Techivation Release M-Compressor

Techivation have released M-Compressor, a spectral audio compressor, available at the intro price of $54.00, increasing to $149.00 after the promotion. The offer ends October 31st.

M-Compressor is an advanced spectral audio compressor that offers both downward and upward compression, providing distortion-free and artefact-free dynamic processing for any sound. It comes with dynamic thresholds to ensure balanced compression across the spectrum, without over-compressing the low frequencies and under-compressing the highs.

Regular compressors adjust the overall signal level based on its relationship to the compressor threshold. Instead of the overall signal level, M-Compressor works with the signal spectrum. Individual frequencies are compressed based on their levels relative to the spectral threshold curve.

The spectral thresholds are what allows M-Compressor to operate artefact-free. The shape of the spectral threshold is determined by the spectral contour of the input signal, and it dynamically changes with the input. This ensures balanced compression across the spectrum, without over-compressing the low frequencies and under-compressing the highs, which is typical for regular compressors. It also preserves the original tonal balance of the input signal.

In addition to the traditional downward compression, M-Compressor also offers a spectral take on the upward compression. In downward compression, the signal level is reduced when it exceeds the threshold. Upward compression works in the opposite way: the signal level is boosted when it falls below the threshold. This is particularly useful when you want to bring out the ambiance in the signal or achieve more aggressive sounding compression.

The user interface offers an intuitive experience for making quick and easy adjustments to both downward and upward compression.

For cases where changes to the tonal balance are desired, the plugin also offers a tilt control for the spectral thresholds. It allows to apply more compression to one part of the spectrum, while compressing the rest of the spectrum less.

This feature is very useful for controlling depth, width, warmth, and the colour of the sound.
