Cytomic has released The Glue, an analog modeled plug-in based on a cross between an E and G series SSL 4000 buss compressor with some additional features.

It uses the same algorithms used in circuit simulation packages but optimised for real time use, the company says.

Additions include an attack time of up to 0.01mS and a Range knob designed to back off the compression to give natural sounding attacks and to limit the maximum amount of compression applied. Also included are external sidechain support and an adjustable sidechain highpass filter.

Summary:
  • Accurate analog model of an SSL 4000 buss compressor.
  • Attack time of up to 0.01 mS.
  • Range knob to naturally control the maximum compression applied.
  • Peak Clip to optionally hard limit transients.
  • DSP coded using C++ and assembler, Interface coded using the Juce framework (C++).
  • Serial number copy protection with generous license agreement.

Meters:
  • Gain reduction meter (dB) 0 to -20.
  • Peak clip LED.

Parameters:
  • Threshold (dB): 0 to -40.
  • Range (dB): 0 to Full (-oo).
  • Makeup (dB): 0 to 40.
  • Attack (mS): 0.01, 0.1, 0.3, 1, 3, 10, 30.
  • Ratio: 2, 4, 10.
  • Release (S): 0.1, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1.2, Auto.
  • Compression In (Switch): On, Off.
  • Mix (%): Dry 0 to Wet 100.
  • Peak Clip (Switch): On, Off.
