Okay, finally got both units playing together. Its right regarding the tracking issue. With applying the same voltage everywhere the tracking is not too well. BUT! One gets them playing together pretty well. See the following graph. Units are linked and with the same setting. Input Signal is a sweep of 10 seconds. GR is about 6dB

When the units are NOT linked the tracking is a bit more off in the high frequencies. This sweep is with +4dBu and maximum GR applied.

Hi,

I made some samples for sound comparison. I used the files from the gearslutz compressor comparison and some drums sum I had laying around. If anyonw has some nice vocals I would add them.
You can find the original samples and a compressed version here.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rghwgzklk1wcvdu/AAB6aEX54cnTxUjhLUwzZPpHa?dl=0

I compressed the mixes with 2:1 @ -3dB GR.
I compressed the the drums with 6:1 @ -6dB GR

Really curious what you think.
Best,
Falk

In the LA23 drum sample those cymbals are much more present than in the original. More lively after compression. But still musical, not artificially sounding.

I've only had a chance to listen on my iPhone speaker, so I can't pretend to have serious meaningful input, but in that listening context, the mix seemed to have a nice, gentle glue to it and maybe a touch more presence through the compressor.  I had a harder time picking out the difference on the drum track, but I'm 100% certain that the phone speaker is to blame for that!

Thanks for the samples, Falk.
Are they 100% level matched? The mixes sound a tad louder. Especially obvious on the dance track.
But I like what I hear.. the compressor brings out the mids a bit and adds a nice sparkle or "expensive sound"
