- The Creative Compressor
The mpressor plugin is the as close as it can get emulation of elysia´s creative compressor. Its all discrete circuitry and its special character have been translated into software in all the painstaking details by the specialists from Brainworx.
The plugin has all the great functions of the hardware which can be combined in many ways: Auto Fast for attack makes life easy even on longer attack settings. The Anti Log function offers an alternative release curve that can be engaged for instant pumping effects. In addition to standard ratios, the mpressor also provides negative values. Combine this with its extremely fast attack times, and you will be able to create completely new signal envelopes.
The Gain Reduction Limiter regulates the virtual control voltage and keeps even the most extreme settings under control – completely independent from the threshold and ratio settings. The additional filter is a perfect fit for changing the compressed signal in its sound character. The possibility to control the mpressor by an external sidechain input to get things grooving makes for further flexibility.
Whatever you are looking for: a high grade sum compressor, a flexible tool for single instruments or an inspiring dynamics effect processor – the mpressor delivers. Discover all the options. Try it now!
The compression behavior and the sound character of the hardware have been recreated in a complex process to match the analog model as close as possible.
In order to achieve the best results also on lower sample rates, the mpressor plugin uses an increased internal resolution.
Setting parameters with the mouse can be pretty annoying – for this reason the controllers of the mpressor can be moved with the mouse wheel easily.
Originally developed for the alpha compressor, this switchable semi automation ensures a perfect attack on the basis of the value set by the user.
This alternative characteristic of the release curve follows an antilogarithmic course instead of the standard linear progress and produces a much more audible result.
The characteristic curve bends and goes back down! Heavy pumping, backward sounds, etc. – perfect for very cool compression effects.
The mpressor plugin of course also features another popular function of the hardware version: the easy yet very flexible Niveau Filter.
You want to create frequency dependent compression or have it accented by the groove? The sidechain function makes it all possible!
Gain Reduction Limiter
This novel limiter is not placed in the audio path as usually, but restricts the virtual control voltage of the plugin instead.
System Requirements / CPU Load
With regard to its performance the mpressor is not very demanding.
