I’ve had the honor to use Ukrainian HCL’s gear for 17 years. When I first heard what Islander does to the sound, I had to open the old mixes and mix again. The compression is warm and withstands even harder pushing. A really good addition is the saturation, which I used to get the necessary brightness for the song without eq. Likewise, the clipper provides appropriate aggressiveness when needed. Islander will be an important tool in my mixing kit.
