Numerous “designed” compressors are absolutely nothing greater than ineffective tries to get an off-the-shelf formula to match its equipment counterpart by tweaking a couple of criteria like the knee and attack/release times. However anybody that has actually worked with equipment compressors understands that there must be more to it. As well as there is.
The heritage of analog converters highly showcases the history of electronic devices in the previous century. It’s the weakness of the various designs and also elements that offer each device its special personality, and what began as technical restrictions have actually now come to be sought-after sounds. Just approximating the most obvious attributes is inadequate to grab this originality. It takes a style of fantastic complication and also accuracy to make a digital replica sound like the original with all configurations as well as inputs.
When creating FET Compressor, Softube set out to make the most accurate emulation of the most widely known strong state compressor. Instead of modeling person functions as well as putting them with each other electronically we have actually modeled the device in its whole: input as well as outcome periods, gain reduction responses loops, prejudice differences of various transistors, and the like. It’s been without a doubt the hardest venture we have handled, however we feel that the result promotes itself. And also ideally it will certainly be much easier to do it the following time (yeah right).
- Modeled analog compressor, input and output stages. Modeled everything.
- Modeled “All buttons in” mode
- Continuous ratio (even between 20:1 and ALL.)
- Super fast attack time (just like the original)
- Sweet input and output stage distortion.
- Parallel compression.
- Detector low and high cut filters
- External side chain
- Stereo with synchronized gain reduction
- Very CPU friendly
