IK Multimedia has released T-RackS Comprexxor, which they say is based on one of the most flexible and creative analog compressors ever made. A spokesperson told us, "With eight selectable curves, selectable 2nd or 3rd order harmonic saturation, high-pass/band-pass filters on the sidechain path and much more, Comprexxor delivers endless sonic flexibility, whether that's emulating classic sounds of the past or inspiring new ones for tomorrow."
Here's more details direct from IK Multimedia...
All the best in one
Comprexxor features eight selectable ratio curves representing legendary analog compressor designs and others only imagined. Each ratio selection features its own threshold setting starting from the 1:1 mode, which adds warmth without compression, all the way to the MAX setting, which is a dramatic brick-wall limiting curve.
Comprexxor can also be set to work as a traditional opto-compressor, proving why that technology is still so popular today. By simply adjusting the attack and release controls while in the optical mode, users can give new life to any element in the mix.
Inspiring new sounds
Users who experiment with Comprexxor as a distortion module will find a whole new realm of sound-shaping at their fingertips. By selecting the first ratio setting and tweaking to taste, or engaging the 4-button effect of the GB mode, users can instantly add grit and character to any track.
Comprexxor lets users add color or warm up their digitally recorded tracks in sublime ways. The color section offers 2nd order ("tube-like") or 3rd order ("tape-like") harmonic distortion with dedicated controls for adding exactly the right amount. The color engine is designed to make coloring and warming up audio easy and effective.
More sonic tools
Comprexxor also offers controls for defining sound before the signal hits the compressor. The advanced sidechain section allows users to focus exactly on the frequencies they want to process via two adjustable filters, offering a powerful and creative way to optimize compression and distortion right from the start.
Thanks to IK's 25 years of developing advanced modeling technologies, T-RackS Comprexxor manages all this flexible sound-shaping in one easy-to-use plug-in, and comes with a variety of presets to get users quickly mixing and mastering in new and different ways.
