« Very Versatile Compressor »

Publié le 08/04/11 à 21:21
This is used mainly on a Mac Pro Duo running Snow Leopard. If you are familiar with compression than you will not need a manual. This plugin has the standard compression components including hard/soft knee and the ability to toggle between Clean, Opto and Classic (which sounds like FET to me). The boys over at FabFilter really do a great job making an inviting interface. This is still quite a busy interface especially with the Analyzer window dancing around, but it remains easy to look at with big writing and large knobs and graphs. All functions are easily located directly from the face of the plugin.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The Pro-C is very solid and accurate. No crashes or glitches of any sort. As for performance, this is a great utility compressor. Both the Opto and the "Classic" add some character but the Clean channel is really my favorite, as it is quite clean and great for electronica. Sidechaining is a breeze thanks to Logic's built in GUI Header. You must select "EXT" in the expert menu on the Pro C first. Overall this plugin has been used a lot lately whenever we need compression that doesn't add much character.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a overall great plugin but the thing that stands out for me the most is something very simple....Undo/Redo buttons! Thank god some people still realize how valuable those are, especially if you have the parameters midi mapped and you accidentally bump one or have your midi controller force the plugins to match the hardware. Thank you FabFilter, I hope the rest of the Developers realize the importance of that little extra help. Not much to dislike about this plugin. It's relatively simple and does a good job. Everything about what FabFilter does is precise. The knobs are very fluid and everything flows. Kind of like migrating to Mac from PC. I have used many compressor plugins. My favorites are the Waves for character and before this plugin, I used the built in Logic compressor for most of my utilitarian stuff. Pretty expensive for the whole lot but these are solid plugins. I would recommend.
