    If you are looking for a free compressor why not just use the one that comes with your DAW? Odds are it will be just as good or better than a free one anyways

    if you want another one, WAVES C1 is great, or C4 for multiband

    ^^^ rough rider for some absurd over-compression and good distortion.


    apart from that, what t:m said. or just get waves C1 - thats what i use anyways.

    edit: haha miszt. too fast for me :D

    lol doh, should have said C1 anyways not C2

    ---------- Post added at 17:07 ---------- Previous post was at 17:06 ----------

    cracked? sounds like a good reason for it to crash

    go for the WAVES comp anyways, its tasty

    also, you might want to consider Parallel Limiting for beefing up percussion, put it in before the compressor in the chain

    Are you putting a compressor on a channel or on a bus? try sending the audio output to a bus and compressing it?

    Camel Crusher - this is free and ive known it to be useful at times for compression.
