Klevgrand have released Richter, a tectonic compressor designed for heavy compression chores. Richter is available to desktop users at the intro price of $29.99, increasing to $69.99 after the promotion. The iOS version is available at the intro price if $4.99, increasing to $12.99 after the promotion. The offers end June 15th.
Richter is the culmination of years of experimentation, resulting in a compressor that empowers you to squeeze every bit of sonic perfection out of your tracks like never before. From mixes to vocals, punchy drums to smooth, transparent vocal tracks, Richter delivers great results across multiple genres.
Richter has been designed to achieve heavy compression with a minimal amount of artifacts. It is the result of many years of experimenting in the Klevgrand labs. Normally a heavily compressed audio signal gets distorted, often with a nasty “zipper noise” artifact because of how the internal envelope followers are engineered. The experiments led to a brand new approach resulting in a compressor that empowers you to squeeze every bit of sonic perfection out of your tracks. Use it for meaty mixes, punchy drums or smooth, transparent vocal tracks.
Due to how the algorithm is designed, there are a few unconventional controls to tame Richter. First of all: one single parameter controls how much compression will get applied. The other (important) parameter controls how the internal envelope follower will react to transients vs continuous/lasting sounds. These two parameters make Richter a highly intuitive compressor where the user quickly will be able to dial in the wanted sound. On top of that there’s a boost switch that literally makes the amount span go to eleven. And, as the name suggests, earthquake levels are possible.
