I have been reading that the built-in compressor in Cubase SX2 is supposed to create some kind of distortions or unwanted effects. I don't own mega-expensive monitors so I couldn't tell if that was true.
Still I would like to try some other compressor to put into the insert or send effects of some instruments/sections when composing/mixing. Of course I started google and searched this forum and kvraudio.com, but the amount of software is baffling me. I looked into the Kjaerhus Audio freebies which sound great. The izotope Ozone mastering thingie also seems to be cool but the demo is using up enormous amounts of computing power. Absolutely unusable as insert, but great for mastering, I suppose.
Could you suggest a few other (possibly free and multi-band) compressors that are easy on the CPU and usable as inserts etc? Thanks for your help, guys!
