Universal Audio just released a software emulation plugin of the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor for the UAD-Platforms.
Like the hardware version, the Shadow Hills Mastering Compressor plug-in offers selection of three distinct output transformers (Nickel, Iron, and Steel) — taking the signal from “clean” to “colored” and “dirty” — as if selecting from the output stages of three distinct classic analog consoles.
Lemme tell you that just sounds jummy. UAD’s marketing dept. just made 100pts on my scale of 0-100 ;-)

Separate Optical and Discrete (VCA) dynamics sections for two-stage serial dynamics control
Transformer matrix switches between Nickel, Iron, and Steel output transformers — like selecting between 3 distinct vintage console outputs
90Hz sidechain filtering for musical compression of low-frequency program material
Large, accurate VU meters provide Optical, Discrete, or Output gain views
Custom presets created by Peter Reardon
