    (third party, so we can give it a try) which one would it be?

    my choice: DDMF MagicDeathEye. sounds good on everything, except vocals - haven't tested it

    softubes FET comes to mind but i guess i need something more allround tool like..
    Vertigo VSC-2 is a VCA isnt it...is it like an ssl comp with more features..?

    ReaComp... or DC8C.
    Both can be used to achieve ANY sound that can be achieved with other compressors.
    Everything else I have only to get faster to my desired goal.

    One more that thinks Cytomics The Glue is one of the most essential compressors. :wink: Best used on busses, and compressing only a few dBs.

    I also tend to praise Waves Renaissance Compressor a lot for clean compressing all kinds of tracks. Mind you, I don't really like Waves plugins. lol

    On the other hand, I could make do with only Reaper's stock plugins, too. It really depends on your skills a lot.

    So what really is the difference between all these, from a beginner's point of view? Don't they basically all do the same?

    Edit: Or rather, what would be the strong points of each of those - I know some of the tube or vintage ones "color" the sound in a special way.
