Solid State Logic Release Blitzer

Solid State Ligic have released Blitzer, an analogue hardware-inspired character compressor – capable of everything from soft, saturating compression to explosive brick-wall limiting. Blitzer is available as part of the SSL Complete Subscription, that’s every SSL plugin for $14.99/month.

In addition to adjustable transient shaping and vintage-style harmonic drive for adding colour to your tracks, Blitzer offers 10 unique compression curves across 10 ratios, each with a unique shape and tone.

With the distinct response of tube, VCA and vintage opto compressors all from a single easy-to-use interface, you’re never more than a click away from what you need. Combined with MIX control for parallel compression, AUTO GAIN to help maintain your levels, and SSL’s contextual help system, Blitzer is a versatile compressor plug-in with startling variation.

Features include:

Classic analogue knee compressor 

Inspired by hardware such as the 1176 and LA-2A, Blitzer offers 10 unique compression curves across 10 ratios. This unique character compressor can deliver everything from soft saturating compression to explosive brick-wall limiting.

Add colour to your tracks 

Use the DRIVE control to generate subtle and gentle harmonics or destroy your signal. You can even use the compressor in 1:1 ratio to warm your tracks without compressing. 

BLITZ! mode 

Slam room mics or energize your entire mix using the “all in” BLITZ! mode – compounding brick-wall limiting with a logarithmic decay gives a distinct sound that sounds amazing on live drum room recordings. But the fun doesn’t need to stop there. Get creative!

Parallel compression 

The MIX control can be used to dial in the original signal – allowing for parallel compression and punch, or for simply reducing the intensity of the effect to blend in better with the rest of your mix.

Detection sidechain 

Use the HPF to remove unwanted low-end frequencies – perfect for drum busses! – and tame unruly vocals and harshness using the detection sidechain bell filter

Built on the SSL Plug-in Engine 

The SSL Plug-in Engine offers cross-platform preset management, A/B comparison, a built-in UNDO/REDO stack and brand new built-in contextual help to guide you through the features of the plug-in.

Blitzer is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX).
