platinumears has released 5ORCERY, a free VST effect plug-in for Windows that is described as a "meta-multi-band" compressor using dynamic EQ.
5ORCERY takes a specific approach to multi-band compression: the signal is still split into separate bands using cross-over filters, and these still feed the side-chains of separate compressors, but the filtered signals are not mixed back together again. Instead the gain modulation signals from all five compressors are matrixed into modulation signals for 4 dynamic shelving filters plus a gain stage.
To put it another way: while this plug-in behaves like a multi-band compressor, it is also a constantly changing 4-band equaliser.
- Multi-band compression.
- Dynamic EQ topology designed to reduce phase artifacts.
- Five FL4TT3RY 2 compressors, with band-limited side-chains.
- External side-chain inputs (switchable per band).
- "Solo in place" function for each band.
- Soft clipping designed to keep your peaks below 0dBFS.
- Gain / Gain Reduction meters with switchable range.
