.

I am wondering why nobody seems to use TL Aggro. Am I the only one? I found it to be a very good compressor for a plug-in. (it's the plug-in that remind me the most the Purple Audio MC76 I used to work with). I also found the Chandler plug-in to be very good with a lot of character (but not very versatile).

Tony, awhile back in another forum you mentioned that the UAD plugins were about to be replaced with new product (perhaps that runs natively?).... Can you elaborate on this or does anyone else know about new, PCI-card-free, plugins from UA??

Thanks

Absolutely.
And don't forget the UAD precision limiter for mastering.
Their Multiband compressor is awesome for fixing harsh, midrangey vocals.
