The Variable Gm can be very transparent, with a subtle warmth and the ability to heap gain‑reduction onto a vocal or bass track without audible side‑effects.
Maybe not as fast as a Dbx 160 feed-forward VCA, but a useful shaping tool when you need to squish a fair amount, but don't want to lose all the nice top you got off the microphone.
As said, this unit has a natural inclination towards the mix bus and mastering duties, where you retain dynamic control, detail, open and threedimensional image.
