Flux Alchemist is incredibly powerful and sounds great. Probably not for beginners as it's very complex and tweakable, but in the hands of an expert - wow!

Check out Fabfilter Pro-MB.

Only used it with Auria on iPad but apparently identical to its AAX/AU/VST - does what its supposed to with a great interface.

BlueCat's MB7 is a solid one as well as all those mentioned. The key to success lies with the operator. Any of them CAN do a good job if tweaked right. All of them can be AWFUL just as easily

Did you mean MB5?

MB7 can act as a multiband compressor only if you load compressor plug-ins across the bands. By itself, it has no dynamics control aside from gain sliders.

I actually use the MB7-2 as a multiband compressor but I have that inside Patchwork with a TRacks limiter and Soft Clipper after the MB7-2 to catch the overs. The MB7-2 is set to 4 bands and has the TRacks LA2A emulation in each. Like someone said earlier - be careful as things can very quickly get out of hand with this setup. I did this because I find it a bit easier to deal with rather than all the settings one needs to work with in MB5.

I find when doing compression there's certain types of hardware I want to use an emulation of and this setup lets me do that with relative ease rather than trying to figure out knees, slopes, etc.

I have been using FabFilter Pro MB lately. McDSP ML4000 is very good too.
