Hopefully they will update the Pro version too. Bought it long ago and it could really do with a Mix knob and GUI makeover like this one.

What is special about this compressor?

As its name suggests it can be very rough, which works well for parallel blend, when you want to add some character.
Imagine similar effect for which you'd use 1176LN with all buttons in or say SoundToys Devil-Loc.
Just put it on some drum bus or loop track and try some of its presets.
Not that it's not achievable other ways, but this one is free and very nice.

This thing (at least the former two) should be really called : ThwaComp

Here for the gear

I love the character on this plugin - I don't have Plugin Doctor or anything but even doing a null test with zero compression, the sound is noticeably darker.
This is a strange comparison but it reminds me of how the CLA-3A slightly boosts mids, combined with the power of Devil-Loc (though it's still not as strong to me)

Really looking forward to trying this new version. I have been in love with this comp since the first version and choose it over many new and expensive comps for drums. It is the perfect combination of eq curve (darkening but mid boost) and over the top, crushing compression that really makes sample drums sound great. If your drums seem wimpy, too bright, too clean and lacking character than I highly recommend this plug. Thanks to Audio Damage for this super useful free plug!!

Trying a bit more lately and coming to the conclusion that this thing is KILLER! Smashing transients with 0ms attack is so good!
