I know only a few of these. If someone say I want to hear an 1176 on the vocal, I know I can pull up the FET Compressor.

I don't know all the older gear and would like to know what they are all modeled after.

TUBE = UA LA2A (Comes with Fat Channel)
FET COMP = WA76 1176 Compressor (Comes with Fat Channel) - Also 'the same' as Native Instruments VC 76
BRIT COMP = SSL Bus compressor
Comp 160 = Guess is DBX 160 and Native Instruments VC160
FC-670 = Fairchild 670 Tube Limiter

RC500 = ???
VT1 Comp = ????
CLASSIC COMP = ???
Everest c100A = ???
The Tube P1B = ???




Are any modeled after the The Distressor by Empirical Labs?

The RC500 and VT1 are modeled after Presonus Hardware. The rest I am not sure.

Based on names, GUIs and functionalities, I'd guess the following:

TUBE: UA LA-2A
FET COMP: UA 1176
BRIT COMP: SSL bus compressor
Comp 160: DBX 160
FC-670: Fairchild 670
RC500: PreSonus RC 500
VT1: PreSonus ADL 700
CLASSIC COMP: Neve 33609
Everest c100A: Summit TLA-100A
The Tube P1B: Tube-Tech CL-1B

The Everest seems like a waste without the saturation and wet/dry knobs available on the softube version
