Keeley Bassist... Simple, effective, transparent. It's like having a compressor/limiter do what it needs to do without being obvious.
There is a peak light to go by.
Call me crazy but if that's really your only complaint about the M87, have you considered replacing the knobs with a wider diameter? From photos it looks like they just pull off - push on.
I LOVE the Accountant (it's my "if I only take ONE pedal" pedal), but it isn't at all transparent, especially at the limiting compression ratio. Even at 3:1, it adds a bit of coloration.
When I need clean/transparent limiting, I use the Aguilar TLC.
What the Accountant does do is kick in SUPER fast (the attack time is apparently 1/2 the time as the TLC's fastest attack setting), so that 3:1 might still work for the OP. I'm just not sure it offers the control they're looking for.
My current compression go-to is the Orange Kongpressor (optical). So smooth.
A couple dark horses to consider: Broughton Apex, Schalltechnik Pumpernickel, Maxon CP9Pro+.
