I think your music needs a kind of finesse to it and to be more stripped back, to hear the differences better, if you have a crazy busy mix with tons of stuff, maybe you will not hear much of a difference. In my opinion after a few years of experiments and the ears hearing over and over the differences which are kind of subtle, i think the plugin compressors deliver a bit of a "hard sound" on the master buss, difficult to describe...but when i use the analog compressor, i hear that the sound is a bit more pleasing, as if the sound is not "SO hit with limiters" ... when using same gain reduction. The difference is subtle though and nobody will say the track sucks because you used this vs that, only if it is an amazing production with superb mixing and sounds in it, you will probably take advantage of the analog.
