VST Compressor

Download the VST Plugin (version 0.7 - 23/05/2010 - 188kB) :

For the reason that the plug-in development uses the JAVA framework you need to have an installed JAVA Runtime Environment.
If you don't have the JRE (JAVA Runtime Environment) installed then you'll get it here:

Plug-in Installation:

Windows VST:
Just unzip the dedicated ZIP-File and copy the plug-in folder into your VST plug-in directory.

Input Gain:
Adapts the input signal level for the compressor stage. There is normally no need to use that control as long as the input signal is correctly leveled.

Sets the level from where the signal gets compressed by applying attenuation defined by the ratio.

Compression factor (1:1 - 10:1).

The attack time range goes from 0 - 30ms to allow transients to pass the compressor without getting attenuated.

The time the compressor takes to go back to a gain value of one (0 - 2s).

Gain Reduction:
The indicator shows the amount of gain reduction for the chosen threshold and ratio.

Make Up Gain:
Compensates the gain reduction caused by the compression process.
