TDR Feedback Compressor

[Image: CompressorFull.png?9d7bd4]


A carefully designed RMS-based feed-back dynamics compressor. The processor is dedicated to sum/bus compression and operates very smoothly – even under difficult conditions. The plug-in is the result of an intensive study about the musical behaviour of “classic” feed-back compressor designs. However, it has conceptually nothing in common with “pseudo analogue”, “vintage” or similar buzz words. This is a proud digital processor, made with lots of love and care. Smile
Notable features

    Typical “Feed-Back Compression” sound and behaviour.
    All relevant calculations are done at 64bit precision.
    Bit-transparent differential oversampling structure (only the “wet” part is actually oversampled).
    Internal re-sampling via high quality linear phase filters.
    Advanced stereo-linking (reduces audible cross-modulation).
    Adaptive integration time RMS detector.
    Freely adjustable compression knee.
    Blend between the original and compressed signal.
    Optional side-chain 6dB/Oct high-pass filter.
    Optional low and high frequency saturation.
    Optional velocity-based auto-release (dynamic adaptation of release shape (!) and timing for transparent gain reduction).
    Latency compensated parallel bypass (i.e. processing not interrupted).

Known issues & missing features

    Not yet optimized for sample-rates higher than 48kHz (sounds fine, but requires huge CPU power).
    Not SSE/SSE2 optimized (i.e. algorithm could run much faster).
    “Delta” monitor mode switch.


Sieht ja schon mal sehr schick aus,...dann schauen wir mal genauer unter die Haube, ob das Plug dort auch so glänzen kann Wink
