works REALLY great!
i love simple plugins like this, a couple of touches and boom!
works fantastic on drum room tracks.


I'm a metal Vocalist and an audio engineer Usually I'd have to run my vocals through multiple compressors but with gain reduction I no longer have to do that it has sped up my work flow. The plug in is amazing I love using it greatest investment I've made in a while.

Gain Reduction is excellent on vocals. If you need your vocals to cut through, Gain Reduction delivers. It's easy to dial in and will add that magic sauce that's everyone wants.

What I want… but .. there’s one thing

It does it’s thing, and does it really good BUT the lack of attack, release and ratio was making it useless for me on a vocal with strong sibliance and some mouth clicks and sounds it did not work at all. Just maked all those sounds very prominent. Sure I could treat those thing before the JS plugin but then I rather go with my usual way to deal with problems like that .
