This what i had in mind too . Have you wondered what goes into modeling , testing ...
Well here s a video that will make you wonder more

No inside shot.
No easy example phrase for A/B comparison.
The kick sound is very different and not even close.
Anyway no software compressor correctly simulate this aspect.

Hey All, this is Andreas, I'm the Product Marketing Manager at Softube.
Thank you for all the great feedback and comments in this thread!

Regarding the new video we released, that is being discussed here, we wanted Jacopo who modeled the Germanium Compressor to explain shortly what went into modeling that unit.

We're interested in doing more of these kind of videos, I don't know what to call them, behind the scenes maybe?

Anyway, I would love to get suggestions from you on what you would like to see in a video like this or if you would like to see another type of video.

Let me know!

Cheers and Stay Safe folks!

Hi Andreas, thanks for dropping by and chatting with us. Personally I enjoyed the "get to know the devs" vibe of the video – Jacopo seems like a very cool dude – but I agree that the of the video sounds more like it's going to be more technical than it is. Both angles could make for fun videos; I think this is just a case of a less than ideal title.

Love the comp, by the way, I think it sounds amazing, it's unwieldy for sure but it sounds so good, and it's surprisingly flexible.

I haven't demoed this yet, but I watched a review on Mixbus TV the other night.

Totally blew my socks off, despite YouTube's lossy audio format.

Hubba hubba.

What demoing this compressor taught me was just how good Softube’s Harmonics plugin actually is.

I just finished mixing a lively, colorful jazz EP using the Germanium on the mix bus, and it worked brilliantly. I started the mix with an excellent VCA style compressor on the master and was initially satisfied with that, but on a whim I swapped it out for the Germanium and was thrilled with the sound. The action, the drive, the bass boost - it all worked perfectly.

I also ended up using it on the snare and on electric piano in parallel with the germanium drive slammed. Lots of positive feedback from the band on the snare, drums overall, and electric piano specifically.

Great plug. Wild and hard to control at first, but so simple and so so tasty.

I would pick the Distressor over this, either the UAD or Slate.

The UAD Distrssor is a great tool. Usually works when no other comp seems to fit the bill.

I love this compressor!
I shouldn’t of taken it for a test drive... bought it after a few hours.
It’s not like any of my other compressors, that’s how I justify my purchase

One of the best compressors I have heard in a while. After El Rey from AA, this one is a beast of tone! IMHO the best softube plug in a while !!
Good job !!

I agree with this statement being one of the best Softube plugin. And one of the only software compressor that convinced me (I can count them on the fingers of my hand).

If I wanted to be properly gearslutzy, I'd say it could be perfect with oversampling
