With over half a million downloads, the free Rough Rider compressor from Audio Damage is one of the most popular plugin effects on the planet.

This video actually illustrates pretty well just how subtle compression can be, imo.
They start out with the threshold basically off, so they are tweedling lots of values that have no affect until the sensitivity (threshold) is put into the active range.

The name "RoughRider" made me think this would be a compressor with some elements to make it gritty (like tube distortion or bit crushing, or just a very fast attack/release). I'm pleased to see that it is just s tweakable basic compressor. No knee settings, but it seems to work ok.
Free? Ok I'll bite

At least they used a sort of new shape in their flat and dull GUI design...

Reminds me of Supercharger GT from Native Instruments. I love using that one for industrial stuff.
