BattleComp Vintage is a punchy, yet
smooth compressor with an EQ and a high-pass filter
on its internal sidechain and tube emulation +
soft-clipping circuit in the output stage to keep
peaks under control. The high-pass filter makes it
easy to avoid pumping effects when there's a lot of
bass - something many compressors struggle with.
This compressor is suitable for both master signal
compression and per-instrument compression.
BattleComp Vintage is free and is available for Mac
OS X and Windows as a VST effect plug-in.
