|Beatskillz Bounce Compressor Plug-in|
Bounce is specifically designed to do much more than just compress audio; it has a fully controllable Detector section to "dial in" very specific compression effects on drums, bass, synths, vocals--any source including full mixes for "In The Box" mastering.
You can use Bounce in full bandwidth mode for smooth non-intrusive dynamic control and then use the side-chain filter to emphasize the compression of certain bands of frequencies allowing all others to pass mostly unaffected.
Bounce is outfitted with all the controls of a professional compressor including: Attack, Release, Threshold, Hard/Soft knee, and adjustable compression Ratio up to 20:1. I like the choice of Peak or RMS detectors and I always like the separate Input and Output/Makeup Gain controls! There is good I/O metering and a side-chain listen button.
The Range control sets the frequency range, from 60Hz to 10kHz, of the side-chain equalizer/filter and the Range Q sets its bandwidth. The incorrectly named Feedback controls sets the strength of the side-chain filter's affect on compression while the Wet/Dry control sets the mix or ratio of compressed to input signal.
I had the most fun using the High Pass mode on the side chain filter--it radicalizes the filter for getting wacky dynamic reversal effects when combined with the careful setting of the Attack and Release controls.
Available in VST/AU/AAX running on Mac OSX and Win 32 & 64-bit, Bounce is a useful, musically creative and adaptable compressor--awesome! It sells for $99 downloadable at: www.beatskillz.com/bounce/.
