I want another one. I've had great success with it as a parallel comp on vocals
Single or double, release one click from the fastest setting. It can fatten up even the weakest singer, and the noise floor is acceptable at pretty extreme gain reduction.
I've had fun with it on bass as well, and it may replace an La-2 or 2 here. FWIW, the Retro 176 is also super cool on bass, very 60's.
Just for full disclosure, I rarely track with either of these as they are quite heavy handed. They shine at mix time, at least for me,
