This is a gentle squashy compressor
intended for use on busses, though it also works
well on channels. It has a very soft knee, with a
ratio that gradually increases to hard limiting, and
an RMS based level detector with a window size that
depends on the attack time.
This unit is inspired by a
particular bit of hardware that I know quite well.
Its not “modelled” however: I came up with the
algorithm first, and thought it sounded similar, so
then skinned the plug to resemble the hardware. It
is definitely not a proper model however, so I’m not
going to name the unit in question.
