Works like the real one ... sounds awesome
WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!
I can honestly say this thing has changed my mixes in a huuuge way! Its sound can be subtle or extreme depending on your settings. It's so good I'm thinking of getting another DSP octo-core. The Fatso is demanding on the dsp. but you get what you expect from its processing. I own some of the best UAD plugins and this plugin made me feel like I could've have done without some of the compressors I bought. They're all great but the Fatso is quite unique. :-) It does what it's supposed to!
Mr Bombastic, baby fantastic!
Bombastic in all the right places. This thing’s got power. You can drive it quite hard, probably beyond the needs of most but the capability is there. I like the ‘warmth’ button feature, gradual clicks simply get you to the level of warmth you want. This feature is in addition to the regular dial knobs and doesn’t have to be used but I really like it—instant warmth!
If you want a compressor, put this on your must try list.

Cool plugin. They can pump any track. Add ribbon warmth and saturation. My score is 5 out of 5.
This is simply magic on a drum bus. Worth it for that alone for me.
I bought this because I needed to fill the '4 items for the 3 price' offer, on a whim, and LOVING it. adds so much more than just compression. I use it now on almost everything for a nice thick warm sound.
Good with drums, guitar, banjo, but not for everything.
Brings A Vintage Vibe
I was looking for a way to turn my modern sounding drum loops into an early 70’s singer/songwriter vibe. This really warmed things up in a musical way.
Does incredible things to the drum bus
Just makes drums sit really nicely in the mix. With this you can carefully adjust how much transients get tamed. The tranny section is really useful for translation onto small speakers too as it brings the harmonics out of the low frequency information
Essential for every engineer
When things get thin call on the fatso! Loveeee it!
Great Parallel Drums Compressor
Versatile on the mix bus for in your face aggression, drums bus, and my favorite implementation compression on a parallel drums bus and tucking it back in. Also something Andrew Scheps does on a lot of his mixes. He calls that P Drums bus: Fatso.
Suono caldo ed in evidenza
Da avere, ottimo su Voci, snare, guitars and more
Glue and shine
Fatso is a great plugin, it gives the missing glue and shine to my drum bus, or to basically anything.
Great on drums and bass
I really like what it does to the drum overheads, bass guitar and parallel snare processing.
