Oh yes, my good heavens, I typed "Areena," which is a reverb plug-in, and I shall now make up for that by posting a link to a brand new vintage-y compressor.

It's said not to be a direct emulation of any one of them, but those familiar with the breed will figure out pretty quickly from the front panel that it's an LA/2A workalike in some respects. Has an adjustable attack and release, though.

I've been auditioning it in place of HBC on my busses, and so far....yeah.

Yep, GUI looks like an LA3A hybrid or something.
*Haven't used it, cant attest to it beyond what I see at this time.

No external sidechain input as far as I can tell, but otherwise might be a good freebie to add to the list.
(The "sidechain HPF" knobs adjust a filter on the internal detector circuit.)
