Sonalksis TBK3
I have a few days with the TBK and TBK2.
Bundle of 3 plug-ins is 185 euros 120 euros against the plug-in only ...

Installation easily recognized immediately by 6 LIVE

The manual? not yet looked at this as a plug-in is easy to configure. A large knob and some adjustments and that's it!
Ideal for those who can not adjust a conventional compressor or the lazy.

9 / 10 because it is a little expensive ...


On my AMD 4200 + dual core with Live 6 (which manages the dual core), it takes only 1% of CPU resources, allowing to put across without being blocked. Of all the compressors that I use is the lightest so congratulations to the team Sonalksis!


I use it mainly for the stage of composition to densify certain tracks very quickly and get closer to the final sound.
I place it on the tracks that I want, I turn the big knob and I experiment with the buttons that manage the attack. All this takes a few seconds and is very effective since you can go from a fairly gentle compression to extreme compression and everything very efficiently and music!

I also use it to mix some drum loops / beats where he is terrible.
Extreme big cuts possible! A real tool for sound sculpture can transform a beat skinny fat in something so much trip hop!

on the other hand, there are better for the treatment of separate tracks or solo as it is a little "nag" even and especially when there are not many settings to work fine. it compresses strong but suddenly it often lacks air ...
I have not tried it on vocals because I have my ways with the Waves plug-ins.

It is like the Swiss Army knife of compression.
Ultra easy to adjust, efficient and music on virtually all sources, not processor intensive and not too expensive, good at all!

Little greedy, used on fruity, name a dog that his rings to a number of affiliates I ripped a jaw.
shame about the price, but simple, radical and effective repetition.


In fact compared to ad something else, it saves time, its pete with the fire of the gods at once, and there is a large button with plug.

Sonalksis TBK3
No problem.
Works well on FruityLoops 8.


On a computer the most correct (Win XP Sp2/Dual Core/4GoDDR/4hd 10.000rpm) is without any problem.


How long have you use it?
Dj almost a year.
What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Trs simple, efficient and fast. No loss of time dtails inaudible.
Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Yes, and I always use others for various purposes.
How do you report qualitprix?
Plutt properly seen the effectiveness and sound.

A friend pass a USB key containing tens of compression plugins. Obviously no license, but to test c'tait perfect. T I soon conquered by the Sonalksis and I put less than two days can no longer do without. So I acquired the TBK3 and two plugs of the same supplier.

The TBK3 is not the end of the compressor, it has not the ct "patator" a Universal Audio 1176 or BF76 Bomb Factory, but it's not a bad thing. It is good to have a range of treatments from me and without more clinical than typ it allows to adapt the treatment as a genre you want to give. I love the slamming bass of TBK3 (techno or electric) and I think it gives an excellent update on the snare. For the most "fat" I am fan of URS 1975. The TBK3 uses almost no CPU resource is an excellent point. He gets along well with the kind of freeware Dominion or MDSP.
The TBK3 apprciable is to raise a little at the end of a reverb bus. I often use the APRS MDEX (Korg) "Space Reverb" Slap mode with the addition of "noise". Fierce function seems far too violent for most tracks.
