Our regular Friday feature where we ask the great and the good at dBs Music what downloadable freebies are floating their boat.

"This is a lovely emulation of a variable mu compressor, you can begin to hear the subtle thickness it adds to the sound with no compression setting. It sounds brilliant on drums and while you can't quite get the hard hitting 1176 feel, the hard settings work great when using it for parallel compression.
"Being an emulation of a valve compressor it is a great addition to a bus channel or your overall mix bus, as it just helps to give that extra bit of texture to your mix. It does have an older brother which costs €24 and models vintage units such as Altecs and Gates which are from as far back as the 1950s! So if you have a bit of cash to spare that maybe worth looking into if this free plugin is anything to go by."
