"...ANWIDA delivers what it promises...The sound is consistently transparent, and the signal dynamic range compresses smoothly even at extreme settings. In our tests, for example, we found that the CX1V is effective in softening transients, such as from drum kits, without adding any coloration. Sometimes the transparency was so effective overall that we often checked to make sure the compressor was active...Since most musicians are usually concerned with compression rather than expansion of dynamic range, it is easy to forget that the CX1V is also an expander. However, the expansion capability worked just as well and displayed the same virtues of transparency and smoothness...In addition, the demand on CPU usage is very low, which means that on most computers there should be little problem running as many instances of the CX1V as needed for multi-track recording.
In general, this uncomplicated, straightforward compressor/expander is a reliable workhorse. It does the job it's supposed to do, and it does it very well."
