- DC1A received a mix control to enable parallel
compression. The VU is now switchable between output
and gain reduction.
DC1A is the little
brother of Klanghelm's upcoming compression monster
DC8C. I've taken one of my favorite
settings from DC8C and tried to make it work in a
two control context. Soundwise it's comparable to
the PUNCH mode in DC8C.
I've always wanted to do a
compressor with just an input and output knob, a
compressor that just works: gentle, grateful, from
almost invisible, smooth leveling to heavy pumping
with a nice crunchy saturation and punchy enough to
treat drums with.
DC1A looks like a one trick pony.
But don't get fooled by lack of further controls.
You may be surprised, on how many different material
this little thing works. DC1A is heavily program
DC1A is free! So try it out for yourself.
