Cool man, I respectfully disagree though. When I had both I compared it and more often than not the UA version sounded worse than no compressor at all. Mind you that happens with the Purple too, and all other compressors... but not as often.
The Purple CAN be used subtly (It's not easy though :o) and yes in "destroy" mode it's a lot thicker and bigger than the UA.

just my two cents
