I bought the channel comp after trying the demo on my Mac, holy moly it's awesome! One thing I noticed though is that the gain reduction meter seems to be non functional, is this an issue that is known? The meter works fine in level mode but when the gain reduction switch is engaged it stays stuck at -20, no matter what any other knob is set at. But, incredible plugin, I was afraid that I would be buying a graphic design and that the channel strip compressor could have the same characteristics, but it is very different and has some major attitude with the bias knob engaged. Very versatile compressor. Used in series with old timer, even cooler!
