Your DAW's compressor may be a workhorse. On Reaper, Reacomp is very good.

Oh, I´m sorry, I didn´t realized I posted this on gearslutz hahaha :P That is the standard response there.

Still, I was afraid that was going to be the answer, since "you can´t make a hit record without a 1176 on the snare" (I read that somewhere :P), but it´s indeed more suited for percussion or maybe bass.

Guess I will have to morgage my... cell phone? hahaha
Seriously, I´m all flat out now and I live in a third world country so I´m having trouble affording them right now, but still being able to access such tremendous gear at less than 1% their original cost, just makes me happy to live in this digital era! :D

I´m slowly phasing out everything algo from my workflow.
Now I have convolution reverb, guitar cabs, console, preamps, tape machines and EQs. All I need is Tim´s compressors and maybe a tape delay, and I´m done building my 1970 studio inside my 2015´s computer! :D

Great time to be alive...

I use TimP U76 on every channel. Don't believe there is anything better out there. ;) That opto might be great too, though, if you prefer less aggressive sound.

You can use Nebula presets sampled from actual track compressors :
AlexB MFD, A5D...: http://www.alessandroboschi.eu/html/alexb/dynamics.htm
Cupwise Slick 9K : http://www.cupwise.com/fx/shop/slick-9k ... ompressor/

Not a bad idea at all!
I´m going for the N**e sound, so I could use AlexB´s MFD... Although I just went broke with 3 of Tim´s compressors, the Henry Olonga collection and Nebula Setups, so I might have to wait a while... u.u
