Two colorful compressors in one
The Lindell Audio 354E precisely replicates the distinct behavior and rich sonic character of the 2254E and turns it into a flexible 3-band compressor plugin. With Nuke mode engaged, you can radically shape and compress individual tracks. Turning off Nuke mode results in lighter, more nuanced compression that’s suitable for mastering or surgical mixing purposes.
Shape the tone of drums, electric guitars, and rock vocals
The 354E sounds great on drums, electric guitars, and rock vocals. Use it to subtly control or dramatically reshape tracks for maximum size, punch, and bottom-end weight thanks to three independent compression bands (Low, Mid, and High), Nuke mode, and its Niveau and high pass sidechain filters. With an adjustable attack time as fast as 2µsec (two-millionths of a second), the 354E is capable of clamping down on the most unruly sound sources.
Classic compression from smooth to severe
Using Nuke mode is like throwing TNT on drum room mics. Explode room ambience and make your drums pump like a jackhammer. Shield bass frequencies from compression using the built-in filters and then dial in the sound of your lows, mids, and highs using the ratio and gain controls assigned to each band.
Gentle enough for mastering
When you turn off Nuke mode, the 354E takes on the nuanced behavior needed for buss compression and mastering. Use a gentle ratio setting to glue your mixes together. Kick in the Niveau filter to add punch, fullness, and weight to the bottom end of thin mixes. Use the 354E’s mid/side mode to compress hard-panned guitars without affecting your kick drum, bass, and lead vocals. Finally, A/B your plugin configuration settings to confidently finish mixes.
