Compressor II beta 4
- Re-built the whole project based on the JUCE
library (previously VSTGUI).
- x64 performance issues solved.
- Fixed a bug which corrupted the claim “Bit
transparent without processing”.
- Fixed a (practically irrelevant) bug related
to an internal re-sampling filter.
- Key Filter selection now via Combo-Box.
- Smooth, fancy LED animations.
- “Peak Mode” is now “Peak Ratio”, was moved
to the right and has a new switch graphic.
- Velocity based knobs/sliders.
- “Jump to default value” now via
The TDR Feedback Compressor II is a
radical revamp of its critically acclaimed
predecessor. The processor elegantly combines the
self-adjusting properties of feed-back compression
with an advanced, yet musically intuitive control
Most modern compressors analyze the
input signal to control gain reduction. This
compressor design however, listens to the output.
This non-intuitive approach delivers an unobtrusive
and highly musical compression characteristic that
is able to handle complex signals with ease. The
Feedback Compressor II embeds this old compression
topology into a state of the art processing
structure and combines it with unusual, but highly
flexible, yet intuitive control scheme.
The compressor is carefully tuned
for intuitive and musical operation under most
circumstances. No compromises have been made in
order to achieve the highest quality dynamics
Beside the inherent “feed-back”
behavior, the processor comes with an array of
unusual features and great flexibility. The most
notable is probably the unusual two-stage release
timing controls. But also the “Peak Crest” control
scheme, the generous transfer function display, as
well as mastering optimized side-chain filters and
stereo link options.
We want to emphasize the fact that
the processor neither tries to emulate any
previously available device, nor does it follow
popular trends like “virtual analogue”, “circuit
modeling” or similar buzz terms. This is a proud
digital processor, made with an immense amount of
love and care.
The new beta is available to
download for Windows (VST). With the move to the
JUCE framework, Mac VST and AU is expected in the
