Acustica have released version 2 of TAN, their FREE VCA compressor which now includes new technology to power it.
- Super light
- Improved audio quality thanks to the oversampling inside the compressor
- New “Hyper” engine
- Internal sidechain
- Stereo link control
- Various optimizations and graphical improvements
Their standard compressors run at 22kHz regardless of sample rate or oversampling; this implies that the reduction, attack, and release curves are not calculated for every sample but for every ‘n’ samples, where ‘n’ depends on the sample rate. For example, on fast transients, the input level is evaluated correctly; however, the reduction is calculated after ‘n’ samples, so the signal containing the transient is not compressed in time, and the transient “escapes” compression.
Now, this new Hyper compression tech calculates the amount of compression and the attack and release curves at each sample, so compression is applied immediately and no longer after ‘n’ samples. The speed of these new compressors can be further increased by oversampling while keeping the power consumption at 1/12th of standard compressors.
TAN 2 is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX).
