...no.

Not in the official library (yet).

We shall wait until the sampling for comps is improved. Then, we'll see more compressors (that sound more proper).

There are several programs in CDSoundmaster's RASS which are samples of the harmonic response of different compressors in various states; one of them is a 33609 I believe. However these aren't compressor programs; they are distortion programs for a particular sound (it works really well to combine a very clean and mathematical compressor + one of those programs for some mojo, for example). While these programs don't do any actual compression I am always struck by how much adding the harmonics influences the sound, giving it many of the trademark 'compression' characteristics even though no compression is really being performed.

But as MOJO_FET stated, there is still some work to be done on compression. When that happens my guess is the market will very quickly have a wide variety of new compressor programs.

I think until there is one, your best option is The Glue compressor.

+1 for the Glue. The best digital comp, for me.

Another +1 for The Glue by Cytomic. It is the most used software compressor since 2009 here in my studio.
i7 3770k :: Asus P8H77-V LE :: 16Gb DDR3 @1600MHz :: Geforce GT 520 :: OCZ-Vertex 128Gb :: WD Black Series 1Tb and Green Series 1Tb :: F*******e Liquid56 :: REAPER 64bit and StudioOne 64bit (both latest versions) :: Win 10 64bit

I agree with everyone above, The Glue is awesome.

Some other good ones I get a lot of mileage out of:
Stillwell Rocket - another really fabulous and versatile comp that I get almost as much use out of as the Glue

Stillwell Bombardier - you can get a wide range of compression sounds including rather clean/transparent which makes this one great for pairing up with RASS/RAC compressor samples (ReaComp, which is free and also has an adjustable RMS window, is also good for this)

I personally get a lot of use out of the T-Racks Fairchild 670. I don't love it on everything but sometimes it's just right. I especially like it on vocals.
