I love the TRICOMP. I need to stress that I needed to deliberately work to understand the controls, as they are not entirely obvious.
I mainly use it for controlling sounds that have excessive bass or treble; drum loops and synth sounds usually. In the right application, it takes the place of an eq and compressor.

I use it as a mastering compressor on the Project page for some tracks. It can be pretty extreme, so I wouldn't turn that big compress knob up very much!

I'm starting to use it on my Master Fader, kind of like a master before the master lol.
I think I'm falling in love. I'm using it in place of one of my favorite limiters (Kjaerhus MPL-1). It's yielding a much much MUCH better sound, without me doing much tweaking. I'll probably keep using my limiter for safety purposes but, honestly... this gets the job done extremely well. I'm really impressed.
