This is one of my fave compressors especially for mastering. I have got a few including the amazing API 2500 but this is just sublime. This new version is very good.  Also V2 stays behind and you get to choose between V2 and V3 after you install. There is a stack of improvements including the adjustable GUI and all. This can be set for just super transparency and I mean clean and transparent. Which in many high quality mastering situations where you don't really want to change the sound much, is perfect for this role. I use Punch and Smooth a lot but the others are fantastic too.

I already have MJUC, but I think this would be a great addition!

That's the other reason I was happy to see this update...to know that he's still working on things. This is his first update in almost a year. So, there's joy in Mudville tonight!

This is a really nice update. I think they did a few tweaks to the algorithms, but the main changes are to the GUI. The menu system is much better. For the price its a no brainer. I did a quick walk though of it last week here.

I noticed that they have also updated DC1A the little brother of the DC8C to V3. It is completely free, i.e. everyone can test their plugin quality!

Thanks for reminding me about VUMT Deluxe.  I have been meaning to upgrade for a while but so glad I did.  It is well worth the upgrade.  Firstly for the alternate meter contrasts with each skin is excellent.  The filters, Dynamic Eq and the Mono-iser effects are also great.  Nice to have a few things like this you can insert over your signal flow.  The ballistics of the meter movement is still great too. 
 
With DC8C I started setting up compression over whole mixes first.  It is super great for that.  Nice on buses too and tracks of course but I feel to excels over a group of instruments.  It is also cool to watch how the ballistics change with VUMT as you adjust the compression coming from DC8C preceding VUMT.  Keep them both pinned open for example.  Those 4 DC8C modes are also pretty different and you need to get used to how they all sound.  I love Smooth and Punch a lot.  The others can kick hard if you want them to.  Get into the Expert Mode of seeing all the controls as well.  So much to fine tune in there.

A maintenance update (v3.0.1) just released. The manual was also updated.
 
DC8C 3.0.1 released
Wednesday, June 27, 2018
This maintenance update fixes wrong labels for min. and max. attack/release times on the GUIs of each Easy Mode.
Also, the dynamic latency reporting has been made more robust. The Global Settings now feature two extra options, you can use if your host doesn't fully support dynamic latency reporting for both realtime processing and offline rendering. See the updated manual for details.

I already have the VU meter plugin, and was not really interested in getting anything else. With recent purchases from Plugin Alliance and Melda, I just said that I really don't need anymore.
 
But I ended up getting the MJUC compressor. I put it on a vocal and using the Mk I version I was really surprised at the quality it had. It had that great sound that the IK 670 emulation has. That smooth soothness is what I call it. For the money, it is an outstanding buy at regular asking price.
 
Thanks for bringing this up Fleer.
