Caelum Audio has released their Schlap compressor, available in these formats: VST3 for Windows, AU + VST3 for MacOS, AUv3 + IAA + standalone app for iOS and iPadOS. A spokesperson told us, "You've got a safe, controlled track you think you're happy with, but you have to ask yourself... 'Does it Schlap?'" Here's more details in the company's own words...
If you want your tracks to be energetic, in-your-face and bold, make 'em "Schlap". Schlap is a characterful, colourful and aggressive sounding program-dependent compressor. It takes inspiration from hardware RMS compressors of the past and evolves them into a modern setting.
The compressor uses a program-dependent attack and release influenced by old hardware making the compression sound characterful and dynamic. The RMS detection means that Schlap detects the average loudness of a signal, resulting in sudden short peaks being uncompressed so that they can attack hard and sound heavy hitting. Also inherently in RMS detection, there is a slight delay in compression which allows the initial, early transients to sneak through uncompressed so they keep their punch.
