T-RackS Comprexxor is the name of IK Multimedia's latest mixing utensil, which evokes associations with Empirical Labs' Distressor compressor. The aim is to combine the analog sound of the classic with modern flexibility. The tool can also work as an opto-compressor when Optical mode is activated. The obligatory parameters of a compressor like attack, release and threshold are also present. The Ratio knob has the gift of being able to switch between eight ratios. The threshold is automatically adjusted for each ratio level. If Ratio is set to the highest level Max, the plugin acts like a limiter. If desired, harmonic overtones and warmth can also be added in the Color section with the two- or three-stage distortion. If required, a high-pass filter can still be activated for the coloration. An ambitious sidechain section with two adjustable filters is also included. The T-RackS Comprexxor is also capable of processing not only the stereo signal but also the mid/side signal.
Price and Availability: T-RackS Comprexxor is available now for 119 euros in VST, AAX and AU formats.
