'The intriguing Choke control is an innovative feature that models the way valve compressors work to stifle transients, and it does sound surprisingly authentic. '
'Somehow it really does manage to combine the warmth and weight of vintage valve processing with the bite and immediacy of modern compression. '
'It's not just a fabulous drums compressor - Big Blue is equally adept with any other musical signal, sporting both peak and RMS detection modes.'
'It comes at you with real sonic snarl, making it especially good on up-front dance and rock tracks. It's certainly highly recommended by us.'
