Jon V Audio – Fircomp 2 – vst3 Win x64 update May 16 2021
Ultra clean peak compressor/limiter with punchy attack, musical release, and optional lookahead smoothing, for tracks or busses. Zero/low latency and low CPU.
■ Fast or same-sample attack times that never sound “clicky”, even in zero latency mode ■ Even cleaner than Fircomp 1. Both can be used side-by-side ■ Innovative digital envelope detection allows for much lower distortion than typical peak compressors, without overshoot or lag ■ Optional lookahead FIR gain smoothing for an even cleaner sound ■ Shape-able release stage with musical, highly history-dependent behaviour. Avoids use of multiple compressors in series! ■ Sidechain hipass filter and external sidechain ability ■ Easy stereo options with stereo link and balance ■ Mid / side processing mode ■ Perceived loudness metering, with easy makeup gain and balance snapping ■ Switchable vertical or horizontal gain reduction metering, with adjustable range ■ Quick loading of presets, bucket comparison system ■ Make it yours, with a resizable GUI, customizable colours and background image! ■ Low CPU, fully 64-bit DSP code, making full use of SSE instructions. Insert on every track without a second thought! ■ Zero latency with lookahead off. With lookahead on, compensated latency of 1.5ms ■ No phase shift or change in frequency response of the audio signal
Released a small update to fircomp 2 today, with some minor improvements, and a new “coupled peak” mode which is a slight variation of the standard mode
