Default Tube compressors/limiters

Hi, does anyone have or know where to find any decent valve compressor schematics, primarily for a software recording studio that needs a nice hardware valve compressor.

mono or stereo, anythign would be great at this point as ive been unable to find anything

There was a tube compressor in audioxpress last year (2001) but I don't have the issue at hand to tell you the month. It was a moderately complex beast but used cheapish tubes iirc. If I find the issue, I'll post it.

I think the best is to start building an optical (!) compressor

Here's a good description of doing your own optical tube compressor, the Teletronics LA2-A:
