A version with a simpler interface and also optimized for Avid HDX systems and Venue consoles. Also available as VST and AU for 32 and 64 bit systems.

Simple, fast, powerful. A classic.

Currently beta testing.

A video comparison with a hardware unit. Just matching the sound on the fly:


Gain knob – Input gain.

Attack knob – Gain reduction attack time.

Release knob – Gain reduction release time.

Volume knob – Output gain. Comes before Mix (with dry signal. See below).

HP switch – Engages a hipass filter in the sidechain. Useful to preservate low range dynamics.

Band switch – Engages a peak/boost filter in the sidechain.

Auto switch – Engages auto-gain.

UK switch – Engages the “British Mode” which sets different dynamics and time constants for the Whole compressor.

Hot knob – Reduces the internal headroom. Useful to tame peaks after the compressor or for creative saturation.

Ratio LEDs – Set the active compression ratio. Click on a LED or drag to the new value.

Link switch – Engages the stereo link compression mode. Both Left and Right channels are compressed together, stereo image is untouched. Currently disabled and fixed to Linked mode. In Pro Tools: insert two mono instances on a stereo track for Dual mode.
