Stereo Compressor

Postby dskead » Sun Jun 03, 2007 3:11 am

A simple and effective utility, not meant to control peaks but for adding uumph

-Rms level detection
-Smoothed attack & release (no lookahead)
-Sidechain/Key input
-Meters for input, output, sidechain/key, & Gain reduction as well as a bypass (all good for getting a good setting without pumping/breathing)

try it out and lemme know if I've botched anything, or if there's room for improvement


(a suggestion for a better place to upload files would be handy too :wink: )

Hi Folks,

Would be great to see more compressor coding philosophies. If anyone has some layouts or groups to drop …

Agreed for those wanting to learn, myself included, but also it should be clear that there are good and free VSTs, for those that just want to use stereo compression.

Two that I have tested and use (out of all the free ones I could find):

and for Peak limiting:

an older mono version (if you can find it) that was freeware, of this:

Of course if you want something that is not free, there are many many choices.

On OSX I just use the apple included au plugins.
