If you’ve already heard how well this compressor works with vocals, you many never be able to manage without one! Additionally the Volfram works great with drums, synths and any other sources.

Legendary FET design, two linkable channels, Wet/Dry mix knob for parallel compression

Volfram limiter is a 45dB transistor amplifier equipped with a remarkable limiter. Compression is achieved with the FET transistors. At extreme settings the Volfram adds some pleasant distortion to the output. All manipulators are 12-pole (6-pole for ratio, HPF) switches. It is a pure A class circuit.
