Here's a look at everything included in this bundle:

The result is a powerful dynamics processor, teeming with character and delivering sounds that can't be achieved with analog optical compressors.
Brainworx bx_rockrack V3 guitar amp modeling plug-in (VST, VST3, AU, AAX Native, AAX DSP) provides boutique tube guitar amp simulations that sound and feel like the real thing, with 8 famous amp models and 40 impulse responses in one plug-in.

iZotope Neutron Elements (VST, VST3, AAX, AU, Standalone) features futuristic, assistive technology and four fantastic-sounding audio processors: Compressor, EQ, Exciter, and Transient Shaper. Like having a virtual assistant, Neutron Elements will listen to your audio, identify instruments, and offer custom starting points for your mix decisions while leaving the creative control to you.
Klanghelm SDRR2tube (VST, AU, AAX) can be a saturation processor, a compressor, an EQ, a bit-crusher, or a subtle stereo widener to add warmth, depth, and character to your tracks.
