BattleComp Vintage VST compressor

The BattleComp Vintage is a punchy, yet smooth compressor with an EQ and a highpass filter on it's internal sidechain and tube emulation + soft-clipping circuit in the output stage to keep peaks under control, all in one VST plugin. The highpass 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. The plugin is written entirely in C++ by me, Joachim Michaelis in 2010.

  • Documentation
  • Tip: Increase the "Big Freq." button if the bass makes the sound pump.
  • Tip: Leave Threshold at +10 dB to disable the compressor.
  • Tip: If you're not sure how it all works, leave low / middle / high at their neutral default position.
