I’ll stay out of the analogue vs. digital debate 🙂

The 16T and 16VU are new compressors added to V1.5. We left all other algorithms as they were (Peak, RMS, Slow Opto and Punchbag). Whereas these 4 algorithms are our own take on different compressor types (though inspired by analogue units in some cases), the 16T and 16VU are faithful recreations of classic industry standard compressors. More info here. They took a lot of R&D work (and passion) – by no means a mere reskin!

We are not claiming this is unique (emulations are commonplace in the plugin world), but what is unique is the ability to use them on any channel, on the fly, without the latency issues and license hassles associated with external plugins.
