Essentially itís a real time dynamic eq that attempts to corral eq peaks (in very small increments) so that the mastering compressor has a better change of not over-reacting to those minuscule bursts of overs. It makes for a MUCH smoother task for the compressor.

Honestly everything Izotope does is superior. Waiting for an Izotope reverb and Iíll be totally in the box
Ozone has been great, and I also like the dynamic Eq in 8. I used to have a TC dynamic EQ back with the Powercore hardware, long gone. UAD also has one, but the one in Ozone is something I almost always end up using now. Between Ozone and RX (not to mention the Insight metering), I'm an iZotope fan... Not sure they can beat the Bricasti reverb, tho :-)

Default 2 questions - Compression and DAWs

I agree with light touch compression on fingerstyle guitar.

It is well worth learning. About compression - itís not that complicated really. There are a lot of good tutorials on You Tube. I made one myself for a U.K. guitar forum - you can find it here:

This was an attempt to explain to people that had no understanding at all!

There are some wonderful low cost compressor plugins available.

Have a look at Klanghelm at https://klanghelm.com/contents/main.php

Their MJUC Tube emulation is stunningly good in small doses and their DC8C compressor can be very subtle.

These are top class products at very affordable prices.

One way to help preserve more of the transients is to slow down the attack time
